The Path to Atrocity

Rated 3/5 (60%) (3 Votes)

Some people get their creative juices flowing faster than others. Order To Ruin, a 3-piece melodic German Death Metal outfit, was formed out of the ashes of Grimblade in January 2012 with more energy and determination than a flock of hungry seagulls. They have already recorded two EPs and three full-length studio albums. Yep, you read that right; three full-length studio albums in just three years. The Path to Atrocity is Order To Ruin's third album overall and the second in 2014. They already released The Loss of Distress in May 2014. Talk about serious dedication to the songwriting process.

Order of Ruin is a talented trio that churns out tasteful melodic Death Metal that borrows tiny bits and pieces from Thrash and Black Metal, which gives this record some extra kick. Order To Ruin sounds ambitious and focused and avoids doing the same song twice while maintaining a good, aggressive vibe throughout the entire album. With a couple of acoustic and spoken sections they keep their stuff varied, which is also important if a band hopes to impress people. A song like "A Superior Entity" sounds like early Amorphis at the beginning before it gets some air under its wings and flies quickly towards the darkening horizon to kill the last sunbeam of the day.

I honestly didn't expect much from this album but got more than I thought I would. Sound like some promising talent here? That's what I think.
