Dubbed "The Most Extreme Tour of the Year," the fifth annual Summer Slaughter Fest ends its 27-date run with a final stop in Dallas this week. How merciful.

Within the Ruins, a five-piece from Westfield, Massachusetts, offers a fusion of shattering breakdowns and elite instrumentation with spastic tempo changes and a touch of machine gun-like drums. The quintet is signed to Victory Records (the label that first signed Taking Back Sunday), and while they don't boast the fan base of Whitechapel or Black Dahlia, they are steadily climbing the ranks on a brand of metalcore akin to the sounds of A Different Breed of Killer and Wretched.
But there's plenty more where they came from. Darkest Hour, Six Feet Under, Dying Fetus, Oceano, Fresh God Apocalypse and Power Glove round out the bill.
