Monday, July 6
Destruction Unit

In the promotional material for the new Destruction Unit album Negative Feedback Resistor, the Arizona crew proudly declares that they “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 their 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 the remaining audience members and throw them deep into the void. With Black Liquid Drop, Filthy. $8, 9:30pm, K23 Gallery, 702 Fredericksburg
