"Born From Ruins are hard-working metalheads, and they’re damn proud of it. Their sound continues to get tighter as they develop all facets of their music: Front man Blake Ortiz’s vocal prowess, backed admirably by heavy percussion, solid bass (including a solo here and there) and one hell of a lead guitar.
