"Last Light", the second album from Ireland's FOR RUIN, is available for free download (as well as on CD and high-quality MP3) from the band's newly relaunched web site, www.forruin.com. The effort will also be released through all major digital outlets (iTunes etc.) soon.
A strictly limited collectors' edition CD version of the album will be available at a number of the band's upcoming gigs. Limited to 100 copies, it features the Paul McCarroll-designed album artwork along with an A4 poster and clear numbered stickers with the thorns motif.
"Last Light" was recorded earlier this year with producer Alwyn Walker at Komodo Mobile Studios and it features artwork (below) by Paul McCarroll who has previously worked with PRIMORDIAL, among others.
"Last Light" was preceded by the release of a digital-only EP, "Enlightened", available from the band and shortly through CDBaby. The EP contains new album tracks, a remixed older track and other material.
"Last Light" track listing:
01. Enlightened (instrumental)
02. Care Of The Dead
04. In Suffering
07. Crawl (instrumental)
