THE DESTRO To Release 'Harmony Of Discord' In October

Texas' THE DESTRO will release its sophomore album, "Harmony Of Discord" on October 13 via Ironclad Recordings. According to a press release, the band "possess the aggression and directness or hardcore but it's not metalcore; they have the thick sludge toned riffage and big bottom groove of metal while tossing off any flashy leads or instrumental obliqueness that have dominated that genre of late."

"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."

Regarding the new material, Emde states, "In between 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."

"Harmony Of Discord" track listing:

01. Justifiers Of Malice
02. Thorns Of Truth
03. Pestilence Of Deceit
04. Angel Killer
05. Mouth Of The Heretic
06. Persistence Of Ignorance
07. Dead Eyes Divide
08. Overcome (The Flame)
09. Face Down In Regret

Signed by Trevor Phipps of UNEARTH to his Ironclad Recordings, the band released its 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 DESTRO has just confirmed a U.S. tour with ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS and IT DIES TODAY from September 10 through October 19.
