Ruiner EP


This 3-track 7" serves as the band's swansong, but considering that I had never heard them until this record showed up, it hardly matters. A fitting epitaph? Eh, probably not. Anyhow, Personkrets 3:1 play(ed) crusty hardcore with a pronounced metal influence that creeps through in the various breakdowns and quick solo breaks that pepper each song. They put it off competently enough, but it's just not that interesting for the most part. The one exception however is "Krigssång", a track based on an old poem by Dan Andersson which is by far the most melodic and best composed tune on the record. It makes me feel like if they embraced their metal side a bit more, they'd be a better band, but I suppose that's a moot point considering their current inactive status. Perhaps the ex-members' new band Misanthropic will tip the scales further one way or another, wait and see.
