Destroyer - _Destroyer_
by: Alain M. Gaudrault (not rated)
One word describes this recording: poor. Poor recording, poor vocals, poor musicianship, Texas-based Destroyer has it all. Basically, these guys just aren't ready for prime time. The vocalist can't carry a melody, and while the lyrics attempt to be somewhat profound, the accompanying music is far too simple and reminiscent of bad 80s metal. Tempo changes are just too forced, not fluid enough to make the song seem like a cohesive structure. While the guitar playing leaves much to be desired, I'm told that their 16-year old axeman was out all night before walking into the studio to put down the songs on tape. I don't buy it, even after listening to the live cut appended at the end to display his true skill. Not much else to say except "keep trying, guys."
