My Ruin - A Prayer Under Pressure Of Violent Anguish (Spitfire) - Back
Fronted by former Manhole/Tura Satana singer Tairrie B, My Ruin has came out with their second full length album entitled "A Prayer Under Pressure Of Violent Anguish." This album is an interesting and intense ride from the beginning to the end. The disk is filled with heavy, catchy riffs to keep you going with Tairrie B's screaming vocals pulling everything together. Originally this band was Tairrie's solo project after she left Tura Satana, and it has turned into much more then a solo project. "A Prayer..." was produced by Nick Raskulinecz. He has been credited with producing bands such as Superdrag, Goatsnake, Downset, Marilyn Manson and Danzig. The CD has a total of 14 tracks that will leave you in awe, and the 45 minutes plus of music is enough for you to start a mosh pit in every room of your house. There are quite a few good tracks on this CD, the good majority at least. My favorite tracks include "Beauty Fiend," "Stick It To Me," "Heartsick," "Miss Ann Thrope," "Letter To The Editor," and "My War." There is nothing fake about this band either and they have the stuff to back it up. They are in it for the music and Tairrie B says that she is finally where she wants to be in music. All fans of Crisis to Black Sabbath should find something to their liking on this CD. Don't be afraid to check out a band that you haven't heard, you may be surprised.
