Destroyed (New Version) by Snakedoctors: Review
The amazing band Snakedoctors has done a fantastic job of fusing the styles of classic rock, punk rock, alternative rock, and 90s rock. Anger, volume, nostalgia, and edge all characterize ‘Destroyed’.The band’s low, ominous voices fit well with the arrangement of this song.
There is no doubt that the song is brimming with a variety of exciting flavors; it features several different styles of rock, including grunge, metal, acid rock, classic rock, stone rock, and more. The music and the instrumentation start more calmly with a classic rock melody before being taken into a dystopian environment with hardcore sonics howling in the background. The growling vocals are an excellent example of destructive flair as they cut through the music’s apocalyptic euphoria. The inclusion of thunderous percussion rhythms and a variety of fuzzy riffs gives the song a monster aspect, making it soar with lava-like ferocity.
At the outset of the song, the songwriter or performer makes accusations against the lyric’s intended target, demanding that they “own up” to their wrongdoing. At higher points in the song, the distortion is done on purpose to emphasize the lyrical sentiments. For this updated version of the song, they collaborated with the notorious Nik Hughes (of Bush), and mastering was completed at Howie Weinberg Mastering. Fans are flocking to the new and improved edition because of its revitalized atmosphere and increased emphasis on feeling, and you should too.
