ok. the first time i heard JFAC was when doom had barely been released and i was like wow this is a really good band i wonder if they will last?!? well eventually Genesis came out and to tell you the truth im not sure what all the hype was about. it was rather bland besides a couple songs. well i heard ruination was coming out so i thought i would give it a try. wow im glad i did. i like this album even better than doom. these guys have definetly matured their sound over the years, and ruination definetly shows it. you can tell some real effrot was put into writing and recording this album. a must buy!
