Staff review by

Menace Ruine came, dropped two albums on us within the timespan of a few months, then went quiet again. Talk about guerilla tactics. Cult Of Ruins was harsh Black metal with noise and psychedelic effects, The Die Is Cast is... completely different. Well, there are a few binding elements once you know this is the same band, but if you're not aware of that you would never be able to connect the dots.
