Within The Ruins
Aversions Crown
Currents
Although not particularly valued for their innovation, but rather their ability to craft earworm hooks and catchy riffs within the system of a preexisting, shopworn template, Within the Ruins have long stood out from the usual slew of nondescript Deathcore bands primarily through guitarist Joe Cocchi's tasteful blend of bottom-heavy, groove-oriented riffs with fluid, melodic leads overladen. The rhythm section, driven by drummer Kevin McGuill and whomever happened to be playing bass on any given album, have been instrumental in bringing Cocchi's intricate rhythms to life, but ultimately the band have lived and died on the strength of Cocchi's guitar compositions, frequently bordering on technical death metal before being lassoed back into traditional metal territory with mellifluous hooks like a cross between Arch Enemy and Iron Maiden.
