CANCER BATS ARE HAIL DESTROYERS
Whether (The?) Cancer Bats are hailing one who destroys things or they’re preaching for the destruction of ice pellets that fall from the sky, “Hail Destroyer” is a fucking sick song that makes me want to bow down to the destroyer AND obliterate ice from the heavens. I also like the way this video is shot — it isn’t particularly original (band performs song live in a room with funky lighting), but the look and feel of it are clear and striking, bearing a resemblance to Protest the Hero’s video for “Bloodmeat.” And like, the song fucking crushes.
“Hail Destroyer” comes from the album of the same name, out now on Black Market Activities (US) and Distort Records (Canada).
