DIVISIONS RUIN: Self-titled: 7”

Pretty generic, heavy crust from Ireland, similar to Ballast without nearly as much charm. You’ve got your requisite male/female vocal tradeoffs, Tragedy-esque melodies, bleak, black imagery, etc. You should pretty much know the drill by now. Granted, it’s incredibly difficult to stand out in this genre, but Divisions Ruin don’t even seem to be trying.
