Rockshots Records Signs Tolkien Inspired RuinThrone For New Album “The Unconscious Mind Of Arda”
Rockshots Records announce their signing of Italian fantasy power metallers RuinThrone for the release of their new J.R.R. Tolkien-inspired album “The Unconscious Mind Of Arda” due out on (insert release date) to follow their debut album “Urban Ubris” and EP “Leaden Field”.
Set to create an interesting narrative world, RuinThrone composes very captivating musical sections that are supported by complex and progressive structures. The band explains:
“The album itself has been composed of stories inspired by Tolkien’s poems, his “Legendarium”. We hope the concepts we wrote can be “messengers” of reflection for our listeners, turning in a better awareness of their daily life. We focused on an alternative point of view of some stories written by Tolkien. We thought it would have been interesting to explore the mind of the main villains: Morgoth, the Witch-king, and Gothmog. The main concept is to develop a poem with no need for heroes. It’s a world populated by humanized characters creating a correspondence with the listener’s life.”
“The Unconscious Mind Of Arda” is mixed and mastered by Giuseppe Orlando (sound tech for Rhapsody of Fire) at the Other Sound Studios.
Singles, artwork, and track listing for “The Unconscious Mind Of Arda” will be revealed at future dates.
“We want the listener to be “lured” by the darkness and to become as a whole with it.”

Soon after, Giorgio Mannucci (keyboards), Nicolò De Maria (guitars), and Francesco Comerci (drums) joined the band. The sound of RuinThrone is inspired by German and American metal bands like Blind Guardian, Helloween, Iced Earth, and Nevermore, but they have their own distinguishable dark and modern character.
