The Other Side Of Darkness was released in 2009. Currently it is played on over 35 internet radio stations.



ECHOES OF RUIN existed in several incarnations until 2006 when the current cast was brought together under this new moniker. Over the past three years, the band has scraped its way along in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago, existing as a rare breed of melodically brutal and authentic heavy metal. Live performances have served as successful exposure as well as a release for the band's continuing frustration in their search for a permanent vocalist spot. But through many auditions, this prospect has proved utterly disastrous. The irony of this situation has been that the perfect singer for the band seemed to be sitting behind the drum kit all along. But only in demos and home recordings can the true music of the band be heard, with the songwriter putting down his sticks and lending his vocals to the tracks.

With influences ranging from PANTERA and METALLICA, to MESHUGGAH and UNEARTH, the band is clearly coming from a modern metal background but with firm roots in traditional heavy music. The emphasis on percussive technicality and adept guitar work have been merged with the epic and emotional melodies in a combination not quite present in today's modern metal scene. Melodic metal with the spirit of brutality. But how can this band even be properly described when technically, they've never even been a full band ... ?

2010 became the deciding year in the band's future. Amidst the stagnancy of progress, everything had become uncertain. But there's no room to fall down further when you've hit the bottom. The exit of a founding member brought the band to an almost complete demise. But entering into 2011 the band is, for the first time, complete. With not only a replacement for the exiting member but a vocalist as well, Echoes of Ruin is planning to start the new year with a new era of the band. Consider it a rebirth; a new beginning. Because after almost 5 years, the band is finally here.
