They continued to play shows in their native Pittsburgh and surrounding areas, supporting bands as varied as Jucifer, Sworn Enemy, and more as word surrounding their debut began to get out. In winter 2007, members of Don Caballero tipped Relapse to the band and forwarded along the self-titled CD, urging for a listen. Relapse worked out an arrangement to give the self-titled CD a proper international release while the band writes their first full-length (coming in 2009). Reminiscent of the debuts of label-mates Burnt By the Sun and Mastodon, Hero Destroyed are the perfect addition to Relapse’s long running history of bands light on pretension and rich with punishingly technical chops. Arguably the Steel City’s finest modern metal export this side of the 21st Century, the band’s mechanistic, low-end crunch impacts with the subtlety of a wrecking ball.
