DESTRAGE: (Milan metal)
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. 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. “We took our time with this record,” says guitarist Matteo Di Gioia. “We put aside the urge to impress, to rush, to jump from here to there like mad dogs. We challenged ourselves by not giving in to what we know we can do. We know how to eat fire, we know how to go wild, we know how to surprise, to shake, to disturb people. But this time we wanted to write a solid album. Not fireworks. Circus days are over.”
