In the promotional material for the new Destruction Unit album Negative Feedback Resistor, the Arizona crew proudly declares that it “sacrificed their ears to make this album as loud a statement as possible. Will you lend them yours?” Believe the hype. At some point in the collective death drive they call a career, Destruction Unit glued its amp volume settings in place. At the shotgun-style K23 Gallery on Monday, the outfit will hit with all the recoil, violence and American ingenuity of a Marine Corps howitzer. “If Death Ever Slept,” the first volley fire from the new album, serves as a good introduction to Destruction Unit’s psychotropic noise rock. A six-shooter chord progression kicks off the nightmare of guitar, hardcore rhythms and sibilant hiss. After a pause for guitar decay, the Unit returns to the breakneck march to pick up remaining audience members and throw them deep into the void. With Black Liquid Drop, Filthy.
