Demo cassette from this killer new hardcore band out of Richmond... FFO Anti-Cimex, Shitlickers, Disclose.

Our take: Demo cassette from this new band out of Richmond featuring members of Firing Squad. However, there really isn’t much of a trace of Firing Squad’s USHC sound in Destruct, which is pure Scandinavian d-beat worship a la Anti-Cimex and Shitlickers. Of course there are a million bands going for some variation of that style, but for my money Destruct is one of the best I’ve heard. Seriously, this tape just absolutely rips for all 6 and a half minutes of its runtime. I’m not really sure what else to say about it as there’s not really anything terribly new about the Kawakami-esque vocals, Discharge-derived riffs, or blown-out (but still very dense and powerful) production, but every single last detail is executed absolutely perfectly. In that respect they remind me a lot of Impalers… while Destruct are a lot more straightforward in their approach, there’s a similar sense of every detail being labored over, but not so much that it sucks the life out of it. If you’re into what bands like Impalers, Sunshine Ward, and Fragment are doing I really wouldn’t hesitate to pick this up. It’s a real gem.
