This Will Destroy You biography
THIS WILL DESTROY YOU is a post rock band from Texas formed in 2005 by Chris King (guitar), Jeremy Galindo (guitar), Raymond Brown (bass, keyboard) and Andrew Miller (drums). In June 2006 the band released their first EP entitled "Young Mountain" which was originally meant to be their demo tape. The EP was well received by critics and fans. In February 2007 the band began recording their first full length and in late January 2008 the band released their eponymous self titled debut. The band is currently signed to Magic Bullet Records.

Recommended for fans of Explosions in the Sky, Sigur Ros and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Review by TCat
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Even though this is an E.P, it clocks in at 36 minutes of beautiful, blissful post-rock instrumentals. This was the band's debut recording and it was self-promoted and self-produced. However, the E.P. was getting a lot of buzz and great reviews, which, for a beginning band, were well deserved. They were soon signed on by a label and this E.P. was re-released by the label. The production is superb and sounds nothing like a debut album.

The band hails from the same place as the post-rock band "Explosions in the Sky", but to me the sound of this album is so much richer and varied then EitS. They do tend to follow the basic post- rock formula on this album, but I find it is more emotive and beautiful, especially in the softer sections. Probably more closer to Mogwai than EitS, they are also not afraid to use digital percussion at times, or, at least, that is what it sounds like.

The first track is "Quiet" and it sounds very much like a typical post-rock song. But "The World is Our _____" is so much better, with that pretty build up that climaxes a few times, and the build up isn't overly long. Again, the sound is so well textured that every sound is heard and the music isn't as dense and hard to access as it is in another post-rock band called "Pelican". This music is so much more penetrable and that works to a definite advantage. "I Believe in Your Victory" is another one similar to the 1st track except the climaxes are not as dense and the guitars have a nice ringing, chiming sound. On the second build up, there is a very strange percussion pattern that is definitely original, kind of a start/stop beat that helps to build tension.

The intermediate, short track called "Grandfather Clock" is a very nostalgic feeling song which doesn't have a build up, but it lovely nonetheless. It breaks up the formulaic feeling before it gets too repetitive and is well placed on the album. "Happiness" comes next and this one is an example of a post-rock symphony, so well layered and beautiful. Again the climaxes aren't overly dense but are lighter sounding than a lot of Post-rock music and that is what is so attractive to me. Such a well thought-out song with a lot of real emotion pouring out of the instruments. Very nice. Last but not least is the multi-part "There Are Some Remedies..." which is a little more harsh, but still not impenetrable. When the second build up comes in, the rhythm's change and build up to a very explosive climax this time which suddenly ends leaving you suspended in the middle of some special effects by the guitars. The ending is a little quick and even though the suspension at the end is a effective ending, it would have been nice to be allowed to shimmer a little longer. But that is a minor complaint really.

Overall, this is a vary good debut recording by the band and definitely leaves you wanting to explore more of their music. There really isn't anything ground breaking, but it definitely is post- rock that rises above the norm even with the formulaic structure. The emotion level is much higher than what I have heard in most cookie-cutter post-rock bands. I feel there is a lot of promise in this E.P. and as for myself, I want to explore more of their music. Even though I have had this excellent E.P. for a while, I still have the desire to listen to more of their discography. In the meantime, I will give this a 4 star rating, albeit a very strong 4 stars.

This Will Destroy You Post Rock/Math rock

Review by BrufordFreak
Collaborator Jazz-Rock/Fusion/Canterbury Team

4 stars A powerful debut album from these Post/Math Rockers. Great sound production throughout. Rough and raunchy or ultra-clear whenever they want it, there are moments of MONO's beauty, MOGWAI's punch, SIGUR RÓS's style with RED SPAROWES overall consistency and the sound and production reminiscent of post-Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me THE CURE. Also, there is some great JOHN MARTYN-like electric (any Echoplex here?) guitar work. Often the music develops a little too slowly or with too little surprise and variation, but it is very high quality Math Rock.

Favorite songs: "They Move on Tracks of Never-ending Light" (6:56) (9/10) and"Villa del Refugio" (7:06) (9/10).

