Above the ruins
Above the Ruins were an English band fronted by Tony Wakeford.
After being asked to leave Death In June, Tony Wakeford formed Above the Ruins. None of the group's releases name any of its members, but it has been suggested that Liz Grey, Ian Read and Gary Smith (of No Remorse) were also involved.
Above the Ruins released one EP, entitled Songs of the Wolf. The album's sound was similar to the dark post-punk of early Death In June. The group also contributed a track to the British National Front benefit album No Surrender vol 1 alongside the Nazi groups Skrewdriver and Brutal Attack. Wakeford has stated that he has had no connection or interest in such ideas for 20 or more years.
He formed Sol Invictus shortly after this project was abandoned.
