Berserker IV Feature - Fell Ruin

A combination of black metal, progressive metal, and heavy, grinding doom, Detroit's own Fell Ruin is a band you definitely need to check out! The band features Jeff McMullen on bass, Rob Radtke on guitar, August Krueger behind the drums and Brian Sheehan on vocals. They just released their sophomore album entitled To The Concrete Drifts. You can give it a listen below and then pick up a physical copy at Berserker this weekend. 

We had a chance to ask the guys in Fell Ruin our batch of Berserker questions. Read ahead to see what they had to say then head up to The Pike Room on Saturday night to see them on stage.
