Portland, Maine isn’t exactly thought of as a “metal” city, but bands like Ruin could change that perception. The groove metal quartet bypass pleasantries and frills, instead opting to go straight for the jugular. On new single “Living in Fear,” fat, hardcore-tinged riffs and a rock-solid rhythm section bludgeon the listener while guitarist/vocalist Richard Carey gives a throat-ruining performance.
“Living in Fear” is a cut from their EP Rite of Passage, which was released in 2014. Check out the video for “Living in Fear” below.
