Unsigned and Unholy

PICTURE IT IN RUINS BETTER START PICTURING SUCCESS [‘CAUSE THEY RULE, DUH]

We first featured Wyoming’s Picture It in Ruins in our “For Fans of BTBAM” Edition of Readers’ Choice last August, but it’s clear from their new stuff that these guys have evolved leaps and bounds in just six months. Luke from the band sent me an update last week with a stream of Picture It In Ruins’ new song “Mass Affect” and I’m positively floored; not only has the band apparently broken their BTBAM-worship shackles but they’ve evolved into something wholly original and stunning, still progressive, but in their own unique way. Stream it below:

Someone please sign this band ASAP! They’ve been together for 11 years — in fucking Wyoming, where the metal scene can’t be all that — and are only getting better and better. It’s an utter injustice that bands like System Divide have record deals and these guys have nothing. West coasters can catch them on tour in March with Antagonist (dates here).
