From The Ruins
Rising from smouldering remains; the spoils of a hard-fought battle, is the music by From The Ruins, an alternative rock band from Barrie, ON. Since hitting scene in late 2013, the band has focused their attention to constructing songs worthy of rock-anthem status with a very distinct process. Their song genesis is a product of a relentless attack, as the band aims to strip it down to its bare elements and then rebuild and work with it until it transcends their expectations, or abandon it. The resulting songs are packed so full of energy that they could easily ignite an inferno, as their sheer power reverberates over every fibre of your being. They are bound to take your soul hostage with their aggressive, yet complex melodies, dynamic harmonies and emotionally captivating lyrics.
From The Ruins was the vision of veteran musician, Julien Michaud (lead vocals/guitar), Gold record holder for his work with Mattel at Phase One Studios and former member of Richmond Switch. He joined forces with Bryan Lake (drummer; also from Richmond Switch) and two members from Atlantis Blueprint, Adam Skinner (backing vocals/guitar) and Brad Barnett (bass). The band has recently seen the introduction of two new members - Ryan Cooper (backing vocals/lead guitar) and Dave Murray (backing vocals/guitar/keys) after the departure of Skinner in 2016.
Although a new band, From The Ruins is no stranger to the Canadian music industry. Their former bands have opened for such acts as Brett Kissel, Wide Mouth Mason, Big Sugar, Kim Mitchell, Finger Eleven, The Arkells, Big Wreck, Ian Thornley, The Trews, Sloan, Monster Truck, Rick Emmett and April Wine, to name a few. FTR has also performed as a Guns N Roses tribute band, most recently at a fundraiser for SickKids Hospital.
Their debut EP, Wildcat Damage was released in 2016. It includes three songs: “Thread”, “Thrown Away” and “Voices”, along with an official video for "Voices" (directed by Dave Murray). From The Ruins has shared the stage with many bands including Big Wreck, Ascot Royals, Platinum Blonde, Say Yes, The Anti-Queens, The Sole Pursuit and Kill Matilda. They also performed in the Proving Ground Concert Series in Barrie in 2015 and 2016.
Embodying the lyrics from their song, “Slave”, From The Ruins are slaves to the rhythm and take every opportunity they can to perform live for their fans. They are looking forward to potential performances during the busy summer festival season and at local venues around the region.
“With haunting vocals, thought-provoking lyrics and highly technical instrumentation, they demonstrate their potency in the Canadian music scene.” - Canadian Beats
Banned for 7 years, now finally released. What you fear most is among you. bland is an ever evolving group lead by guitarist, singer, song writer Stephen Baird; Recently just moved to Montreal from suburbs of Toronto, Canada.
Gorgeously twisting through an abyss of styles and sonic palettes; bland is the gnome at the end of the road consistently misguiding and deceiving your daily perception of life through melody.
They say they eat reverse-centaurs and gawk at the sun while stumbling on phosphene induced haze. They say that they towel dry in Oregon. They say they play dominos on Sundays in Alabama. Look closely at your neighbour ... trust no-one ... they're here.
Just a sweet, sultry, siren...
