Along the Way
Living in Fear
RUIN is a thrash metal band from Portland Maine USA. Staring in 2005, with brothers Richard and Craig Carey, RUIN quickly became a local music sensation.
Their newest and self-released album, Rite of Passage, only further exemplifies the band’s precision, articulate expression and discipline, in their pursuit of no-holds-barred thrash metal. With influences that range from: Pantera, Anthrax, Sepultura, Meshuggah, and Metallica, RUIN has developed their own original brand of thrash metal. Taking their idols sense of groove, soaring leads, and in your face vocals as inspiration to craft their own unique sound. RUIN have been forging their craft since 2005, having released three full lengths and have shared the stage with Strapping Young Lad, Soulfly, God Forbid, and Fear Factory, and many more. RUIN is rounded out by Todd Biddwell (Bass) and Kevin Whitman (Guitar) who each help magnify the sonic force that Richard and Craig envisioned. RUIN’s latest release “Rite of Passage” has seen RUIN’s fan base grow beyond their home town and has caused them to start touring on a regional/international level.
