Planet-Loud.Com Review!

"There is no middle ground when it comes to My Ruin. Everyone has their opinion – some love them, some hate them but, whatever your feelings, there is no denying that when Tairrie Murphy and her now husband Mick Murphy connect in a recording studio, something very special happens. After eighteen months locked away then, it comes as no surprise that their latest offering, Ghosts And Good Stories, sees the pair create a piece of work as powerful as fans have come to expect.

Followers of the band will note that, over the years, there has been a gradual power shift in the My Ruin camp with Mick Murphy joining Tairrie as a main player in defining the My Ruin sound. Whereas the early days saw the line-up rotated with each album/tour, it came as no coincidence that the sound became more settled and defined as Murphy’s signature guitar sound became more of an integral element of the My Ruin sound. As is the norm now, wailing Sabbathy riffs and Down-esque grinding metal pepper the material the pair have created with head-pounders like Malediction best summed up as loud and riffy as fuck. Of course, it’s impossible to ignore vocalist Tairrie Murphy as well who, having spent the last eighteen months of her life experiencing the spectrum of personal highs and lows, delivers a 100% throat-shredding performance yet again leaving most male-vocalists for dust even when, on the likes of Suicide Tuesday, she intertwines her much loved spoken-word inspiration into the work.

With a title like Ghosts And Good Stories, try and avoid listening to this album in a dark room but do listen to it with the stereo cranked up to an ear-bleeding volume. However you choose to listen to this marvelous piece of work, be warned, by the time the haunting Deathknell brings the curtain down on this album, you’ll have just spent the last hour experiencing the true beauty of horror.
