Voice Of Ruin just issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band's long-time drummer:
"After more than 7 years (since the beginning of the band), our dear drummer Olivier has decided to put an end to his journey in Voice of Ruin. It came as a shock to us, especially to me, as we founded the band together with Nils in late 2008.
"As of today, Olivier has different goals than the rest of the band and he choose to step down rather than preventing the project to move on. As you can imagine, being in a band like Voice Of Ruin takes quite some time and requires a lot of sacrifices and dedication. We respect his decision as band members and above all as FRIENDS! More...

Voice Of Ruin has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band's guitarist:
"After a bit less than 3 years, more than 60 shows, 3 tours, 1 album and 1 EP, our dear guitarist Tony has decided to leave the band. The only reason that prompted him to take his decision is a lack of time to push this project further.
"Tony has a full-time time day job that requires him to be at work 2 week-end per month. Considering the amount of shows we play, he doesn’t have any free weekends left to rest and spend time with his family. Further more, he’s living far away from us and in order to rehearse with us, he has to drive back and forth for more than 3 hours.
"Despite the fact that we will miss his pretty face, we totally understand his decision... those are rough times for Voice of Ruin as we are loosing our 2 guitar players in less than 3 months…but hey that's life!
"We wish Tony all the best with his musical ventures, and be assured that we will stay in contact and maintain this friendship that we've nurtured during the last three years! Be sure to catch us for our last show with him:
27.06.2015 – Usine, Geneva (CH) w/ Dagoba + Benighted
04.07.2015 – Burning Q Festival, Freißenbüttel (DE) w/ Cripper
"Now the good news is that we’re lucky in our misfortune (again). We've already found a great guy to step in Tony's shoes: his name is Morti. He’s an excellent musician and has already a lot of experience in the music scene as he’s playing guitar in a great band called Deus Ex Machina.
"It’s quite exciting to start a new adventure with a new lineup. We can’t wait to start recording our new album and be back on stage in the end of august with fresh material. More information soon!" More...
After releasing the "Consumed" EP (still streaming here), Voice Of Ruin has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band's guitar player:
"After a bit more than 6 years (since the beginning of the band), our dear guitarist Nils has decided to stop the adventure. When he announced that he'd taken this decision it first came as shock to us, especially to Olivier and I, as we've been playing together for more than 10 years. Nils would like to explore other kinds of music and go back to playing bass as he once did.
"We respect his decision as band members and above all as FRIENDS! We wish him all the best with his musical ventures, and be assured that we will stay in contact and maintain this friendship that we've nurtured for so many years! Be sure to catch us for our last show with him:
08.05.2015 - Festival de Chair et d'Acier, Mâcon (FR)
23.05.2015 - Usine a Gaz, Nyon (CH)
10.06.2015 - Chat Noir, Genève (CH)
"But the good news is that we've already found a great guy as his replacement: his name is Nicolas and we've known him for many years. Nicolas is an excellent musician and has already a lot of experience in the music scene. He has played with bands like Requiem For Sirens, The Fetch, Sybreed (as a fill-in for a 2010 European tour) and he manages a music agency called Black Bear Agency. Our first show with him will take place on the 27th of Junes 2015 at the Usine of Geneva as support of Dagoba and Benighted. It's going to be massive!" More...

You too can get "Morning Wood" today in Switzerland and on May 5th elsewhere via Tenacity Music. Digital copies and physical pre-orders are available at the Voice of Ruin Bandcamp page here.
Voice of Ruin was born in 2008, driven by the common desire of five Swiss farmers who dreamt of leaving the family farm and becoming rock stars. Hungry for success and recognition, the five strapping young lads abandoned their shovels and harvesters to take on different type of instruments, with the goal of becoming icons of sex, alcohol, and rock’n’roll (or horny farmer metal).
Between two harvests and after a first EP, the band released its first album in 2011 through Heimathome Records. Voice of Ruin quickly sell 666,666 copies of this release, which allows the quintet to make a lot of cash and spend it on alcohol and women, like bankers, whilst playing a series of shows in Switzerland and France.
However, times are tough and cows and hop don’t make enough money to sustain their extreme and rock’n’roll lifestyle. The band is hence obliged to record second album "Morning Wood" in order to fill the coffers. Distributed by Irascible in Switzerland and Plastic Head in Europe, this new opus will be released on Tenacity Music and will allow the band to tour Japan in spring 2014 with The Black Dahlia Murder and Fleshgod Apocalypse.
