Great write up from the AV Club that hits on precisely why you should (or perhaps shouldn’t) like this band.
Let me supplement briefly with a few more things these gents have going for them.
Big Drums (but not ‘80’s stupid big).
Riffs, intertwining, harmonized, double tracked and propulsive.
Ryan Allen’s challenge to real and imagined haters on ‘Werewolf Mask’— I do believe he actually WOULD love to ‘knock you out’.
The ‘Van Halen-ie’ flanger drums that kick off the album on ‘Leathal Sky’ (tip of the cap to the tasty verse guitar fill on this track as well).
Singing. Actual honest to god singing of songs that lesser accomplished folk would just scream and shout. There are dual leads. Backups. Harmonies. Good stuff. It’s what distinguishes this album from the few standard barer rockists like the everybody knows them Foo Fighters and the why doesn’t everybody know them Torche.
Overdrive. Distortion. Fuzz. The crispy, the thick, the feedback, the wooly, the shrieking.
And of course guitars.
-Destroy this Place plays tonight at PJs Lager House in Detroit and Saturday night at Quencher’s Saloon in Chicago.

It’s going to be weird when all the hipsters get old.

We revamped the lineup for the release show. All these bands are dope. Don’t show up late. Show up on time. Punk time sucks. Doors at 9 pm, Flint’s Braided Veins on at 9:30 sharp. So stoked for this!
