Coming from Milan/Italy, DESTRAGE represents a strong compromise between european melodic deathmetal, the best american thrash/hardcore act and rock’n’roll. An incredible mix of speed, core, sickness, alternative, and sometimes introspective tunes through melodic and killer songs. An absolute must for fans of In Flames, Slipknot, Soilwork, Nevermore, The Haunted, Trivium, Darkane, Protest The Hero, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Snot.
The story so near: In spring 2005 the young but very active combo recorded Code to Emptiness promo at Alpha and Oomega studio and began performing many shows around Italy. In spring 2006 DESTRAGE redefined his own style and recorded Self Id Generator promo produced by Ettore Rigotti from Disarmonia Mundi. Like many bands the time of changes came and lineup has been modified. Thanx to this promo DESTRAGE signed a japanese licence with Howling Bull Marketing Corporation (Sick Of It All, I Killed The Prom Queen, The Berzerker, Heaven Shall Burn, Hatesphere, Maroon, Fear My Thoughts, Skeletonwitch, Municipal Waste, Deicide etc..
