Above the Ruins - 1986 - Songs of the Wolf
Above the Ruins was Tony Wakeford's band after parting with Death in June and before forming Sol Invictus. Raw, dark driving rock, with little hint of the folk style to come.
Fans of Sol Invictus: Get This!!! A fine compliment to the Against The Modern World material, in fact "Make Us Strong" and "Under Western Skies" wouldn't have sounded so out of place on that first Sol LP. Musically, this sounds like a cross between early DIJ, Joy Division and early Sol Invictus. Lyrically, more "political" than Tony's later works---though I often sense that political ideas remain, subtly or inadvertently, in some of Tony's later work. (The words to the song "Waiting" would, oddly enough, show up years later on NON's In The Shadow of The Sword LP!!!) Source : http://strangefortune.com/cd.php?id=1 thanks DeadMessiah for this one !!!
