2.0 poorDctarga | December 14th 13

Bad lyrics and poor vocals, would be better off as an instrumental album

Well, it starts off very terribly with the lyrically horrible song "Versus". Now, I do think that being too preachy about religion in music is one thing. But to threaten God for no reason, call him an "evil motherfucker", and lash out at him for sacrificing his life for you? Are you people sick in the mind? I have never heard such a blatantly disgusting and pointless opener for a metal album in my whole life, not even after the more recent All That Remains album opened with "Down Through The Ages". To be clear, yes I am a Christian, and even though it doesn't seem like it, I do take religion very seriously when it comes to music. Again, I don't want songs regarding religion to be too preachy, but at the same time I don't want to hear lyrics such as "Fuck your mysterious ways; Fuck your gift of free will". Not just because it's offensive to me as a Christian, but, it's just so damn pointless. So, other than the terrible "Versus", the rest of the album is vintage metalcore shredding and adrenaline rushing beats, as you can expect from a band like Within the Ruins.

Within The Ruins offers some very good instrumentation, yet some average and predictable lyrics. The drums are very nice and constantly offer something good for every song. There's some pretty fierce guitar work showcased here, which is probably my favorite part of the album. The vocalist is also good in his own right at times, but his material could be a little more original. I can't help but feel like I've heard these lyrics before from some other deathcore band, because I probably have. Maybe on their next album they'll offer some more originality.

2.5 averageSpec | May 28th 11

Typical deathcore formula, typical "God sucks" lyrics. Creature was good though.

2.5 averageiLikeSchlager | December 10th 10

Instrumental is excellent.rThe lyrics in some parts simply suck hard, like in versus. what a shame r

3.5 greatI made this account in 2008 | September 5th 10

Thrill-Seeker era August Burns Red mixed with After the Burial and Veil of Maya.

4.5 superbTheMachinist | August 31st 10

Not exactly a groundbreaking release but did a good job of continuing their formula of catchy lead harmonies and off beat breakdowns. I love this album and hope they develop their sound more with future releases.

Bump

0.0 Wayne H. | August 30th 10

Crushingly heavy, but also technically sound. Within The Ruins seem a bit overly fascinated with harmonization at times, but overall, the album is a VERY solid technical metalcore/deathcore release.

Bump

3.5 greatdixoncocks | August 30th 10

Ya lyrics are pretty bad. Luckily he delivers them beautifully

Bump

0.0 Steven Spedding | August 29th 10

sounds absolutely mental - somewhere between a 2.5 - 4.

Bump

3.0 goodMTTS | August 29th 10

Not super innovative, but has a lot of cool leads and some really good hooks that made me re-listen.

Bump

0.0 rob g | August 29th 10

Average deathcore band releases average deathcore album.
Fresh leads brought down by the same 3 or 4 breakdowns copied in each song. Just boring to listen to. And the vocals are boring. Not much creativity here. The last track was pretty cool though.

Bump

0.0 syco722 | August 29th 10

The guitar-work is probably the best I've heard from a release this year, and the vocal performance itself is remarkable. Unfortunately most of the lyrical content is lacking and keeps me from enjoying this as much as I could.
