Let's celebrate the worlds of arts & music
BOLT RUIN brings dark electronic music that fuses the energy of hardcore punk with the delicacy of classical music. Layers of field-recorded textures, grainy melodies and warped voices collide with fractured rhythms and thunderous basses.

BOLT RUIN writes the soundtrack to an overgrown industrial wasteland: drawing grey areas between cinematic beauty and harsh sceneries. One of release highlights is Psilentze: the soundtrack to a storyline that blends characters, scenes and objects to a point were the viewer can’t distinguish what’s happening in the past, present or future. Taped piano fragments pull back and forth while grasping onto a saturated beat. An oddly rearranged Bulgarian choir pushes the song further into transcending spheres. Pure magic. BOLT RUIN’s self-titled debut contains six compositions that span between quiet landscapes and areas struck by disaster, which you can discover on March 29 through Consouling Sounds’ electronic imprint Circuits.
