Ruin - Human Annihilation LP
Ruin strike while the iron’s red-hot and deliver another foul cauldron of filth with “Human Annihilation”. Shit-heavy and strewn with shit, “Human Annihilation” picks up exactly where their “Drown in Blood” ended, and delivers pure and utter ugliness enriched with doomed-out passages, crusty tempos and sudden blasts that are meant to turn your stomach without care. And yet, compared to its predecessor, “Human Annihilation” goes even deeper into the creepiness; its soundfield is still vile and viscous, but there’s an even-more-pronounced lurking dread haunting their no-less-heavy ruminations. If “Drown in Blood” was some sort of bastard child spawned from Hellhammer covers being slammed out by “Realm of Chaos”-era Bolt Thrower taking place in the jam room of Finnish sickos Abhorrence in 1989, then “Human Annihilation” is the beyond-drunk and drugged-out aftermath, where there’s simply no escape from the disease-ridden basement. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. Well, this time, Ruin weren’t gone very long for us to feel any warm feelings for them, and so they deliver the more sickening and hateful “Human Annihilation”.
