Destruction 412: Destruction 412

Hardcore and punk collide with nü-metal on this self-titled five-track EP from Pittsburgh's Destruction 412. Like the industrial city that berthed the band, Destruction 412 belches plenty of pollution into the sonic atmosphere. Rob Heil's vocals reek of toxic thrash, and he rages through "Brutality" and "Downfall" while incorporating clean and gruff vocals on the progressive and graphic "Crimson Art." (Too bad Heil's since left the band, although I've no idea how new guy Josh Finfrock sounds.) While "Crimson Art" hints at the direction in which Destruction 412 should head on its forthcoming full-length CD, closing track "Saddam" proves this quintet isn't comprised of a bunch of dumb punks. Set against a backdrop of soundbites from George W., the song grooves dark and deep, with lyrics predicting the end of the world as a result of "Desert plague/Spreading fear/Assimilation fueled by hatred/Posing threat manipulation." Hmm.

Track Listing:
1) Beggar (3:57)
2) Brutality (3:44)
3) Crimson Art (4:43)
4) Downfall (3:23)
5) Saddam (3:33)
Total Time: 19:22
