Metal Recon Scout Report - The Family Ruin

Tony S. June 16, 2015


Band: The Family Ruin

Venue: Summit Music Hall - Denver, Colorado

Show Date: April 17, 2015

Associated Acts: Mushroomhead and Doyle


Background: The Family Ruin is a heavy metal band hailing from York, UK. They were the opening act for Doyle (formerly of the Misfits) and Mushroomhead at the Summit Music Hall in Denver, Colorado. They are currently signed to Ben Bruce's (Asking Alexandria) new label - KBB RECORDS with Johnny Mennell as the lead Vocals, Craig Robinson on Guitar & Vocals, James Langley  on Guitar, Josh Adamson on Bass, and Dom White on Drums. Their influences are Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Motley Crue, Escape the Fate.


Intel Report: Overall this band is very impressive and highly energetic onstage. Their sound is great, and Johnny's vocal range is impressive, the songs "Let it Burn" and "Let's Go" really showcase the band's overall performance and sound. There's no doubt why Ben Bruce signed these guys to KBB Records. If you have a chance, this is Definitely a band that everyone should go see live. Check out their facebook page here:
