Toxic Ruin is an original thrash metal band derived from a previous heavy metal cover band called The Ruin. After a substantial line up change in 2014, the remaining members agreed on a change of the name and over all sound of the group. Their sound is now only getting faster, heavier, and more progressive at each glimpse of new material. It can be described as straight, in your face, thrash metal, with a hints of death metal and old school rock and roll lead work, focusing on tight, consistent musicianship.
Hailing from the eastern shores of Wisconsin, Toxic Ruin only has but a few other names to share the genre with, one of which being the legendary Morbid Saint. This makes them a staple for their area where many other true heavy metal bands have faded away.
