"No Return / In Ruin", the new video from Toronto, Ontario, Canada metallers CAULDRON, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's fourth studio album, "In Ruin", which will be released on January 8 via The End Records. High Roller Records will make the album available in Europe on January 29.
Says CAULDRON frontman Jason Decay: “"We had a camera follow us around for a day, so I guess you could say this video is a day in the life of CAULDRON — on gig day, of course.
"After doing a couple of concept videos, we decided to strip things down and go bare bones on this one. Either way, we still seem to almost get blown up!"
Decay previously stated about the "In Ruin" cover artwork: "We wanted a basic, straight-to-the-point cover without going totally METALLICA 'Black' album; something that catches your eye when flipping through the record bin.
"I saw a decrepit and eerie looking statue hovering in a doorway upon the 'In Ruin' title. We expressed this to our friend Squid (who did the artwork), and I guess you could say it's a cross between 'Poltergeist', 'Alice In Hell' and 'Intravenus De Milo'?!"
For the CD, the trio returned to the Lincoln County Social Club recording studio in Toronto, where they recorded two of their previous albums, "Burning Fortune" (2011) and "Tomorrow's Lost" (2012).
Co-produced by Chris Stringer (RUSH, TIMBER TIMBRE), "In Ruin", is sure to deliver more riffs, more attitude and more modern heavy metal classics while laying waste to all of the genre's imitators.
"In Ruin" track listing:
01. No Return / In Ruin
03. Burning At Both Ends
04. Hold Your Fire
05. Come Not Here
06. Santa Mira
07. Corridors Of Dust

To celebrate the album release, CAULDRON will embark on a U.S./Canadian tour with ENFORCER, WARBRINGER and EXMORTUS in January/February 2016
CAULDRON was born out of the ashes of genre-defining, critically lauded GOAT HORN, the band known for being heavily influenced by BLACK SABBATH, VENOM and JUDAS PRIEST that called it a day in 2006.
Since then, CAULDRON has released the "Into The Cauldron" EP (now long out of print), as well as three full-length albums: "Chained To The Nite" (2009), "Burning Fortune" (2011), "Tomorrow's Lost" (2012) and the "Moonlight Desires" EP (2014).
The band has toured the world with the likes of MUNICIPAL WASTE, DEATH ANGEL, NEVERMORE, DIAMOND HEAD, ENFORCER, and in the summer of 2013, were invited to play METALLICA's Orion Music + More festival in Detroit.
"Burning Fortune" was nominated for a Juno Award in 2012 while the video for the single "All Or Nothing" has been viewed over 460,000 times on YouTube to date and was featured in the video game "Rock Band".
