2 stars Digital Ruin are the kind of progressive metal band that I don't realy enjoy. They play that type of dark, depressive progressive metal that I don't like almost at all, I never was a fan of this type of prog metal and I never will be. Their second release from 2000 named Dwelling in the out issued at Inside out , is to me a real desaster, or at least almost, the sound, the pieces, the voice all are forgetable here, only the keybords and some guitar parts save the album not to be a mediocre at best. I don't realy find the masterful parts that are in the description of the band written so nice, realy where the hell are those parts, not if I'm listning to this album 100 times, here are mid tempo pieces with boring arrangements and dark elements added on every piece. I have nothing against this band , realy ,all the time I try to be hones in reviews, no matter if is a 2 ir 5 stars album, this time is a 2-2.5 for me. Not my kind of prog metal, I have this album since it was released and I don't think it was spining more then 5 times in 10 years, no wonder now, because the music is terimbly unpleasent for my ears. Not a forte track here, almost all sounds the same, mid tempo pieces with not realy skillfull parts, sometimes sounds like an indie alternative band but more on metalic side. Not recommend , not even for prog metal fans, not to mention the rest. Anyway great cover art, realy.
