Ruins of Eternity

Rated 3.8/5 (76%) (5 Votes)

Orodruin made a bit of a splash with their debut, Epicurean Mass, way back in 2003, however, in true Doom fashion, this follow-up full-length comes a full 16 years later, with only a few splits, EPs and compilations in between.

Orodruin are all about old-school Doom, with slow, Sabbathy riffs and a general atmosphere of gloom and melancholy. I tend to prefer Doom that is a bit more evil than sad, but this is still pretty good. I always thought this band was a bit overrated, and I still think so, as this is decent for Sabbath-styled Doom, but not really amazing. The production is a bit dry for Doom, and while vocalist Mike Puleo is fine, he's not great by any measure. For my money, The Gates of Slumber or Pale Divine do this kind of thing much better.
