Love Me Destroyer started when local legends, Pinhead Circus(BYO Recording
artist), called it quits. The band has overcome so much adversity over the past
few years to become the band they are today. Lineup changes and personnel
problems almost ended the band, but as the saying goes, the things that don’t
kill us make us stronger. There is no question that Love Me Destroyer are
stronger than ever and are poised to take on the world and the music industry
with the release of “The Things Around us Burn”.
Love Me Destroyer’s new release is going to be an experiment for Suburban
Home as we plan to completely re-write the rules of marketing with this
album. No more expensive publicists that posture enthusiasm for bands they
care nothing about. No more college radio pushes geared at music directors
who only care about what Pitchfork Media tells them they should like. Every
marketing dollar will instead be re-directed towards the people that actually
care about music, the fans. Along with that idea, the Love Me Destroyer album
will be priced at 10.98, something we think just make sense considering the
music market landscape. Expect exciting things from Suburban Home and
Love Me Destroyer. – Virgil Dickerson (Suburban Home Records)

I got into the first Love Me Destroyer cd (that is absent from this site) quite some time ago. I got into Rise Against (when they were still on FAT) and this band around the same time. I knew Rise Against would make it big after hearing their albums, but I always liked the LMD cd I got too. The first LMD cd was pretty low fi sounding and raw as nails, but I liked that about it. Plus there were some great lyrics This cd has a much more vibrant but still lethal sound to it.
F.U.I.Q just explodes like TNT and Not If You Were the Last Sinner on Earth is full of so much vitriol and is just seething the whole way. "Feed me my pills. It's a daily dose of inspiration so I can be on my feet when judgement comes." Things Around Us Burn has a really strong delivery the whole song too.
Bleed it Now hits you in the face like a cinder block and flows seamless into I went to Las Vegas. I thought it was all one song. I get so amped up hearing those. Color of the Grave is strong too and actually starts with a really filthy voice mail...well it is continued from the end of the last song. Anyways if you want some high energy hardcore, you have to pick this one up. You won't be disapointed.

I just heard of these guys recently and have to say buying the album isn't disappointing. They kinda have a Hot Water Music feel to them in certain songs, but I kinda like those guys too. I'm glad I bought this cd.
