The Destro Premiere 2 New Songs Online
September 17, 2009
Dallas, TX’s The Destro had two for Tuesday as they premiered two new songs from their forthcoming full-length 'Harmony Of Discord' earlier this week. The track "Persistence Of Ignorance" will premiere on Metal Sucks.net while "Justifiers Of Malice" will run on the band’s own myspace page. 'Harmony Of Discord' is the band’s sophomore album on Ironclad Recordings and drops on October 13th. Speaking on the new album guitarist Nick Emde said “On writing this new album we threw away multiple riffs going on in songs, we cut out any soloing and it’s twice as heavy as our other material and totally focused.” “As a guitarist I’m influenced by Napalm Death as they are completely fast, completely brutal with no filler but it leaves you satisfied.”

Signed by Trevor Phipps of Unearth for his Ironclad Recordings, the band released their debut 'As The Coil Unwinds' in 2007. The album received praise from the metal elite including national publications such as Outburn who said “The band harkens back in time when renegades like Metallica wrote grand masterpieces of metal compositions… pure metal sans the trends and flashy gimmickry.” The usually reserved Decibel Magazine whole heartily concurred saying “The Destro nailed it pretty spectacularly from the percussive drum production and groove-heavy song tempos to the raw-throated vocals and squealy drop-tuned guitar riffs.”

The band has just kicked off a U.S. Tour with Arsonists Get All The Girls and It Dies Today from Sept 10th through October 19th. Dates and info at: www.myspace.com/thedestro.

Norma Jean and Horse the Band have been a huge influence on our musical careers and we now get to share the stage with them every night. The Chariot's new album is amazing and we are pumped to see them with their incredible live show that we have heard so much about. We feel this package has a great mix of bands and everyone is bringing their own flavor to the table, so make sure you do not miss out.

The Destro Announce Sophomore Release, Tour
September 2, 2009
Metallic hardcore unit, The Destro, announced their sophomore full-length, 'Harmony Of Discord', will be released on Oct 13th.

“On writing this new album we threw away multiple riffs going on in songs, we cut out any soloing and it’s twice as heavy as our other material and totally focused” says guitarist Nick Emde. “As a guitarist I’m influenced by Napalm Death as they are completely fast, completely brutal with no filler but it leaves you satisfied.”

Speaking on the new material Emde said, ”The new songs exorcise a lot of demons for the band. Inbetween albums we just had a lot of trying experiences including deaths of family members, deterioration of personal relationships and general homelessness. Those negative emotions and experiences went straight to our writing to the point where I can honestly say playing these new songs completely release all those feelings for me.”

Signed by Trevor Phipps of Unearth for his Ironclad Recordings, the band released their debut, 'As The Coil Unwinds', in 2007. The album received praise from the metal elite including national publications such as Outburn who said “The band harkens back in time when renegades like Metallica wrote grand masterpieces of metal compositions… pure metal sans the trends and flashy gimmickry.” The usually reserved Decibel Magazine whole heartily concurred saying “The Destro nailed it pretty spectacularly from the percussive drum production and groove-heavy song tempos to the raw-throated vocals and squealy drop-tuned guitar riffs.” Following the release was a never ending series of live shows and tours

The band has just confirmed a U.S. Tour with Arsonists Get All The Girls and It Dies Today that will run from Sept 10th through October 19th.

Dates and more general info on The Destro at can be found at www.myspace.com/thedestro.

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 2001
HOME TOWN: Buffalo, NY
MEMBERS:
Nick Brooks (vocals)
Mike Hatalak (guitar)
Chris Cappelli (guitar)
Steve Lemke (bass)
Nick Mirusso (drums)

The Queen City no longer does its moniker justice, but its degradation served as the unifying factor for It Dies Today. Born and bred amidst the Buffalo hardcore scene, IDT formed in August of 2001. The love child of current vocalist Nick Brooks, guitarist Chris Cappelli and then guitarist Steve Lemke, they soon began spreading their melodic gospel to the tri-state area. They created an addictive blend of brutal riffs and punishing breakdowns combined with an eastern sensibility for dark melodies that served as the undertone to their hybrid sound. The band released the 'Forever Scorned' EP that soon became a hot commodity on the word of mouth that carried it across the country well before the dying conversion van that would become their new home. Soon enough they set out upon an eagerly awaited and equally well received US tour.Riding on the support of the underground notoriety they had built, they embarked on a full U.S. tour, joining them at various points were: Between the Buried and Me, Alexisonfire, Taken and Undying. Although not the towering masses of brutality and breakdowns that had been expected to accompany their sound, the energy alone of Nick Brooks, the stage presence of Chris Cappelli and Steve Lemke, and the precision of drummer Nick Mirusso served to create an energetic live show that soon cemented their image.Following some changes in the lineup, Steve Lemke moved to bass and guitarist Mike Hatalak completed the line up. Having finally achieved their dream cast of players, IDT began to refine and structure their sound into the brutal lullaby it has become. Combining the sensibility of a younger band that has grown up on hardcore, with the fusing of haunting choruses and sweeping melodies, coupled with the lyrical message of social decay and moral disintegration. The result - a sound to call their own with a message void of the egotism that is so prevalent in modern music.A band started when most of its members were merely 16, It Dies Today has grown and become the driving force in the lives of these now slightly older and wiser troubadours. Having finally achieved their direction and sound, they will soon release a full-length album on Trustkill Records and follow with year long tour support. Hell bent on not only playing the music they love but also living their lives around supporting their craft. It Dies Today will no longer be the band you've been hearing about, rather the band you'll be hearing plenty of, and they can't wait to show you why.
