Appetite for Destruction

Demiricous breaks through with an album about breaking stuff.


Indianapolis rock band Demiricous formed on Halloween Night in 2001, which sounds about right: The quartet's new album, One, is rife with ghoulish howls, haunting growls, and a general sense of mayhem. Like many Midwest metal bands, Demiricous makes a point of blasting eardrums, but it also injects songs with blue-collar workmanship: One features lots of dual-guitar shredding and plenty of hooks throughout. And like Slayer — an obvious influence — Demiricous prefers its thrash served with a side of politics, fetishizing the carnage and destruction singer Nate Olp yelps. Bonus: One includes the year's best song title (metal division): "Repentagram."
