After a well recieved EP (split with God-Rot), New Jersey's ABACINATE come back out swinging, and these tracks are bound to connect. Thick, massive production to demonstrate superb songwriting and musicianship. If I'd have to pinpoint this band's style as a single genre, I'd put them as brutal deathcore. They have an array of influences that range from chugging hardcore to brutal and technical death, combined into a well-balanced mix that I'd describe as breakdown-ridden, part melodic - part brutal groovy death metal. Abacinate have plenty of diverse ideas, which make Ruination an original and solid album.
