Album Review: Restruct – Built Back Up From Self-Destruction

Washington hard rock natives Restruct have recently released their debut album ‘Built Back Up From Self-Destruction’ which comes out the corner ready for action. The four-piece have been hard at work back home in the US with a series of sold out shows and also receiving the backing of Rockstar energy drinks with an endorsement deal.

Restruct Built Back Up From Self-Destruction ArtworkRestruct don’t want you to prepare for their album with a mellow building intro but instead hit you with what makes this album worth a listen for hard rock and metal fans; a heavy hard rock rhythm, powerful emotive vocals and impressive guitar riffs. An opening that most to all hard rock bands would be proud to feature on their albums.

Each song on the album tells a story as the band show their versatility between hard rock and alternative metal genres. The band comes together on every song to bring something a little different to the one before but they are driven by an increasing amount of emotion and desire as any band looking to make a mark with their debut album would.

Restruct refuse to hide away when they expose themselves on the song ‘The Brim’ to show there is more than one dimension to their music and they have the capability of rising to the challenge of an acoustic song with strings accompanying the music.

‘Built Back Up From Self-Destruction’ excels with the heavier material and although they hit the right chord when they take a mellow direction, their sound on these songs is what sets them apart from other bands trying to release a hard rock debut. Too many bands claim they are entering the hard rock genre but fail to push the boundaries with their sound beyond alternative rock but Restruct have worked effortlessly on their sound.

Ferocious, gritty, powerful, emotional are just a few aspects of what make this 13-track album worth your time.

Rating – 8
