Destrage detail new album, premiere song

Official press release: You can try to put Destrage in a box but you will never succeed. Words such as "progressive," "cinematic," "mathcore," "technical" and "groove-laden" could be thrown at them, but really the only one you need is Destrage, for they are in a category of their own making. This has never been more true than on A Means To No End, the fourth full-length from the Milan, Italy-based 5-piece, due out October 21st via Metal Blade Records. Riveting from start to finish, it leads the listener through an emotionally-charged labyrinth of complex yet catchy melody and muscle, following nobody's rules, and it stands out as one of the truly unique releases of 2016. For a first preview of A Means To No End, a lyric video (directed by The Jack Stupid) for the new single, "Symphony of the Ego," can be viewed now at - where the record can also be pre-ordered.

Destrage recorded A Means To No End at RecLab Studios in Milan, reuniting with their longtime collaborator Larsen Premoli, and his assistant Alex D'Errico. While tracking, at the suggestion of drummer Federico Paulovich, they brought percussionist Alessandro "Pacho" Rossi into the fold. Having entered into the writing process with no plans beyond simply wanting to write good music, the finished product - which is mixed by Steve Evetts and mastered by Alan Douches - is somewhat revelatory, and will certainly grab the attention of anyone exposed to it. Known for their powerful live shows, these tracks are sure to sound incredible when blasted from titanic speakers as the band take them to the masses. A Means To No End track listing: 01. A Means to No End 02. Don't Stare at the Edge 03. Symphony of the Ego 04. Silent Consent 05. The Flight 06. Dreamers 07. Ending to a Means 08. Peacefully Lost 09. Not Everything Is Said 10. To Be Tolerated 11. Blah Blah 12. A Promise, a Debt 13. Abandon to Random

I absolutely adore the long winded press statement trying ever so hard to describe this as mind blowing and trying so hard to swear that their sound isn't just in reality simply contrived, try hard, and merely rehashed zantacularCORE of 2004-2007(give or take) "tech" metalcore/mathcore "prog" bands like blood brothers, #12, fear before tmof, and new dep (specifically the commercial songs).Give it rest. I don't know who this is fooling, besides dudes younger than 21..I dunno fck you.
