Moon Destroys (ex-Torche, Royal Thunder) announce debut
Official press release: Moon Destroys is the brainchild of guitarist Juan Montoya (ex-Torche) and drummer Evan Diprima (Brother Hawk, ex-Royal Thunder). Having written together in various configurations for over a decade, they now come together under the auspices of celestial forces with a new project to unveil their mesmerizing debut EP, Maiden Voyage. Listen to their first single alongside an in-depth interview with the band via Kerrang!, who describe the song as "a satisfying mixture of improvisational stoner metal and looming psych-rock" at this location. An experiment of truly galactic proportions, Moon Destroys blend heavy riffage with psychedelic flourishes and vivid imagery across two intricately designed centerpiece tracks; "Blue Giant" along with "Stormbringer" featuring the gorgeous vocals of Paul Masvidal (Cynic) and layers of synths from Bryan Richie (The Sword). Three instrumental bursts connect the pieces together to create one mind-melting trip across the cosmic highway. Maiden Voyage is an absorbing, dynamic and forward-thinking debut that explores the new frontiers of heavy music in the 21st century. Maiden Voyage will be released on March 27th on LP/Digital via Brutal Panda Records and is available for pre-order. Maiden Voyage track listing: 1. At The End Of Time 2. Blue Giant (feat. Troy Sanders) 3. The Shores Of The Cosmic Ocean 4. Stormbringer (feat. Paul Masvidal) 5. The Edge Of Forever
