When they released their debut EP, Brotherhood, in May 2012, their message was clear as were their influences- Killswitch Engage, Demon Hunter and Bullet for My Valentine, just to name a few. From These Ruins have definitely found and defined a dynamic of aggressive passion, melodic vocals, and groove-heavy drums with grinding guitars.
“Finally a hard rock/metal sound with all the right ingredients! In early 2012 they released Brotherhood. The six track, pulse pounding, over thirty minute album is loaded to the brim with heavy licks, melodic vocals and powerful messages.
From These Ruins finds an impressively rare quality with their sound. Rusty Sparks booms out the perfect metal voice while Jeff Garloch and Timothy Hartman intertwine their tour-de-force guitars. Matthew Bridgewaters and Chad Anderson pack the rhythm section with precision audible explosions. And here’s the bonus, Anderson, yes a metal drummer, shares vocals in plain English, one of the best metal sounds I’ve heard in a long time.” Greg’s Take, NanobotRock.com

From These Ruins have are also on heavy rotation on over 50 radio stations including Broken FM, Righteous Radio – where they have been named band of the month numerous times, Broken Neck Radio, Threat Con Radio and Nuclear Fallout Radio where the band is the current Headline Artist.
From These Ruins have shared the stage with Nine Lashes, I Am Empire, The Wedding, The Protest, Loftland, Lastwatch, Children 18:3, Corpus Christi, Inhale Exhale, and Wolves at the Gate. FTR is continuously gigging this summer and are part of many festivals including Kingdom Come Festival 2013, Lamb Jam 2013, Juggerfest, and the second annual Priasecore Festival. With the little down time they find themselves with, FTR are working hard in the studio writing new material (that they like to debut during shows randomly).
“We are so excited for everyone to hear this new stuff, we don’t want to wait to get in the studio for people to get a taste!” Rusty said.
With the goal to record and a release a full length LP this fall, From These Ruins are doing nothing but putting everything they have into this project.
