Pennsylvania has thrown out a grinding act worth your wild. They’re known as Total Fucking Destruction, and features former drummer/vocalist Richard Hoak the band has been through a twisted amount of performances and recorded numerous albums getting their name out for everyone to witness. But that?s not all in 2006 the band donated their rendition of “Kill Your Boss,” to raise funds for the Eyehategod musicians on Ernetic Records. Which assembled a benefit CD entitled “For The Stick – A Tribute to Eyehategod.” Moving onward to donating exclusive material; to Relapse Records 7 Slimewave Series that collaborated efforts got shared with Machetazo. Down the line Total Fucking Destruction was signed and unleashed their debut “Zen and the Art of Total Fucking Destruction,” a mixture of studio and acoustical live tracks that will blow your mind away! Once 2008 came around they released another album “Peace, Love, and Total Fucking Destruction,” of which has been given reviews unlike anything they’ve done or released thus far into their musical career. I conducted an interview with the drummer/vocalist Richard Hoak and this is what he had to say about the whole process.