Review by The Truth
Collaborator Post/Math Rock Team

4 stars One of the best releases of 2011.

Tunnel Blanket is my first delve into This Will Destroy You and it definitely won't be my last, the epic GY!BE-esque atmosphere that these guys create is stunning and somehow falls into a whole new category of post-rock.

Guitar drones are one of the key components of this album's overall sound and they really make your ears sweat with epicness. Each track is well thought out and well produced winding up in a polished but still somewhat raw sound that helps maintain some of it that great intensity. Slow building tracks have always been a favorite of mine and This Will Destroy You really puts them to great use on this album. Sometimes you are almost soothed to sleep and sometimes you're being thrown into a concrete slab, the diversity is just mind bending.

A great album, highly recommended.

Field Studies (Split with Lymbyc Systym)
This Will Destroy You Post Rock/Math rock

Review by JTP88

4 stars Asides their magical 2008 album, This Will Destroy You have also released a split with, at least to me, a very unknown band, Lymbyc Systym, also texan, also post-rock, also beautiful.

This starts with the best track on the EP, "Brutalism & The Worship Of The Machine" is a clear take on a much more ambient sound, not as ambient as "Villa Del Refugio" on their self-titled LP, but a much heavier and much more thought out than the aforementioned. And it runs from an epic start to beautiful melodies and perfect windy atmospheres, a really wondrous track. Next comes the second TWDY track, "Freedom Blade", a really soft and sympathetic track, with gorgeous xylophone (or something similar) and tender melodies.

Then, the Lymbyc Systym side, not as good as TWDY's one, but also very fine. Lymbyc Systym have a more dynamic and song-oriented song-writing, adding electronic percussion to its tracks (which TWDY don't in this EP), and very appealing melodies, this made me immediately like Lymbyc Systym, although I found then much more pleasure in the TWDY's tracks.

This is really excelent, This Will Destroy You still cannot fail for me, and anyone who likes post-rock, and especially TWDY or Lymbyc Systym, should definitely listen to this one (it is very short, clocking at 26 minutes, so it isn't a bore at all).

This Will Destroy You Post Rock/Math rock

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

3 stars THIS WILL DESTROY YOU is a Post-Rock band out of Texas who are often compared with EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY and MONO. Lots of ambient sections here and they often build to a climax. So yes this is "Post-Rock 101" if there is such a thing.

"A Three-Legged Workhorse" opens with faint "noises" that build. A change after 1 1/2 minutes as drums come in with guitar as the "noise" stops. It's building until it kicks in heavily at 4 1/2 minutes. It settles before 6 1/2 minutes then starts to build again. "Villa Del Refugio" opens with these humming sounds that come and go. It's getting noisier. It settles to end it. "Threads" features these relaxing guitar sounds with drums. It's louder 2 1/2 minutes in. "Leather Wings" opens with fairly heavy drums as gentle guitar joins in.

"The Mighty Rio Grande" is the longest track at almost 11 1/2 minutes. Mellow guitar comes and goes as faint synths continue in the background. It starts to build. It settles 4 1/2 minutes in then kicks back in before 9 minutes, it's not as heavy as before though. "They Move On Tracks Of Never-Ending Light" is pastoral with guitar. It starts to get fuller after 2 1/2 minutes. "Burial On The Presidio Banks" is again mellow. Drums before 2 minutes then it settles a minute later. Drums return then it kicks in at 6 1/2 minutes.

A pretty good album but this one seems to need more patience then I can give it.

Young Mountain
This Will Destroy You Post Rock/Math rock

Review by JTP88

5 stars I already wrote a review for their self-titled album, and I gave it 5 stars, little after that I listened to their Young Mountain EP, and what can I say? I think I even like it more than the album!

While their S/T was more about ambient soundscapes, really slow movements and little climaxes, this approaches much more to the Mogwai sound (yes, I am not gonna lie, this guys aren't the most original band out there). The band creates a much richer sound, more emotional and also faster, and in consequence, much more dynamic. All the songs here are absolutely beautiful and different in its own way, from the emotional slow moves of "Quiet", to the headbanging climax at the end of "There Are Some Remedies Worse Than The Disease", passing by the bright electronics of "Grandfather Clock".

