the pioneers of blackened crust, Canada's ISKRA have returned for a new album. After forging the term blackened crust 10 years ago and laying out the blueprint for a political charged black metal / hardcore hybrid that helped to inspire a new wave of anarchist black metal bands around the globe, ISKRA sets a new standart in style with "ruins".
if you would mix up marduk and disrupt, the result would be close to what ISKRA unleashes on "ruins". heavy use of blast beats, carpet rolls and d-beat with highly critical political lyrics and some of the most brutal female vocals you heard in a while.
the LP comes with a 12" 12 page booklet with detailed liner notes / comments to each song. released by 14 european DIY underground labels. pressing of 1000 copies.
