Within The Ruins have announced that they will be releasing a brand new 7”/digital EP called Omen that will feature two brand new songs, and two cover songs by the bands Metallica and Kansas. Read on for the statement released by Joe Cocchi courtesy of Victory Records.
“The cover song choices as explained by guitarist Joe Cocchi, “Of course, Metallica was up there on the list, and after spending some time going through their discography we thought “Fight Fire With Fire” would suit us best. It’s a fun song, fast as fuck, and a bit challenging. It’s also not as popular as a lot of their other songs. We wanted to choose a Metallica song that no one’s really done before. The Kansas song was a whole different story as you can imagine. I don’t think it’s something that anyone would expect us to do, which is why we chose it. We spent a good amount of time arranging the song and attempting to add some new elements to it without completely “butchering” it. It’s definitely going to be a challenge for us, but that’s the point after all. We’re really excited about this project.”
