Eye of the Destroyer release "What Goes Around Comes Around"
Exploding into life in a reign of epic fury, New Jersey based EYE OF THE DESTOYER are kicking off a new era with the hard-hitting single "What Goes Around Comes Around".
"It is really crazy the way this all kind of lined up. Before the pandemic we were going through some line-up changes and the chemistry with the other members was never really there. When the world started to open back up we reunited with our long time friend and original drummer Dave Mericle. It really changed things for us. It made making music fun again. This line-up has a ton of energy, attitude and I don't think people will be expecting this from EYE OF THE DESTOYER."
Initially formed in 2013, by Joe Randazza and Chris Halpin, EYE OF THE DESTOYER spent five years touring the US pre-pandemic, and their first full-length Baptized in Pain releasedin 2019. Now in 2022, reunited with original drummer Dave Mericle, "What Goes Around Comes Around" sees the band's unyielding drive continue. Musically the new release leans significantly into the New York Hardcore influence of BIOHARZARD and MADBALL while still showcasing the huge influence of SUFFOCATION in the quartet's sound. EYE OF THE DESTOYER recreate the anticipation and thrill of the mosh pit through deliciously distorted guitars, punchy percussion and unrelenting energy.
