Six years since Finland’s Lie in Ruin’s last full-length (2014’s Towards Divine Death), “Floating in Timeless Streams” sees a more streamlined approach from the band. While “Towards Divine Death” clocked in at 71 minutes of brutality, “Floating in Timeless Streams” trims some of that excess at just over 42 minutes without losing any of the impact.
While “Floating…” continues to hone and highlight the band’s tremendous guitar work by Roni Ärling and Tuomas Kulmala, the band has added the extremely talented Jussi-Pekka Manner (Corpsessed) on drums. Roni Sahari’s (Desolate Shrine) vocals add the icing on the cake, making “Floating in Timeless Streams” the band’s magnum opus and a top highlight of 2020. Finnish death metal’s finest!
