My Ruin is Tairrie B.'s newest project. Tairrie got her start as a rapper and went on to be in bands Manhole and Tura Satana. She is joined on this project by a host of musicians. This first disc by the band is a great release that covers a lot of varied musical territory. The underlying focus of the music is gothic in nature, but the sound runs the gamut from rap to techno to electronic to solid modern metal (many times in the course of one song). If you are a fan of exciting experimental, hard-edged music, this may be a great disc for you to pick up. One word of warning, though, much of the lyrical content is graphic and adult in nature, and many of the references are quite anti-Christian. So, if those types of lyrics are objectionable to you, you might want to think twice before making the purchase.
