Album review: DESTROY SHE SAID – Down And Dirty

Bad Reputation ( Release date – 25.05.13)

This is the debut album from Destroy She Said, a Melbourne based five piece who like to rock! Low down and dirty hard rock is the band’s forte, blending together elements of AC/DC, Sabbath, stoner rock with a Rose Tattoo attitude.

It’s all about the riff with these guys, they keep it simple but they are very effective, straight forward hard rock played with a passion. Frontman Simon McCullough sounds like a young Bon Scott which adds to the AC/DC comparison, this though is no bad thing.

The guys have been together for a few years now and can write a mean tune, whether they are rocking out as on lead track from the album ‘No Church’ or taking a more laid back approach and really getting into the groove as on ‘ You Might Think I Love You…’ which ploughs a mean furrow.

This is a strong debut album from a talented band. There may not be much new here, but the guys put in maximum effort and have produced a great hard rocking album.
