"Ruin", the sophomore full-length album from Norwegian Extreme Melodic Metallers COR SCORPII will hit the streets on June 15th, and today we offer the full album stream from below link.

Band statement on the album

"This album is a cross section of a 10-year journey for us. It is a testament to what life has thrown at us and how life interfered with our process. However, as it is with any piece of art, the difficult times are the best stimulant and catalyst for quality. We are incredibly satisfied with how the album turned out!"

 

 

COR SCORPII was Founded in 2004 as an offshoot of the legendary WINDIR. Today's lineup of Gaute Refsnes on keyboards, Inge Jonny Lomheim on bass guitars, accordion and programming, Ole M. Nordsve on drums, Rune Sjøthun on rhythm guitars, mandolin and programming, and Thomas S. Øvstedal on vocals, and Erlend Nybø on lead guitars draw their inspiration from classical music, folk melodies and the soundscapes of Nordic extreme metal.

A follow up to COR SCORPII's critically acclaimed debut album "Monument", which was released eight years ago, also on Dark Essence Records, "Ruin" is the result of a lengthy song writing process which proved, at times, to be quite arduous for the band, and gives its members an opportunity to reveal their hidden talents by making use of instruments not usually used by metal bands, such as the accordion and mandolin.
Successfully blending epic, soaring melodies, with the harshness of extreme metal, "Ruin was recorded at various locations over a period of three years and was mixed by Børge Finstad in his Toproom Studio, and mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll at his Kvalsonic Lab.

With artwork by Novans V. Adikresna of the Marnov Studio, and including featured guests such as the classical singer Annika Beinnes, as well as Mats Lerberg (I SWEAR DAMNATION, ex-FUNERAL) who lend their considerable vocal talents to three tracks each, tracklisting on "Ruin" is as follows:

  1. Svart Blod (Hovmod star for fall)
  2. Hjarteorm
  3. Skuggevandrar
  4. Fotefar
  5. Helveteskap
  6. Ri di Mare
  7. Ærelaus
  8. Siste Dans
