Sonic Cathedral.Com 'Top 5 Album Picks' of 2010!

Thank you to Miss Robin Stryker for choosing 'Ghosts and Good Stories' as her #1 pick for '5 Best Albums of 2010' on! Robin rocks and we love what she had to say about My Ruin.

1. My Ruin – 'Ghosts and Good Stories'

Much to my surprise, an album from the heaviest end of the metal spectrum tops my list for 2010. My Ruin’s sixth album, "Ghosts and Good Stories," is equal parts a cry of triumph and howl of outrage that announces in no uncertain terms that this Los Angeles band is not fading into the long dark night any time soon. Their release is a sledgehammer of aggression, forged in the fury of Tairrie B. Murphy’s blistering screams, venomous whispers, and rippling spoken-word passages, then given shape on the anvil of Mick Murphy’s rock-infused guitars. Yet, despite being marrow-splatteringly heavy, "Ghosts and Good Stories" ultimately is an album that speaks the band’s personal truth with lovely (if brutal) clarity.

Blistering. Com 'Top 10 Album Picks' of 2010!

Thank you to Miss Sara Heitman for picking both 'Ghosts and Good Stories' by My Ruin and 'Grandes Canciones' by Neanderthal to be a part of her staff writers list of *Top 10 Album Picks of 2010* on Blistering.Com. We appreciate the rock love and mention!

Mr & Mrs M

Here's what she had to say about each:

My Ruin - 'Ghosts and Good Stories' - 2010

It seems that My Ruin has run into a series of obstacles with shoddy labels and changing line-ups over the past ten years. With the remaining musical duo of Mick and Tairrie B. Murphy steering the reins, planning a U.K. tour, and participating in Hammerfest, I have a feeling that Ghosts and Good Stories will finally fall into the right hands.

Neanderthal - Grandes Canciones - 2010

Neanderthal is Mick Murphy's (My Ruin) instrumental side project. This collection of songs honors the beauty of playing an electric guitar. It is refreshing to take a break from words for a few minutes. Just sit back and let the music speak for itself.
