Ruins/Usnea- Split 7". Here's a killer split 7" featuring new material from Germany's Ruins and Portland Oregon's Usnea. Ruins play a killer style of HC/Punk and Crust that's highly influenced by classic bands like Cursed, The Holy Mountain, and His Hero Is Gone as well as German HC/Crust vets like Planks, Perth Express, and Alpinist. Usnea are a four piece band from Portland who’s members were also in The Makai, Banishing, Amarok, Dopesmoker, Absence of Light, Lasers for Eyes, Bodhisattva, Effrays, Electric Desert, and Descent From The Cross. Usnea play a heavy style of music that incorporates elements of doom, sludge, and black metal to create their sound. This is a phenomenal pairing of bands and both songs on the split are really good. Highly recommended!
