More Info

"Gatefold double-LP limited to 500 copies featuring Justin Greaves (ex-Iron Monkey ) and Rose Kemp on guest vocals. ATAVIST "II:Ruined" defines pure epic suicidal sludge doom metal. The band's second album, "II:Ruined", is a massive, monolithic, introverted chapter of audial suffering and torment. It sees ATAVIST plunge further into the audial abyss by incorporating more layers and substance to their art (not unlike the way Japan's Corrupted portray their immaculate aesthetic). Heavier, more diverse, intricate, and melodic, "II:Ruined" is just that; an unforgiving observation of selfreflection, repentance, and desperation. It is interesting to note that this was the final album for this line up of the band, one can only wonder at the self-fulfilling prophecy of such and immense and bleak work. Perhaps its a wonder they are all still alive. This double vinyl edition of II:Ruined on Aurora Borealis marks a long overdue vinyl release for this important milestone of extreme doom, and stands in monolithic testament to their achievement."
