“DELIVERANCE” VIDEO NOW PLAYING AT METALSUCKS + PRE-ORDERS AVAILABLE
September 25, 2020 -- Progressive deathcore unit WITHIN THE RUINS will release their long anticipated sixth full-length, Black Heart, via Entertainment One (eOne) / Good Fight Music on November 27th.
The mission statement for album six was simple: domination. WITHIN THE RUINS set out to top themselves, in every conceivable way, and with the suitably titled Black Heart, they succeeded.
Savage, ruthless, unrelenting, and hyper-focused, WITHIN THE RUINS hammers home ten songs of sheer terror with an unforgiving mandate to destroy. Combining the breakneck precision of classic slabs like Invade and Elite with the unrestrained raw aggression of Halfway Human, Black Heart emerges from the most extended space between records with remarkable urgency and energy.
For more than a decade, WITHIN THE RUINS has reigned among the elite of modern death metal, injecting the angsty attack of thrash and the attitude of hardcore punk, while mining the best of deathcore. Audiences quickly grew to understand that WITHIN THE RUINS overlaps into several extreme subgenres without limitations from any of them. The determination and skill evident across their six studio albums and three EPs are outmatched only by their devastating live presence, seen on tours with groups like Killswitch Engage, The Black Dahlia Murder, Suicide Silence, and As I Lay Dying.
Vocalist Steve Tinnon arrived for his full-length debut with a mountain of things to get off his chest, screamed throughout the songs with both intensity and dexterity. He previously fronted another band that included WITHIN THE RUINS bassist/vocalist Paolo Galang, making this version of the outfit a supergroup of sorts, combined with co-founders, guitarist Joe Cocchi and drummer Kevin McGuill. As with previous records, Cocchi produced his parts as well as his bandmates, together with longtime producer, mixer, and mastering engineer Joshua Wickman of Dreadcore Productions.
New powerhouses like “Domination,” “Deliverance,” “Hollow,” and “Outsider” take their place alongside WITHIN THE RUINS anthems like “Gods Amongst Men,” “Beautiful Agony,” and “Enigma.” The group stands tall among their peers in postmodern death metal, technical progressive metal, and the so-called “deathcore” movement, with Gojira like flourishes of color and meditation.
In advance of the release of Black Heart, WITHIN THE RUINS is pleased to unveil a video for first single “Deliverance,” now playing at MetalSucks.
Issues Tinnon, “We’re extremely excited to finally start sharing this album with everyone! We’ve been working on it for well over a year and really trying to zero in on what the new version of WITHIN THE RUINS was going to sound like, and we’re very proud of the new direction. ‘Deliverance’ is a great representation of the darker, angrier approach we wanted to take and felt it was an appropriate first track to release. We can’t wait to release Black Heart and start this next chapter!”
