is both raw and angry. It may be only six songs, but it is a dynamic and intense listen from start to finish, and will leave you both satisfied yet yearning for more. The in-your-face aggression is exactly what you'd expect from and hope for in a passion project from the Leitrus.
"In the current state of a lot of heavy music circles, there is a lot of music that is made by bands (or their producers) just to cater to a specific audience," said Ryan Leitru. "It leads to a lot of safe and sometimes not very genuine music. It's easy to get jaded when you're too close to that type of world. One way to fight that and keep your passion for what you do is to go back to what first made you love music.
"With the Destroy and Rebuild EP, we tried to do that and as a result you can hear some of the influences from stuff that was happening when we were growing up in this music scene. Both in life and in music, a great way to move forward is to look back first, and learn from it."
