10. Sky Splitter (Halfway Human, 2017)

“The introduction of cleans was done perfectly, flows right along with the music and doesn’t interrupt from the awesomeness that was already Within the Ruins. Feels like they used less crazy effects on the guitar and kept it cleaner. Love this approach. Hope they keep going on this path.”

9. Ataxia (Invade, 2010)

“This album blew me away, Within The Ruins is clearly a stand out band. They play off tempo”breakbeat” and are proud of it. The guitar work is amazing! Its so fast it’ll knock you straight to the ground. Then when you’re trying to stand they pummel you with low tuned chugging breakdowns which almost always open with a pushing bass drop.”

8. Objective Reality (Halfway Human, 2017)

“If you are a fan of the band, listen to this. I would even say that first time listeners should start here for a more rounded version of the band. Everything here you had heard before, but with the addition of clean vocals, the band moves ahead a notch by progressing. “

7. Ataxia III (Phenomena, 2014)

“If you’re a fan of Within the Ruins, you know about what to expect but it’s their best yet and has a few new elements. The way they’ve integrated some electronics just adds to the craziness, in a good way, and their offbeat timing is familiar but still fresh.”

6. Solace (Elite, 2013)

“I’ve been a big Within the Ruins fan for a while now. Their technical yet groovy style is unique and their musicianship is second to none. Intense drumming, intricate riffs, and soulful harmonies make this band stand out from the rest of the “death-core” crowd.”

5. Feeding Frenzy (Elite, 2013)

“This album is solid from start to finish, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys metal. I tried picking out the tracks that highlight the album, but they’re all equally amazing. I look forward to hearing more from Within the Ruins in the future.”

4. Calling Card (Phenomena, 2014)

“If you’re looking to open up your mind and Horizon to a different kind of sound look no further. There’s a Groove kind of metal to some of the tracks where as others are full out aggression with some methodically placed melodic and heavy breakdowns interchanged.”

3. Ataxia II (Elite, 2013

“This album is both technical and furious and to me sounds like a combination of their previous albums Creature and Invade. If you are new to this band Elite is a good place to start although the other albums are just as good. This is one of my favorite bands.”

2. Enigma (Phenomena, 2014)

“One thing I really like about this band is that they have a distinct sound that helps them to stand out in an ocean of Metal bands. So often we see bands release an album that is such a departure from their previous material that they sound like an entirely different band and often not in a good way.”

1. Gods Amongst Men (Phenomena, 2014)

“The band has included more of a melodic flow, the songs have slowed down a tinge, and each track is much more memorable. This is exhibited clearly through the chorus of “Gods Amongst Men” and the synthesizer strategically placed throughout. This denotes their mature status as a band. The ever-strengthening bass seems to be prominently heavier, and the synthesizer seems to be more cleverly used as it adds to, but does not dominate their sound.”
