Ruinizer - Decimation In H.D.
Dark Electro, Aggrotech Ruinizer is a tough beast to take in all at once at any time or another. If they're not spitting gnarly electronic twists at you, they're allowing their music to be influenced by any one genre or another. And, in one damned way or another, they make it work. After the release of "Mechanical Exhumation Of The Antichrist" and beginning up the trend of "swaggrotech", the band started to gain more of a following than it already had from their extensive remix work. Which, in all honesty, means that another album would be coming along soon. That's where "Decimation In H.D." stepped in back in April. 

Bringing on more considerably hectic electro-industrial that mixes anything from trip-hop to metal, Ruinizer has continued their trend of breaking boundaries and destroying everything that we've come to expect from the norm. The personality of frontman Jay Ruin and his bandmates easily reflect in the lyrical content of the songs. They are funny, they are sarcastic, and they are words brimming with an uncaring nature that pretty much tells everyone to go fuck themselves, because they're going to do what they want and nobody else is going to tell them otherwise. 

Some of the best songs on the album actually come from their collaborations with fellow label mates and a few more friends. Veil, part of the sexy and quirky duo that is Surgyn, called forth on the song 'Devilution', providing their vocal talent for all to behold and adore. The song itself is a riveting, harsh club-ready track ready to pound apart any who approach it too softly. Both Jade Pegg and Gerry Hawkins of Avarice In Audio teamed up to tackle the title track with Ruinizer. The result is a wonderfully well done, somewhat cinematic, near seven minute track that absolutely rises above all the others with ease. The last guest on the album was Seraphim System who brought forth matching energy as Ruinizer. This ended up creating a high octane, high powered song. 

As far as songs done solely by Ruinizer go, highlights on the album include 'An Army of Ruin'. Though darker than the other tracks, it doesn't let up in quality and allows the album to differentiate from too much of the same. 'Fukdat', as loud and as in your face as it was, is another good song that plays on Ruinizer's chaotic formula to perfection. And, even though it only lasts a minute and fifty one seconds, 'All Hail The Might!' was another song that I really appreciated for its odd pacing and quirky vocals. 

Ruinizer's music is like a fast paced science fiction action flick with lots of robots piloted by swearing men fighting one another. That's one of the best ways I could describe Ruinizer to anybody who has never listened to them before, and it's the way I'm describing them to you now. "Decimation In H.D." is a wonderful follow up to Ruinizer's previous albums, and will help them continue to solidify their name in the scene.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
