Front the Final Foes
Style: Black Metal
Release date: September 25th 2009

In 2005 I received the Australian black metal band’s ‘Spun Forth as Dark Nets’ promo, a CD that never really got to me. I was totally into the dark, cold atmosphere that they’ve created but I missed something.


Now they are back with another dark, cold and atmospheric black metal release and they have chosen the title; ‘Front the Final Foes’.


Well... this time they have managed to win me over completely. The songs are stronger and more memorable and my only complaint is the production. It could have been a little better in my humble opinion. The drums sound weak now and then... but that’s my only complaint.


Ruins shifts between mid tempo, cold and gloomy black metal with a death metal edge and faster black metal that we all are so very familiar within this genre. The band is at their best when they slow down and just provide us with heavy, gloomy metal with great guitar melody lines that will knock you on your ass.


Most of the songs are very enjoyable and of course I have my favourites. I won’t name them because I don’t see the point in doing so. We all have different favourites and I promise you that you will certainly find yours if you give this album called ‘Front the Final Foes’ the time it needs to blossom.


There really isn’t anything on here that even approaches filler variety so I can really recommend this album to any genre fans out there.
