NEAR RUIN: Release New Song ‘Smoke & Mirrors’

Maidstone’s Near Ruin have released their new single ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ coming from the upcoming new album No End which will be released next year. The track was due for release on the 18th but was instead released on the 19th due to audio issues. Bassist Luke Knight explains the reason for the delay: “After some initial teething issues, the track is up at last and we’ve been blow away by the support and feedback.

The track is an improvement from their first EP Rebirth with the synths complimenting the heavy riffs nicely. Frontman Markus Kidner’s clean vocals work nicely in tandem with his cleaner vocals, we will have to wait and see if the rest of the album is as good as this song. The long wait is over, Near Ruin are back.

About Jack (873 Articles)
I am a recent graduate from the University of Essex in Colchester where by the luck of Odin I met the editor, Dom. I first got into metal when I was 13 and now I am 22 and own an uncountable amount of band T-shirts. I also regularly attend gigs (local and in neighbouring areas) as well as festivals. My musical taste is varied; I like nu metal (my first love), thrash, black, death, doom, folk, sludge (my favourite genre), symphonic and many more of the multiple genres that metal has to offer, I even like some metalcore (I know it's a dirty word within some metal circles but some of it is outstanding). One of my most memorable metal moments was meeting Grand Magus at the Bloodstock signing tent and having the whole tent to myself, spending a few minutes talking to them.
