My Ruin  


My Ruin is the latest venture of vocalist Tairrie B., an outspoken woman in the underground metal world. Tairrie had a short run with her previous band, which released one album as Manhole and then (due to a legal dispute with another band of the same name) released a second as Tura Satana before that band broke up. My Ruin was then formed, initially as more of a Tairrie solo band before becoming a proper group. Musically the band is a bit hard to pigeonhole -- Tairrie's vocals range from spoken to gracefully melodic to aggressive screaming (she does them all well) with the music occasionally showing flashes of the rap-metal style from the Manhole days but more often resides in the modern aggro-metal world, with no one band really a clear soundalike. For whatever reason My Ruin has really yet to hit the big time in the States (they have a stronger following overseas) -- on the strength of their recent The Horror Of Beauty album, they deserve to be heard.
