Roll The Dice are back with their fourth full-length album, Born To Ruin. The Swedish duo, consists of Malcolm Pardon and Peder Mannerfelt, both established musicians in their own right. Pardon's background producing scores for film and television is reflected in Roll The Dice's cinematic aesthetic, while Mannerfelt's acclaimed third solo album Controlling Body landed in 2016 and follows on from his acclaimed work as producer for Fever Ray. In 2013, the pair contributed to the Blanck Mass-curated score for the Belgian horror movie The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears, while in 2016 they composed part of the score and end credit theme for the drama series The Last Panthers. The duo have performed live at Sonar, Unsound, Primavera, ATP, Mutek, Norberg, Roskilde, and Semibreve festivals as well as alongside an exclusive orchestral setting at Norrlands Opera. Compared to the epic, sweeping compositions of the duo's earlier records, Born To Ruin is stripped to the bone -- a collection of concise, sharply evocative, jazz-infused music that's more smoky basement than orchestral hall. Following the stately orchestral explorations of 2014's Until Silence, the music here is lithe, hollow and furious, evoking a fractured world of economic and political instability. Ten tracks exploring burningly intense, psychedelic and romantic krautrock, ambient, and rhythmic noise themes -- A moving, widescreen electro-acoustic sound design. RIYL: Colin Stetson, The Haxan Cloak, John Carpenter, Deathprod, Willie Burns. Mastered and cut to vinyl by Pole at Scape Mastering.
