BATTLE RUINS, Promo Tape (2013)

BATTLE RUINS are a band that are currently sailing under the radar. With a 2009 demo, an incredible 4 song EP that was released in 2010 and a track on a 2011 compilation, "Striving Higher: A Hardcore Compilation" (Six Feet Under Records) — with 4 years under their belts, the time to release a debut full length is upon us.

Notably featuring members of The Rival Mob, Battle Ruins take a much more traditional Punk/Oi approach with a nice hint of NWOBHM elements from time to time in their songwriting. In a time where most Hardcore/Punk bands are being influenced by Metal/Thrash, it's a nice refreshing breath of fresh air for Battle Ruins to remind us that Punk is the true backbone to Hardcore music, then and now.

Rock N' Roll Disgrace will be handling the honors of releasing the upcoming full length. Until then, enjoy these 2 new songs and be sure to keep your eyes and ears open. I have a feeling we are going to be seeing and hearing more (hopefully) from Battle Ruins in the near future.
