new metal band with three bassists and no guitarist

Yesterday we received an email from a member of Winston-Salem, NC metal band Extinction Level Event. Obviously, we get a fair number of submissions from unknown metal bands, most of which we don't have the time to investigate. We decided to give this one a look though because the band's lineup features three bassists, a drummer, and no guitarist.

I've heard of two bassists and no guitarist (anybody remember Cop Shoot Cop?), but three bassists? Could be really stupid, really great, or really mediocre. Decide for yourself as you listen to the band's new single "Destroyer" below. You can also check them out on Facebook.

UPDATE: Today the band debuted a second single, which you can check out below.

I was kind of hoping to hear some leads or something but they just played the same thing all together...what's the point of 3 if they're all playing the same thing?

Cop Shoot Cop were at least pushing boundaries and both experimental and creative… This on the other hand is nonsense that doesn't even deserve exposure. There are so many good unsigned bands you never give the light of day but promote this garbage?

This should be much heavier and much more talented then maybe I'd care. I don't understand with three bass players ,for a metal band, how it would not be heavy.

Also I agree with the leads part. Pretty dull to just play together the whole time.
