Canadian Black Noise

Menace Ruine are a two piece woman/man black metal band from Montreal that run more into the electronic ambient noise realm more than the world of studded leather armlets and white face paint.

Female vocals in a chanting medieval monastry vibe over psychadelic drone and atmospheric wall off fuzz high end. Programmed drums that are both Velvet Underground and WITTR at double speed and THE longest metal hair ever!

Its great to find a BM band that are half female, its less boys toys and machismo.
But no less grim dark and death awaiting!

"The Die Is Cast" and "Cult of Ruins" albums were both out lsat year on Alien8 Recordings.

Check their Myspace (Without any friends -SO black metal!) here:

  1. Great shout. I might do an IMP female featured black metal special - this band, WITTR, Hammers Of Misfortune, Cobalt (Jarboe does vocals for them), Amesoeurs, Ludicra, Nadja (if they count...almost). There are more, surely, but I can't think of them at the moment.
