Saints of Destruction
Pennsylvania - SAINTS OF DESTRUCTION debut single “Dream of Pain” via The Label Group with INgrooves
is a shot of ‘balls to the wall’ rock! The track “Dream of Pain”
solidifies a heavy sound; while slinging the grunge sludge undertones up
into your eardrums. Saints of Destruction’s “Dream of Pain” level up a
complex sound that carries its own identification. Yet at the same time,
the song also slays a sound that feels familiar when listening - an
intimate sound where their influences can be heard. Saints of
Destruction have truly created their own formation of solid sound rock
within “Dream of Pain” and their coming creations are to be kept an eye
on for the future of more exciting tracks.
wrote "Dream of Pain" and two other songs the first night we got in the
rehearsal room in September. The verse and chorus came out
instantaneously with the lyrics pretty much intact. This was all
pre-pandemic and we all looked back to September saying oh shit we wrote

it was loosely written about a totalitarian turned regime. Essentially
about two idiotic sides fighting while zombies sneak in and wipe out

the slow ones, not World War Z." - Saints of Destruction
Next up is another single and a 5-song EP titled All Hail The Saints dropping end of summer.

of Destruction formed in September 2019. Comprised of good friends Marc
Adam Kahn, Brian Radick, Kevin Somerville, and Chris Cwikla, the Saints
are bringing unapologetic, hard-driving rock n roll back on the scene.
Influenced by bands like Van Halen, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, Jane's Addiction, Nirvana, and Soundgarden,
the Saints of Destruction became fed up with the monotonous,
auto-tuned, squashed mainstream rock of today and decided to go a
different direction. With lyrical content consisting of anti-pop culture
references, the Saints highlight ideas central to taking a stand
against excessive media and political control, social and celebrity
elitism, compliance culture and general conformity that is strangling us
all right now.
n roll has lost its antagonistic flare. It's supposed to be about youth
rebelling against the system. Not taking the safe move and conforming
to lame corporate standards. The Saints of Destruction grew up being
inspired by rebel artists like Perry Farrell who didn't give a shit
about fitting into an industry model. Instead, they did exactly what
they wanted and fought for individualism.
