My Ruin are a Los Angeles-based hard rock band fronted by Tairrie B (former vocalist of Tura Satana and Manhole and solo rapper). Released on September 18th, 2000, the album was best described by Tairrie herself during an interview for Barcode webzine in 2001: “With A Prayer Under Pressure we give you the antithesis to the rap-rock Limp Bizkit generation of desensitized, copycat, transparent bands being shoved down America's throat”. Co-produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Danzig), the LP included fourteen tracks of material which out-weighed My Ruin’s debut offering in every way. The band introduced an immensely heavier sound, lowering the guitar tone and decreasing the amount of spoken/recited vocals in favor of full-on, gut-wrenching screaming. At the same time the music gained a lot of diversity, thanks to Mick’s stoner-influenced style of playing. Lyrically, Tairrie ventured further into the dark side, broadening her horizons with careful studies of social issues. “Sanctuary” stands out as a reality check for “true” believers, exposing the frailty of their faith. “Letter To The Editor” deals with dishonesty among members of the music press. “Beauty Fiend” and “Stick It To Me” both criticize the shallow Hollywood style of life, which ultimately leads to self-destruction. The album also features a guest performance by Jessicka of Jack Off Jill on “Miss Anne Thrope”, as well as two brilliant cover versions of “Do You Love Me” by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and “My War” by Black Flag. New digipak edition is limited to 1000 copies. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on a golden disc.
