Now You Can Hear Puig Destroyer

Earlier in the week I had briefly mentioned in a Blog Kiosk a new music project underway that includes Riley Breckenridge of Thrice.  This new band would be called Puig Destroyer and it includes other grindcore musicians such as Mike Minnick (Curl Up & Die) on vocals, Ian Miller and Jon Howell (Kowloon Walled City).

Well, the first track of the 5-song EP has just been released on and it's everything I expected.  BTW, the song is called "One Man, Five Tools", and the voice of Vin Scully makes a brief appearance at the end.

If you don't already know, grindcore isn't for the faint of heart.  It is the an extreme hardcore sound.  From a wikipedia description:
It draws inspiration from some of the most abrasive-sounding music genres – including extreme metal, industrial music, noise music and the more extreme varieties of hardcore punk. Grindcore is characterized by a noise-filled sound that uses heavily distorted, down-tuned guitars, grinding overdriven bass, high speed tempo, blast beats, and vocals which consist of incomprehensible growls, or high-pitched shrieks.
Yeah... So, it's definitely an acquired taste.  The 18-year old version of myself would have loved this stuff.  20+ years later, I'm not so sure.  Nevertheless, it had my head bobbing, banging and throbbing like I was the long-haired Hessian of my youth.

Man-O-Live... To be young again.

Go to this link to hear it.  Be sure to turn up the volume to get the full effects.  Really!... You won't regret it!  Oh, and here are the lyrics:

One Man, Five Tools
speed power, fielding contact
a cannon for an arm

one man, five tools

speed power, fielding contact
a cannon for an arm

one man, five tools

fuck the walk, destroy the ball
crush smash kill... annihilate

one man, five tools

Here is the song below:
