Ruiner was a hardcore punk band that came out of my hometown of Baltimore, Maryland and man were they fucking good.  One of the greatest pure melodic hardcore bands I've ever listened to, and I had the privilege of seeing their final performance.  It was truly an amazing set that had bands like Black SS, Title Fight and Magrudergrind (idk why I thought it was Tigers Jaw) playing before them.  During their set the electricity went out and they played the rest of their songs acoustic and in the dark, you fucking had to be there.  Anyway, if you don't already have this album then you are missing out big time.