I don't really like to describe post-rock, but I can only say that this is very warm and touching music, a masterpiece in post-rock.

Review by Diego I

3 stars Nothing under the sun ... this album it´s not an exception, with "classical" melodies, almost monotonous, continue on the line of many other bands like Russian Circles, Godspeed You Black Emperor!, and Vorkoma, already had heard such melodies, long crescendo tunes, melancholic feelings, with long instrumental climax, and simplicity, but not in the possitive way, is not persuasive that looks like a copy of what these bands have done call, even if somebody´s being told me it's a new album of them, i would believe unequivocally... This Will Destroy You Ep, is only for post-math-rock fans, no more than three stars...

This Will Destroy You Post Rock/Math rock

Review by Marty McFly
Special Collaborator Errors and Omissions Team

3 stars What we got here is one of these newer post-rock bands, but sadly, their official debut (studio album type debut), but sadly, doesn't bring much new, nor interesting things into PR. I'm aware that this genre's music structure is quite different and has to be taken in its own way. OK, that's fine for me, as long as it's good album.

I can take and rate this music in rock way, but that would be stupid. I'll do it in my own way, mostly depending on feeling, because Post-Rock as I understand it, is a lot about dreaming, ascending onto another plane of existence, where just mind can enter, roam, hear these transcendental sounds. Simply feel it. Of course, this all can also mean just bunch of weird sounds together. There's a strange similarity with trance (I'm not expert on this, to take it as that), first just sole sounds, joining together, building something bigger. Of course, this comes from rock, so it's far more interesting, mature, can offer more than just head-banging, but can exactly this album offer these things ?

A Three-legged Workhorse, strange name, but when listening post-rock, you can either admire these weird names, or just ignore them. But problem of this song, and after all, whole album is its monotone sound. It's good (mostly), it's nice, but it was rather pleasant, than satisfying experience listening it. Also, I lack new way of doing PR, something proggy, something innovative, or at least not cliché. But as I said, it's nothing bad, just also nothing new under the sun.

3(+), not that I'm against calm music, but it has to be strong, powerful, yet calm. Simply, interesting, not just average. And sadly, this is just better average.

Review by Tall Hair

5 stars Perfection. For me, this THE perfect post-rock album. There's nothing that should have been done differently. Not only are the songs masterpieces individually, but the album works as a whole too. There is enough variation to keep you interested, but not too much, so that the album would lose consistency. There are ambient parts, calm parts, beautiful parts, happy and sad parts, and the parts that will destroy you.

The execution is perfect; the guitars sound soft at times and when necessary they are screaming with distortion. The drums sound big, especially the snare, but not 80's big, just big. The texture is very rich, there are enough instruments to bring the right color. The recording quality and mixing is top-notch, which is not always the case with post-rock.

I won't go deeper in this review to describe the songs themselves, since i would just be describing typical post-rock songs. The reason why this album deserves five stars is not because it would be somehow groundbreaking but simply because it's just so really really good. Seriously, perfect.

PS. Good news! This album is available for 100% free and 100% legal download at gimmesound.com, go check it out and support the artist!

Review by JTP88

5 stars This is album is, for me, everything post-rock should be: simple, beautiful, emotional, soothing and peaceful. I'm actually quite surprised about the ignorance of TWDY's music here in PA, I think they're in pair with some of the greatest post-rock bands, of course they are not the most original band out there, but this has touched me like very few others did... A guitar comes softly above the introducing noise of opener "A Three-Legged Workhorse", and those few little slow notes make one of the most special songs in the album, absolutely gorgeous music, and the electronic drums fall perfectly in the mood. "Villa Del Refugio" is a total ambient song, beautiful and peaceful and "The Mighty Rio Grande" is a great darker song, but for me, the best is in "They Move On Tracks of Never-Ending Light", this is the emotional peek of the album, the guitar alone forms a gorgeous melody which can only bring the listener goose-bumps or even tears, it's absolutely mighty. This is essential for post-rock fans, an incredible and touching piece of art.
