5.0 out of 5 stars Melodic metal at its best! November 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I saw Age of Ruin live, and the show was outstanding! I bought this cd from the band, and have not been disappointed. The guitars blend perfectly with each other and the solos are all quite melodic, and when meshed with the singer's clean screaming and singing vocals and the drummer's double bass drum (done with only one pedal), it makes great music. Yes, that's right. Believe it or not, this metal band actually makes music, a quality not too many of this genre have accomplished. This album is definitely one worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars First class American melodic death metal December 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I'm always surprised to hear the term "metalcore" used in descriptions and reviews for Age of Ruin's albums. After hearing a pair of AoR EPs (Autumn Lanterns and The Longest Winters Woes) and the band's 2004 full-length The Tides of Tragedy, I've found very little of what I'd consider your typical metalcore sound. What I do hear plenty of (and which is the reason I keep buying AoR albums) is a healthy dose of Swedish-style melodic death metal in the At the Gates/In Flames/Soilwork vein. I love when bands manage to inject extreme metal with melody, and Age of Ruin always does a great job at that, which is something you definitely don't see a lot of in the average metalcore band.

I will grant that The Tides of Tragedy has a sharper, faster sound than say Autumn Lanterns, and one that puts them a little closer to the average Headbangers Ball band, but that doesn't change the fact that this is still a melodic death metal album at heart, and a damn good one at that. The vocals (the harsh ones anyway) are very reminiscent of the Haunted, and the guitar riffs are every bit as intense as what In Flames is serving up these days. I'm not crazy about the clean vocals, but they play a relatively small part on an otherwise very strong album.

Oh, and there's a pretty useless 1:30 minute live instrumental track added to the closing song "A Portrait of Solemn Seas". I have no idea what the band thought they were giving us with that one.

However you end up classifying this album, The Tides of Tragedy has enough going for it that it should please most fans of extreme metal. It's not often that an American band can play at a level even with their Swedish counterparts, but Age of Ruin has demonstrated time and again that they are up to the task.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 February 1, 2005
By CCCore
Format:Audio CD
I would have given this album a full five, if not for the clean vocals. I don't mind clean vocals, Trivium is one of my favorite bands and he sings quite regularly throughout the album. But these vocals, are awfully generic sounding, and only get in the way of the music. Greta album, if you like melody in your metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing May 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This CD gets no respect. Granted Atreyu is sick, but AOR blends melody and screaming like no other. All I have to say is that I have never met anybody who knows who these guys are and it is one of my favorite CDs. Atreyu is blowing up and this is equivolent quality. I guess my point is buy this CD.
