Within the Ruins has announced that the band will be debuting an EP titled "Omen" just months after the release of the full length "Invade." The new EP "Omen" will feature two new tracks and two cover songs - including Metallica’s "Fight Fire With Fire" and Kansas' "Carry On My Wayward Son." The EP will be released digitally and on 7" vinyl in April, 2011 and is being recorded at Dreadcore Studios in Michigan with Joshua Wickman.

Guitarist Joe Cocchi commented on the cover tracks: "Of course, Metallica was up there on the list, and after spending some time going through their discography we thought ‘Fight Fire With Fire’ would suit us best. It's a fun song, fast as fuck, and a bit challenging. It's also not as popular as a lot of their other songs. We wanted to choose a Metallica song that no one's really done before.

"The Kansas song was a whole different story as you can imagine. I don't think it's something that anyone would expect us to do, which is why we chose it. We spent a good amount of time arranging the song and attempting to add some new elements to it without completely 'butchering' it. It's definitely going to be a challenge for us, but that's the point after all. We're really excited about this project."

A video update of the band working on the new EP is also available at this location.
