POINT OF VIEW Announce “Vultures” EP, Premiere New Song!
Posted by admin on Apr.20, 2017
The day has come! We are so incredibly excited to share the first single off of POINT OF VIEW’s upcoming 12″ EP, “Vultures”, which will officially be released on May 12th! The fine folks over at New Noise Magazine have premiered the track “Wolves” – Check it out by clicking here!
POINT OF VIEW are no strangers to outstanding EP releases – 2013’s “Burner” EP showcased the band’s impressive ability to combine unconventional and lasting song-structures with extremely memorable vocal melodies, heartfelt lyrics, and tight-knit musicianship that left fans clawing more material. “Vultures” picks up where “Burner” left off, with a maturity in sound that will surely serve as a perfectly satisfying next dose of melancholy melodic punk rock in the form of 5 incredible new tracks.
“Vultures” was recorded in late 2016 with Scott Goodrich at Nu-Tone Studios, and will be available on Purple/Yellow Swirl Colored Vinyl, with a digital download included. Preorder the 12″ Colored Vinyl EP in our online store. $10 only, and we ship everywhere!
The vinyl pressing is limited to 250pcs, while the EP will be distributed everywhere digitally, including our Bandcamp site, right here!

Creator-Destructor Podcast – Launching December 1st!
Posted by admin on Nov.20, 2015
The first episode of the ‘Creator-Destructor Podcast’ will premiere on Tuesday, December 1st! I’ve spent the past few months planning this show, thinking about what I wanted to talk about, what interests me in particular about music and art, and why I feel compelled to get on the mic and sit down with people in the first place, in a way a LOT of other people are doing right now. Trust me, I’ve considered that. I think in a nutshell, I started the podcast in order to better understand the world of music around me, to try to pick the brains of people I look up to and admire, in order to gain some insight into their process, their lives, routines, etc. In going through these episodes, I’ve noticed that I’ve also used the show to vent a bit and talk about what confuses and bothers me, what gets me excited, and how I deal with the world around me.
I’ve been backlogging a lot of episodes with all kinds of super-interesting and awesome guests, which I’m thrilled about. We will release a new episode every Tuesday, reliably, so count on that! I will be talking to a lot of friends of mine for anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, about whatever the fuck we want really. There is no blueprint to these conversations. I suppose most of them will be guided by what I’m interested in at the moment- not necessarily having to do with Creator-Destructor Records, but should be a fun listen nonetheless. So yeah, tune in, eh? See you on Tuesday, December 1st!
SPINEBREAKER Preorders Launched / “River of Pain” Premiere!
Posted by admin on Nov.19, 2015
San Jose’s SPINEBREAKER have unloaded the maiden single from their upcoming debut “Ice Grave” LP, with the gory torrent of “River Of Pain”, through an exclusive at Blow The Scene!
SPINEBREAKER’s “Ice Grave” debut provides a soundtrack of raw, sonic death-metal annihilation in a world of human filth, greed, and corruption. Having slithered into the Bay Area hardcore and metal community over the past two years, the band’s explosive blend of European Inspired Death-Metal reflects pure audio destruction: not overly calculated, lightning-fast or technical, but reliably menacing and tremendously heavy. Through the twelve tracks that form “Ice Grave”, SPINEBREAKER reminds the listener of the glory days of 1990s Scandinavian, Swedish and American death metal in a way that is refreshing and punishing. While the band varies in tempo, sometimes grooving into Heartwork-era down-tuned riffage, and other times blasting their way through an onslaught of tremolo and thrash, the songs never cease to impress in their ability to maintain brutally heavy, while diverse and violent in their own way. In additional SPINEBREAKER news, we’ve launched the preorder of “Ice Grave” in our online store! Go grab your copy of the 180-gram Black Vinyl Preorder, which will ship out the week of the release- January 15th, 2016! Tour dates, additional tunes and more from SPINEBREAKER soon, so stay tuned, headbangers.
LIGHT THIS CITY Reunion + ‘Stormchaser’ Double LP Preorder
Posted by admin on Sep.01, 2015
We are excited to announce that we will be releasing LIGHT THIS CITY’s 4th and Final 2008 LP, “Stormchaser” for the first time EVER on Vinyl! LIGHT THIS CITY came out of the Bay Area in 2002 and released 4 full-length albums on Prosthetic Records, finally disbanding in 2008. In that time, the band firmly established themselves as one of the country’s most exciting Melodic Death Metal bands. Featuring HEARTSOUNDS members Laura Nichol on Vocals and Ben Murray on Drums, this is definitely a must check-out for fans of Heavy Metal and HEARTSOUNDS alike! None of LIGHT THIS CITY’s full-length releases have ever received a Vinyl Treatment, so Creator-Destructor is incredibly thrilled to bring this album to life as a Double LP 180g. Vinyl Reissue! This pressing is extremely limited to 250pcs, so get yours before they are gone! While the Double-LP will be released in late 2015, preorders have begun through our online store, and are expected to go quickly, so don’t sleep on this one!
Furthermore, LIGHT THIS CITY has announced a one-off reunion show in San Francisco, CA on Sunday, November 8th @ The DNA Lounge alongside DARKEST HOUR, who will be headlining and celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band, as well as the 10 year anniversary of their ‘Undoing Ruin’ album, which they will be playing in full. Get stoked.
