    that's quite subjective but that again is obvious. haven't listened to the new track. won't do so until the rest of the album is available either. listening to single tracks from this band is a waste of time.

    Well, it's the least challenging listen of their discography, therefore their most accessible. Still love it though.

    z0z0bra: In Vulva Infernum is probably their most accessible album, though. I loved the clean psychedelic vocals on that release in particular, hope they'll do more like it.

    I'm hoping they will put out "In Vulva Infernum" on cd sometime. It's a great listening-experience.

    i could not agree more with that. this band does not need an "easy listening" album (in some sense The Die Is Cast already was a very accessible record), although from the new track i would assume they went further into that direction. its not necessarily a bad thing of course, but some more experimentation would keep the whole thing more interesting. well, im going to love the new stuff anyways, so whatever... by the way they should play some shows in europe.

    I've a feeling the new album will not be something that any of us are prepared for... in all honesty, I don't think I'd mind if it weren't as "catchy." Menace Ruine's music has a quality to it that doesn't force it to rely on catchy-ness to communicate what it's trying to get across.

    New track is great, but a little less catchy... Either way, can't wait til the new album comes out. @zozobra: you've realised that similarity waaay late! hehe.

    the die is cast at times truly frightens me. the emotions are so horrible and ill.

    i like the new track. not really outstanding, but good. very martial industrial sounding, the moon lay hidden beneath a cloud anyone?

    Dying for the new album, hopefully it will be as good as IVI.

    UNION OF IRRECONCILABLES YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS (who cares about the merzbow collab?)

    Whatever happened to the Merzbow collab?

    If i cant see them live, i'd least want a record so i can pretend they're playing live in my room

    "Dark Mother" is so fucking good. I wish theyd go on tour so I could attend deeply blazed.

  • krumbledkookie

    Yeah, this band just continues to get better every time I listen to them - the production is really outstanding, because I'm always finding something new hiding in the mix. I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to see them play live.

  • hippiedrow

    I agree with John, songs like This Place of Power could go on for more than ten minutes, but they have it at less than three. What a waste...

    Lovely music. I'm really amazed by them.

    January 2010
  • EternalDawn

    My god The Die Is Cast is amazing. Best drone record I have. It just grabs you for 45 minutes and lets you go and you feel like you had an amazing trip and wants more. I really want a new album, no matter in what style it is cause Cult of Ruins and the demo are great too.

    January 2010
  • JohnLithium

    @The_Red_Agent...it has a little bit, but mostly towards the end. It's still a good album, although it seemed sadly somewhat underdeveloped overall (which is a shame, because the best songs are the ones that seem to end abruptly).

    January 2010
  • Agravenlife

    Faak, I want to see them live.

    January 2010
  • The_Red_Agent

    OMG Cult of Ruins is so fantastic. Does "The Die is Cast" completely forgo the black metal aspect? The fact that they throw some black metal "ferocity" in it is one of the reasons I love it. I'd be sad if The Die is Cast didn't even have a little bit. Like, even an occasional blast beat would be alright I guess, lol.

    "Menace Ruine has covered Burzum’s “Dungeons of Darkness”"In here: http://www.montrealmirror.com/2008/022108/music4.html Was it live?

    I took the initiative and trimmed out the parts that sounded transplanted from a 13 year-old's review of a Manowar concert. I hope everyone enjoys.

    "why do people keep rewriting the bio to be shit " *ahem* If i'm not mistaken, it's S who keeps changing it, so just let it stay that way ;).

  • rolandbizzyman

    Yes I agree drones are great to listen to when studying. If that's what you mean.

    December 2009
  • z0z0bra

    i like the destructive feeling of cult of ruins slightly more. but still, the die is cast is a perfect album. the next record should be a double album with 2 hours of all kinds of noisy earthshaking atmospheres. and blast beats.

    December 2009
  • Smirnon

    i'm so ready for a new album more in the vein of The Die Is Cast. it's their best one imo

    December 2009

    why do people keep rewriting the bio to be shit

    yeah if you cant see the bm influence in cult of ruins then idk you are lying

  • rasputinarian

    um have you even heard all of their albums. if you had, you'd know they've got more than a fair amount of black metal elements in the music.

    November 2009
  • z0z0bra

    make a collab with pyramids. merzbow my ass.

    November 2009
  • Psamanthe

    I'm getting more and more into this, I would love to hear some new material too.

    November 2009
  • prropergol

    great....

    November 2009
  • krumbledkookie

    I would love to hear some new material, but I could do without a collab with Merzbow... I think Menace Ruine are better than that. That said, though, I think Menace Ruine's music and vision would lend themselves well to a collab, if they choose the right artist(s) to work with.

    this rules

  • the-last-user

    I agree that collab is risky, but if they pull it off, it's going to be epic as hell.

    Who hasn't done a collaboration with Merzbow?

    October 2009

    Collaboration with Merzbow?! No... pleeeease :(

    October 2009
  • the-last-user

    Excited about the alleged collaboration with Merzbow, which I hope will result in another album of some wonderful sort. Just bought both Cult of Ruins and The Die is Cast on vinyl, which is still available as a combined offer from the TC website..
