No Karma
Not many bands can state their mission in their name alone, but Chicago's Crush Kill Destroy are up for the challenge. Their moniker isn't an expression of hardcore violence, but rather a theory put into action. Crush Kill Destroy play aggressive, confident, angular rock music that can crush, kill, and destroy any preconceived notions about what rock music's structure may be or how it should be attacked. Dual guitars strangle one another in an almost telepathic fury, the rhythm section proves itself as inventive as it is precise, and the vocals fluctuate from calm assurance to manic energy within a span of seconds.

Formed in Ann Arbor, MI in 1999, Crush Kill Destroy quickly rose from the ranks of countless post-punk and indie bands scattered across the Midwest. The group established themselves as a fixture at such luminary venues as the Magic Stick in Detroit and the Empty Bottle in Chicago, then were highlighted at the 2002 Michiganfest festival alongside the Liars, Ted Leo and Milemaker. Havng issued two well-received albums on Makoto Recordings and toured the Midwest and East Coast innumerous times, Crush Kill Destroy equally employ the passionate approach to their music to their work ethic as well.

On Valentine's Day 2006, No Karma Recordings gave the world some loving with the release of Metric Midnight, a spanning and soaring collection that winds and turns down an enigmatic road. From the first ominous touch of bass that opens the record to the frenetic fury of saxophones at its ending, Metric Midnight is Crush Kill Destroy's best music yet. The flowering of snaking guitars cuts through the indefatigable drums, fully realizing the potential of their past and pointing towards the possibilities of their future. Look for national tours immediately following the release and throughout 2006 to carry this point home.
