◄| The Brutal Language / Press Quotes |►
"Over the years My Ruin have brought various new aspects to the genre known as ‘metal’, challenging what has been and what is to come in one fell swoop. Combining Tairrie’s roots in rap and hip-hop with the influence of spoken word style pieces of Lydia Lunch, the band have amalgamated these genres and created a new breed of metal. The Brutal Language takes on a more classic approach to metal and takes it on hard. Multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist Mick Murphy recorded not only the guitar parts on this album, but the drum parts also, and, if that wasn’t enough, produced the whole album too proving that talent really does seep from this guy’s pores. Tairrie’s raw, infallible vocals are yet to be matched for passion and brutality by any other band and this is clear in tracks such as ‘Spilling Open’ and ‘Metamorphosis’. Both also wielding the secret of searing riffs and driven drums that pierce through the silence and show the “wannabees” how real, heavy rock ‘n’ roll should sound. Taking no hostages, this album is the perfect heavy metal album; dirty, grungy, raw and relentless."

Cor, ain’t Tairrie B getting on a bit? Shouldn’t she have done an Idlewild by now and gone all REM? Shouldn’t time have healed all the wrongs? Shouldn’t she just… get over it? As if. Remember: this is Tairrie (fucking) B. She was always the most aggressive woman in the metal world during her time as the legendary frontwoman of Manhole *and *Tura Satana. And didn’t everyone know it. She is the reason Kittie ever happened. There can be no mistake that *My Ruin *is Tairrie B’s vehicle and, as such, it’s her emotion and vitriol that stand out. The anger that has been inherent in each and every record she has produced is more than definitely still here and if anything seems to have been focused further and more effectively. This may be due to the partial disbanding prior to recording where only Tairrie and her multi-faceted prime axeman *Mick Murphy *were left to record The Brutal Language. This unforeseen turn of events may have led to the tightest recording sessions she has ever undertaken. Grammy winner Nick Raskulinecz (Velvet Revolver, Ministry) mixes this unmistakably metal album with dark concision and furious fluency. The mood and method is epitomized during the album closer: a cover of a Mudhoney track, ‘Touch Me I’m Sick’. Brutalized and made even sludgier, the former grunge classic is screamed forth by Tairrie to an uncompromising backdrop of Sabbathy riffs and fiercely pounded drums. It is, indeed, a fitting climax as the album builds and builds in both quality and stature. ‘Silverlake’ is the first true standout track, featuring swinging siren guitar work, swathing over those famed unrepentant snarled vocals. Later, in _‘Summer Of Hell’ _we see the full extent of the anger unleashed upon the masses and even as the album edges closer to its finale, the unbridled violence never lets up. This is a clear testament to the meeting of minds and talent between Tairrie B and Mick Murphy. As a result, you and I are both rather glad that Ms.B has been thus far unable to iron out her differences with the rest of civilization.

You know how moths emerge from the cocoon as a beautiful butterfly? That's pretty much a good way to describe the metamorphosis of the Los Angeles powerhouse known as My Ruin. The band, which has always been untouchable live, has had good records. Good, not great. The slate is completely wiped clear with the release of The Brutal Language. The unrelenting chainsaw sound which usually strikes with gale wind force is intact but has been tunneled into a more potent weapon this time out. Something has changed in the camp of My Ruin, resulting in undoubtedly the best record of their career and one of the best of any of the year. While the face of My Ruin has always been the larger-than-life persona of vocalist and founder Tairrie B, musically the band has been under the direction of guitarist Mick Murphy. And on The Brutal Language, he has turned in a performance that should turn heads. During the recording of the record, the band's former rhythm section up and quit. Undaunted, Murphy, who also assumed the producer's title, erased their tracks and laid down bass and drums as well as contributing the awesome guitar that he is slowly becoming known for. He has been called "the best kept secret in rock and roll" but that should become a thing of the past as this record gets heard. Starting with his sound, which summons all the best elements of Tony Iommi, he lays down a crunchy bedrock so thick you could walk on it. Then you have to notice all the subtle changes he's incorporated this time out. There are little instrumental breathers for a bar or two which really supercharge the dynamics of each song. As well, he has begun playing more solos, which are real welcome to these ears. Not to be overshadowed is the aforementioned Miss B, who casts a long shadow on her own. Known for her mega-charged full-on vocal delivery, Miss B has learned that a little variety can be more powerful than the one gear she has used in the past. Previous works would find Tairrie just bowling over everything in her way, to be the last one standing. On The Brutal Language she has opted to use some different styles. Don't fret if you think that means she has mellowed, however. She still mostly slices and dices the words that spew from her arsenal of poison-tipped weapons. To any fan of My Ruin, this is absolute nirvana. The Brutal Language has the band digging down deep and pulling out their best effort to reach a whole new level."

"The full sound of this band from Tairrie B (Tura Satana/Manhole) really is what invites listeners in during tracks like “Touch Me I’m Sick”. Everything is given a bass-heavy luster that allows the swampy-rock of the band to shine through. Couple that with sizzling guitar lines and arrangements that are similar in style to “Deliverance”-era Corrosion of Conformity, and the band has some serious positives to win people over with their “The Brutal Language”. The ability of the band to bludgeon listeners with their brutal guitar/bass attack (as such is present during “Summer of Hell”) is just one of their attack; equally present are the ever-more-chaotic and driven guitar solos as were present in “Touch Me I’m Sick”. The band gets an infusion of punk structuring during “Summer of Hell”, where a simplifying of their sound really allows listeners to tune in easier. “Cold Hands, Warm Heart” is really innovative in the sense that the guitars take precedence over the vocals; in fact, the roles of the two seem to be switched. That is to say that the guitar is the more narrative track during the track, while the screaming present is in much more of an instrumental role. The ability of My Ruin to move into different genres is really what makes the disc such a success; for example, “The Devil Walks” vacillates between the dirty-metal of bands like Superjoint Ritual while still maintaining a fire for the seventies rock of Led Zeppelin and Kansas. The result is not some weakly-functioning Frankenstein’s monster, but really something that shows individuals that My Ruin is really able to pull off whatever they’d like. By far, the work that My Ruin does when they are confronted with repetition is the strongest fare on the disc. By not showing any weakness – by being confident, the band can succeed where countless bands have failed. “The Brutal Language” is the strongest disc I’ve heard, in an all-around sense. The production allows the band’s already-formidable instrumentation to shine, while the arrangement of “The Brutal Language” is continually shi fting but never dubious. The tracks may not be proper for average rock-radio, but place them in a forum where metal-minded viewers reside (Uranium, Headbanger’s Ball) and watch the sales of this disc increase into the stratosphere. This is metal, pure and simple and its reluctance to fit neatly into a specific genre makes it endearing." - 7.5 // NEUFUTUR.COM
"This CD was my introduction to My Ruin and I have to say that this definitely a kickass release. The music is heavy and the vocalist kicks your ass with her well crafted lyrics and brutally passionate voice. They have an infectious blend of punk, rock, metal, and attitude. I liked the way the CD started out with a spoken litany and then afterwards you get sonically assaulted. They do a cover of Mudhoney's "Touch Me I'm Sick" which ends the disc. All in all the record has a damn infectious groove to it and you'll probably find yourself playing air drums or air guitar. It's that good." - ROCKNETWEBZINE.COM
