Scraping Genius Off The Wheel

LET’S WAVE GOODBYE TO RUINER

90

Though we’ve known about it for a few months and had ample opportunity to pre-grieve, hardcore fans finally have to come to terms with the fact that Ruiner, the five-piece Baltimore beast, has officially broken up. After six years and two solid albums for Bridge Nine Records, the band played one final hometown show this weekend as a proper send-off, with openers including Defeater, Killing The Dream, and surprise guests Strike Anywhere.

While quality footage of Ruiner’s set from the show is not yet online, hate5six Productions has already posted some of the other band’s sets here, so you may want to watch that space. In the meantime, watch this video of their full set at This Is Hardcore 2010 and check out the gorgeous poster that marked the final gig.

R.I.P. Ruiner…
