The title of this track should be indication enough of what lies ahead, but it's with each growing second that you realize the full scale of Ramonda Hammer's power. "Destroyers" come from the band's upcoming New Professor release out 8/4, and it flows with a menacing edge, due in part to shredding instrumentals that loom throughout, like dark storm clouds. Meanwhile, vocalist Devin Davis sets the stage for a proclamation of destruction and overcoming. The whole track is akin to standing on your porch and watching a thunderstorm roll in, you can see and feel the darkness coming and when it finally arrives, the clouds open up giving way to rain, noise and endless claps of thunder.
