Formed in 2006 by S. De La Moth and Geneviève, Montreal’s Menace Ruine defined their harsh and hypnotizing sound on a series of albums for the Alien8 and Aurora Borealis labels. The duo mixes martial ambient and neo-folk influences with elements of experimental music and black metal, adding mesmerizing vocals that set them apart from any other in the North American underground. Alight in Ashes is Menace Ruine’s fourth album and marks a return to the melodic sounds last heard on 2008’s The Die Is Cast. With their first release for Profound Lore, the band delivers their most intriguing, unnerving and spellbinding recording to date—a meticulously crafted work that recalls Burzum’s Filosofem, Merzbow, Nico and The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud. Geneviève’s powerful, haunting vocals weave into the dark, trance-inducing music to cast a spell of elegant, apocalyptic beauty. Menace Ruine soon hits the road with labelmates Ash Borer for a West Coast tour that includes the Stella Natura fest in the heart of Tahoe National Forest’s Desolation Wilderness Area. A series of European dates with Seattle’s Mamiffer is also planned.
