Dakota Ruins Are Coming

Dakota Ruins

The state of Dakota lies in ruins, and the culprits are on their way here.  Only kidding, Dakota is fine.  Causing fear and paranoia by using the media, I mean who would do that.  Six individuals under the name of Dakota Ruins are on their way here however, but hopefully you’ll like it.

Dakota Ruins are a metalcore six piece from Worcestershire.  They have a wide range of influences covering Kill Switch Engage, Bring Me The Horison and even Young Guns.  Dakota Ruins are supported in their quest to conquer the nation’s ear drums by Dry Ice Promotions and Etych Bodyart .  They’ve even played with local lads Artemis Redeemer, who recently gigged with the band at The Unicorn in London.  With this support Dakota Ruins aim to bring their own brand of metalcore to a place near you.

Dakota Ruins’ brand of metalcore is like a house party drinking mix without the bad taste or risk of internal melting.  Tracks from their debut album such as Respawn bring together their influences but also show their own creativity.  Respawn pounds forward with a foreboding tone.  The vocals go from dark growls all the way through to clean vocals, giving Dakota Ruins intensity and sincerity.  Underneath this the powerful riffs and ear catching effects help to keep you more hooked as the track drives on than a teenager that’s just discovered porn.

Making these tracks work live is important to Dakota Ruins, and the live experience is a kinetic one.  They believe in doing their music and crowds justice on stage with a big stage presence.  There’s a high chance you’ll feel moved.  You won’t laugh or cry, but you will bounce around a mosh pit.  See Dakota Ruins for yourself in June, they’ll be playing Ashford, Canterbury and Folkestone.

Get your ears around this band!  Visit their Bandcamp for a free download to tempt you and visit their Facebook to hear even more music.
