Man Will Destroy Himself isn’t a hard band to define, really: crusty, grinding punk of the greatest degree. Pure adrenaline soaked in gasoline and set on fire. I didn’t even know the band put out a new record until yesterday and I haven’t stopped listening to it since. It’s that fucking good. Filthy aggression and heavier than Mjölnir, this band’s fast, brutal approached to grinding punk is one that rivals all. I figured if I was going to listen to it so much, I might as well tell you all how it is. I will now begin my review of this monumental motherfucker. Check it.
“Circle The Drain” opens up with a nice punk riff instantly accompanied by bombarding blasting. The vocals are old school shrieks that do nothing but please my earholes. I cannot help myself from headbanging instantaneously. Fantastic, absolutely fantastic. Up next is “Catalyst” which has a much more straight-up grind vibe. Chaotic, catchy riffing and punishing blast beats make this track a winner in my book. I love these vocals. This track clocks in at just under three minutes, but it’s a fucking killer regardless. “Masks” opens with a sludgy vibe that soon bursts into a grinding monster. Insane riffing and chaotic drumming once more take the reins and kick my ass. Nothing but brutal fucking punk here and I love it. I don’t see how this could get any better.
