Idle Ruin are a band from Australia that plays a mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released and self titled 2020 ep.
A very hard and heavy sound starts off the ep while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style. The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody while the faster sections of the songs also add in a lot of tremolo picking and blast beats and the vocals also bring in a mixture of black metal screams and thrash style shouts and screams.
A lot of the music is also very heavily rooted in the 80's and early 90's era while the solos and leads also remain very true to an old school style. The songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some death metal growls also being added into certain sections of the recording and all of the music also sticks to a heavier direction.
Idle Ruin plays a musical style that takes black, death and thrash metal and mixes them together to create a sound of t heir own. The production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Idle Ruin are a very great sounding mixture of black, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Whipped To Death" and "The Devil's Trade". 8out of 10.
