  I can’t fathom how difficult it must be to travel to a new continent to open up an entire tour. That’s the place Destrage find themselves them in currently, as they’re on the road with Protest the Hero and Good Tiger. I remember stumbling on the band as they put out the video for “Purania” in 2014 and being perplexed by the band, not able to discern what it was that I liked about them. Flash forward four years and I’m not sure I can tell you what about this band that’s so enjoyable, but words are better formed when you have a live show to couple the music with. Destrange an anomaly, and in 2018 when metal is rarely seeing anything unique, that’s a good thing.

I’ve been reminiscing this week of when I saw Iron Man ten years ago, watching Nick Fury walk onto screen at the end, and realizing that one day we would be getting an Avengers movie.By the time I was graduating high school, The Avengers was the talk of my entire student body, and with the stinger at the end, the question everyone asked was simple: Who was that? In refernece to Thanos, of course, we soon learned who he was. Father of Gamora. Threatening evil purple dude who sits on a chair. The guy who says “I’ll do it myself.” For all the ups and downs the Marvel Cinematic Universe has had, building upward has always been the strengh they’ve possessed. Cumilating in Infinity War,... 

“Keep your politics out metal!” Facebook users scream because an artist doesn’t share their political views, oblivious to the fact that many a classic metal song is politically charged. (“War Pigs,” for example) Ministry simply don’t care. With the past few years in America being politically charged and splitting the country down the middle, Ministry opt to argue out the discourse rather than mend it. You could say agitating it will only make it work itself out, and given by the production, they aimed to absolutely offend anyone in attendance who might question their views.

I think I often forget the simplest of reasons why I enjoy metal. As I get older, I find myself tracing back my roots and revisiting albums that I loved, all in an attempt to re-evaluate what it is I expect out of the genre and the standards I’ve set up. With the bleak void that is black metal to the enveloping sorrow that typically accompanies death metal, I’ve come to love bands in those genres, all the while appreciating their sound as an art form separate from the core sound the genre started from. On the opposite side of the spectrum, it was last Friday night when Battle Beast took to the stage that I remembered what it was like to hear metal that aimed to be fun rather than evil. The band no doubt take their...
