Here's the new album from Menace Ruine and I just got done listening to it and it's not really what I was expecting but holy crap I liked it a lot. There's really no metal to be found here but more along the lines of surreal feedback and distorted drone soundscapes with chilling monotone female vocals. Fans of avante-garde (especially Nico) will really love this one. Hauntingly beautiful.
