Their sound is a combination of classic heavy metal and modern death metal. With catchy hooks and endless melodies Voices of Ruin will have you head banging instantaneously.
The album kicks off with a subtle introduction, preparing you for the chaos that will soon unfold before you and make your ears bleed from joy. Path To Immortality is their first full length album, packed with cohesive drums and relentess guitar work. The titled track “Carved Out” resembles a faster Amon Amarth, hailing from Los Angeles, it delivers a poignant riff in minute 2:40 transitioning to the continuous mayhem. The self-titled track “Path To Immortality” is a skull smasher, with plenty of tremolo and guitar licks it stands it’s ground profoundly. There is no room for breathing, each track is composed with a musical dexterity which will place this band in the higher ranks of the metal scene.
