Seven years after delivering a deadly first full-length record, VOLITION finally return with their eagerly anticipated second album, which provides a new slab of punishing DOOM from these Northern wasters. Entitled Wreck Among Ruin, the album continues where the debut ends and brings six new tracks that are brutally heavy, filthy, minimalistic, yet consistently pushing forward, this beast is back in business. An hour of Doom that will drag you down. No mercy.
Recorded back in July 2013 at the legendary 1in12 Club Studio with Bri Doom (Doom, Lazarus Blackstar) at the helm, it contains a trimmed line-up of Mark Burns (vocals & bass), Mark Burnett (guitar), Jason Murray (guitar) & James Doyle (drums).
On Wreck Among Ruin, bassist Mark stepped up to the microphone stand full time after they parted ways with vocalist Paul Gibson, although this seems like a new chapter for VOLITION, Mark already provided additional backing vocals and its actually this line-up the band began with in the rehearsal room, before recruiting first vocalist Dave Hodge, but it was going back to the original 4 piece line-up that has seen the band thrive as Wreck Among Ruin proves to be their heaviest work to date.
