Idle Ruin - The Fell Tyrant
G'day, metalheads! Hold onto your oversized spiked wristbands because we've got some roaring news from the land Down Under. Australia, known for its breathtaking landscapes, venomous critters, and maniacal metal bands, has birthed yet another sonic monstrosity. Idle Ruin, the relentless death/thrash juggernaut, has been relentlessly pounding eardrums since its inception in 2020, and their story is one you don't want to miss.
Initially conceived as a studio project by the mastermind Liam Anthony, Idle Ruin's roots dig deep into the gnarled soil of Australian extreme metal. With the strings of guitarist Kaleb Doherty added to the caustic mix, they released a four-track EP that shook the underground scene in mid-2020. The fan response was nothing short of apocalyptic, and that's when things got real.
The project evolved into a full-blown live act, and they needed the earth-shaking low end to match. That's where bass maestro Tim Maastricht stepped in, joining the ranks in 2021. With the lineup solidified, the chaos was ready to be unleashed.
Since the release of their self-titled EP, Idle Ruin has been on a tear, conquering the stages of their homeland, Australia. From New Deadfest to Shredfest, they've decimated crowds and shared stages with the likes of Abramelin, Descent, Vexation, Bastardizer, and the mighty Psycroptic, among many others. They've proven time and again that they're not here to take prisoners; they're here to destroy.
In January 2023, they dropped "The Fell Tyrant," a brutal debut full-length album that sent shockwaves through the metal world. Produced by Brendan “Pip” Auld (Descent, Resin Tomb) and released through Bitter Loss Records, this auditory assault set Brisbane on fire with a sold-out launch show.
The album's title, "The Fell Tyrant", pays homage to Brisbane's grim history as a prison colony and its notoriously savage commandant, Patrick Logan. Idle Ruin's music channels the brutality and darkness of those days into a sound that's as relentless as it is unforgiving.
After a stunning new Australian tour in support of "The Fell Tyrant", Idle Ruin packed its bags in Europe in May. The continent may not have been ready for this sonic tsunami, but one thing is certain: Idle Ruin is ready to conquer.
For those brave enough to delve into their sonic maelstrom, head to the Idle Ruin Bandcamp for live madness.
Idle Ruin has risen, and there's no turning back. Stay tuned, metalheads; this is a band on the brink of global domination. Grab your earplugs and prepare for the sonic onslaught – Idle Ruin has arrived, and they're taking no prisoners! 🤘
