Straight Out of Hell
Left In Ruins is a hard hitting Heavy metal band from Ossining NY. Formed in October 2004 it's original lineup had changed multiple times over their first 2 years, going through multiple singer's and various instrument configurations, eventually leading their Rhythm guitarist Luigi Cilento to sing for the band. In 2006 LIR recorded their 5 song demo, and finally broke into the world of heavy metal. Later in 2006 Rhythm Guitarist James Delisle joined the band to fill in for their bass player Mike Velasquez who was away at college at the time. When Mike returned, LIR gladly kept James in their ranks and further solidified their lineup, now with a heavy 3 guitar attack.
