ROAD TO RUIN, the new Swedish four-piece featuring guitarist LION'S SHARE's Lars Chriss and Sampo Axelsson alongside drummer Thomas Broman (HUGHES/ TURNER, JOHN NORUM, ELECTRIC BOYS) and vocalist Matti Alfonzetti (SKINTRADE, JAGGED EDGE), will release its self-titled debut album on October 26 via Metal Heaven Records. According to a press release, ROAD TO RUIN's influences come "from the classic rock era and carry trademarks from artists such as WHITESNAKE, THIN LIZZY, DEEP PURPLE, LED ZEPPELIN plus — especially when it comes to the guitar sound — BLACK SABBATH."
ROAD TO RUIN was founded in the year 2005 when guitarist Chriss and Axelsson started to write some material which didn't fit their melodic metal band LION'S SHARE. The recordings were produced by Chriss, Axelsson and Alfonzetti.
