Horrible, terrifying things happen at the crux of death and black metal, and Ruin Lust's own brand of the genre fusion rests at the apex of nightmarish cruelty. Comprised of many New York (and beyond) genre stalwarts, featuring members of Yellow Eyes, Anicon, Vilkacis, Vorde, and more, Ruin Lust takes a heavier detour when compared to its members' more atmospheric musings, zeroing in on brawn, might, and hatred to fuel their frenzied sounds.

There is no need for atmospheric blurring or eight-bar drum fills to pass time here: these New Yorkers make compact odes to hate and discomfort.
