A hard-charging, genre-juggling hard rock unit based out of Milan, Italy Destrage employs a compelling blend of melody-driven groove, math, djent, and progressive metal that's as technically impressive as it is highly cinematic.
Founded in 2005, and featuring the talents of vocalist Paolo Colavolpe, drummer Federico Paulovich, bassist Gabriel Pignata, and guitarists Matteo Di Gioia and Ralph Guido Salati, the band issued its first full-length studio album, Urban Being, in 2007 via Coroner
Records. Destrage stayed with the label for 2010's The King Is Fat 'N' Old, but their increasingly expanding profile eventually caught the eyes and ears of Metal Blade
, who snatched the band up in 2013. Are You Kidding Me? No., the group's first outing for the label, dropped the following year, and in 2016, they released their fourth studio long-player, the ambitious A Means to No End. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
