Must Destroy – Underdog

Studio projects can accidently grow into some of the best things, like the Foo Fighters. So when Arno of Generation Graveyard and Szymek who is now in Mortad started one that grew into a band it has to be good.  The line-up has changed but the music and the concept of Must Destroy remain the same.  Must Destroy are a black metal band that much like the evil rise of the Furbee have grown more than anyone expected.

Must Destroy

The band have several tracks, one of which is Underdog.  Underdog embodies Must Destroy as a powerful and sinister riff climbs over impressive drumming in the race to dive down your ears.  Generation Graveyard vocalist Max also takes over the duties here and delivers searching and angry vocals.  Fusing vocal and combat clips in with their music Must Destroy possess your ears for over six minutes as the song grows and grows.  The lyrics are littered with references to drugs, paranoia and uprising as Must Destroy explore the darkness.

Must Destroy play metal straight up, and have created a dark and powerful sound.  Different to all the bands this projects members have come from Must Destroy maintains the same high level of playing.  If you enjoy any of the bands that make this project you will enjoy it without hearing a repeat of their other work.  Hear the track on their Myspace.

Generation Graveyard

Living your music takes a lot of skill if you’re a band that combine hardcore, metal and punk.  You have to drink hard, play hard and even play your songs.  The songs have to sound dominating live and equally speaker tormenting.  Generation Graveyard have all of this.  Not only are Generation Graveyard finishing the mixing and recording of their new record, they’re also playing shows with local boys Artemis Redeemer and the mighty 69 Eyes.  

Track three on the new record, The Empty gives you no time to prepare.  Pounding drums and a riff that sounds more like a call to arms come at you instantly before you’ve even taken your finger back off the play button.  This storm of sound is added to by dark and snarling vocals.  Starting with the command ‘Come on’ they mirror the tracks tone perfectly.  Swept along by The Empty Generation Graveyard fill you with a sense of contempt towards daily monotony and entrapment.  You’ll feel angry.  Angry enough to break the spell and get on it.  As the track rolls into its last minute an increased sense of energy and intensity takes over before The Empty winds to a close.

Generation Graveyard

Generation Graveyard explore the punk side of their nature with Deleatist.  Sounding like a sonic punch to the face Deletist has a frantic and desperate determination to it.  Alongside ADHD based drumming and a cutting riff the vocals charge down your ears on a sea of distortion urgency.  As the chant of ‘Deleatist‘ goes up it is clear this track will smash venues and radicalise audiences.  Deleatist drives the listener to rise up and be free and fills them fury and energy, to y’know just help it along.  This isn’t a song to just hear.  Deleatist makes the listener an active and empowered participant.  At it’s core it is build on integrity and values.  Get Deleatist now from Generation Graveyard’s Bandcamp.

Generation Graveyard make music to react to.  Driven by core values these songs are the work of a band with a purpose.  The fusion of styles gives Generation Graveyard’s music even more appeal.  Watch Generation Graveyard.  They are producing music that not only sounds interesting and has a purpose, but needs to be heard because it’s just good!  Click the link to GIGgle Pics to see more information and photos from a recent Canterbury gig.
