Destroy Destroy Destroy - Devour The Power Review
by Matt Hensch
Destroy Destroy Destroy must have been doing something right when they started making music. They had a successful debut album, toured with some of the biggest names in metal and even scored a record deal. So what happened? To bluntly put it, they made their second album titled "Devour The Power" and it sucks. "Devour The Power" contains annoying, bland music that sounds so much alike, you'd think the "repeat" button in your CD player was switched on and is eternally jammed.
The biggest buzzkill on this album is singer Bryan Kemp's awful voice. I've heard bad vocal performances before, but this is one of the worst. The mixture of screams and death growls he uses are just horrendous. The high pitched screams of Kemp are extremely annoying and aggravating. The use of this scream is used during a majority of the album and drags it straight to hell. Beside the screams, Kemp has this poor example of a death growl. His growls sound hazy and distorted, almost like he doesn't know how to do them right.
Destroy Destroy Destroy also fail in the musical category, but it isn't as bad as the vocals. The guitar work ranges from thrash riffs to generic melodic death riffing that usually repeat again and again until each song ends. The biggest dud is unfortunately done by the guitars due to the drastic similarities of all the riffs. All the riffs on all the songs are almost identical with each other. I honestly had a hard time remembering which song I was listening to because it all sounds the same. The drumming is the only positive aspect of the album. The drumming seems superior to the rest of the instrumental work when drummer Eric Brown does technical double pedal hits and time changes. His drumming is the only satisfying quality of this lackluster album.
Like I said before, "Devour The Power" isn't very good. These guys do have a decent stage gimmick, but musically speaking, they pretty much suck. Skip it.

Go put on your Korn CD you retard; this crap sucks. Destroy Destroy Destroy is just a chessy version of 3 Inches Of Blood and they don't even have a tenth of their talent, and I don't even listen to the damn band!
