Hailing from Edmonton, Canada, metallers Juliet Ruin are sharing their next single and second off their forthcoming EP “Dark Water” scheduled for release in 2021.
Entitled „Cosmic Vertigo”, the track is an inspiring and fun continuation of the band diving into heavier, djenty melodic metal. With low tuned guitars and vocals that will certainly shock old fans and draw in new ones as frontwoman Jess’ work in the screaming department is apparent throughout. This EP does not have any backing vocalists as its predecessor due to the massive improvements Jess made in her harsh vocal techniques.
Following the band’s 2019 album “Old Stardust, Love and Chaos”, Juliet Ruin‘s new EP will offer up a harder-edge, but catchy experience with lyrics that fans can shout in anger, but also lean on with its positive message as a whole.The band adds:
„This EP was born of the desire among the members to create a recording with what we consider the true lineup after having a member miss out on the OSLAC album. We were originally planning to just do one single but creativity got the best of us and became a four-song EP as the ideas were just unceasing. This is the freshest possible material from our minds with all songs written within 2020.”
Juliet Ruin is recommended for anyone who enjoys heavy and melodic metal with powerful vocals, especially those who already have The Agonist, Jinjer, and Killswitch Engage in rotation.

Juliet Ruin was formed in 2015 from the ashes of previous project Fiction of Fate with the desire to fuse metal sound with clean technical vocal stylings in a way that is both beautiful and beastly.
Clean and spirited, Juliet Ruin is comprised of Jess Ruin (lead vocals), Kent Geislinger – (guitar/backing vocals), Wesley Rands (guitar), Cody Reid (bass/backing vocals) and Jesse Bauman (drums); creating an original sound chock full of catchy hooks that convey a fresh and emotive feel to their heavy music.
Juliet Ruin took the obligatory first step with their debut self titled EP in 2017 and quickly made their way through the local scene, captivating audiences with high energy interactions that evoke emotion, vulnerability and power over various local gigs and appearing at several festivals over their flourishing career.
The next exciting step for Juliet Ruin was the release of their first full-length album ‘Old Stardust, Love and Chaos’ in 2019 that showcased more technical and heavy instrumentation, including some dabbling in low tuned 7 string guitars. The lead vocals also on that release increased in volume of screams and clean techniques with complimented pop-esque power vocals.
Fast-forwarding to 2020, the age of Covid, things have been tough, no touring, no fans to perform in front of, but not seeing it as a lost cause, Juliet Ruin came together to do what they do best, uniting their love for the music and writing new bangers for current fans and new ones to come. Juliet Ruin is very excited to be kicking off 2021 with a new EP “Dark Water” with the first single off the record and title track to be released during November 2020.

“Every band needs to find that element which connects them with a fanbase, and Juliet Ruin has done that early on in their career.” – V13
“Pre-album single “Spite” that features a Sprite logo is also reminiscent of “Cloud Factory” era Jinjer with an excellent vocal range on show. Blending riffs seamlessly with gravity defying leaps between sub-genres from classic Metal to Hard Rock to Metalcore, it’s a nice twist on the conventional approach.” – Metal Noise
“If you are into Halestorm, Jinjer, Killswitch Engage you are gonna fall in love with this group not just a bit. But madly and deeply! Grab a hold of this gem of a release on the 6th of September you aint gonna regret it , cos Juliet Ruin aint gonna “Ruin” ya day they are gonna make it !! ” – The Metal Gods Meltdown
“From hardrock, to metalcore and everythign in between, Juliet Ruin delivers a fun and interesting record with many sounds, attitudes and emotions.” – Heavy New York
“Juliet Ruin’s sound is comparable to a muddier version of Alexisonfire, with Ruin guiding the songs with her powerful voice while being backed up by Geislinger’s harsh screams and growls…. Juliet Ruin has been gaining more recognition after every concert with its single “Rogue Down” receiving a nomination at the Edmonton Music Awards.” – Vue Weekly (2017)
