about

"...they have finally taken the full length dive with this release. It was worth the wait, because Destructoid shows the band firing on all cylinders, delivering a slamming platter of noise rock that is heavy, pounding and filled to the brim with the misanthropic rants of guitarist/vocalist Victor Dowgiallo... Destructoid is easily one of the best records to come out of Connecticut this year, but more importantly, it’s one of the best noise rock records to come out in the world outside of the Nutmeg State. The band has really stepped up their game on their full length debut, creating one vital slice of noise punk. This will take a lot of people by surprise. Don’t miss out on this one."

-New Noise Magazine

"“Connecticut” and “metal” usually go about as well together as Jews and K.K. Warslut, but in Grizzlor we may have found the exception to the rule as the New Haven outfit delivers a bruising blend of noise rock and sludge on their new album Destructoid, out now. Micro-label Hex Records released the effort, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they graduate to the big leagues soon enough."

-Metal Sucks

"Their unique brand of lurid, sludgy weirdness is perhaps more potent than ever. Coming across like the Melvins providing a twisted soundtrack to Saturday morning kid’s cartoons, "Destructoid" is a barrage of sharp angular riffs, aggressively pummeled rhythms and vocals spat through a wall of misanthropic fuzz"

-The Sludgelord

"And there it is, a three-man avalanche of discordance and sonic hellfire pummeling me before I even know what hit. Anyone get the plate number on that fiery truck that just ran me over…again… At some point I’ll learn my lesson and remember to brace for impact before I put the headphones on. On second thought, probably not, because one of GRIZZLOR’s selling points is their ability to continually rattle you out of whatever mundane coma you’re riding until death decides its had enough of toying with you like a cat with a baby bunny rabbit. Just rip the fucker’s head off already and put it out of its misery. Just make sure you’ve got some GRIZZLOR on the soundtrack when it all goes down."

-The Metal Dad

"‘Destructoid’, the new LP from New Haven noise trio Grizzlor, is as rough, raw and rugged as if the band were your next door neighbours, playing it unsociably loud at 2am right next to your bedroom. Full of bouncy, swaggering rhythms and a willful disregard of standard tropes, the eleven tracks couple the confrontational urgency of garage grunge with the experimentation of noise rock."

-Punktastic

"Destructoid sounds like the soundtrack to that one time back in 1999 when Sasquatch, Beast Man from (He-Man), and the Tasmanian Devil had a coke filled booze bender in Vegas for like a solid three days with absolute zero hours of sleep. That three day escapade nearly shook poor Las Vegas and Western Society as a whole to its knees and Grizzlor’s Destructoid may very well do the same thing again once it hits the ears of the masses."

-Bearded Gentlemen Music

" 'Yeah, I don’t know, I mean, I got to think about it,' says the voice at the beginning of “Fruitloopville,” the opener to noise-rock band Grizzlor’s latest release and its first full-length album, Destructoid. The voice is lazy and comical, and doesn’t prepare you for the heaviness that follows. It’s a fitting introduction to the rest of Destructoid, which finds one of New Haven’s hardest bands digging further into the sound it developed three years ago — one that marries thick slabs of noise with a wicked sense of humor... Destructoid suggests that three years in, Grizzlor is just getting started."

-New Haven Independent

"I don't get it."

Track Name: FRUITLOOPVILLE
FRUITLOOPVILLE

It's looking like from here
People are afraid of taking a little bit of risk in life.
It's looking like from here
People are afraid of taking a little bit of some chances.

It's looking like, from my side of things,
People have lost their ambition.
So, what's the point of life when you choose to be a wimp
And don't go outside your comfort zone?

I might as well be living in Fruitloopville.
Don't be a wimp.
Track Name: HOUSE IN THE WOODS
HOUSE IN THE WOODS

I want a house in the middle of the woods,
Far away so I don't have to deal with this bullshit.
There wouldn't be one person in sight.
They can't bother you anymore.

Bye bye, I'm not talking to you anymore.
Bye bye, and fuck off.

I want a house in the middle of the woods,
Far away so I don't have to deal with this nonsense.
There wouldn't be one person that exists.
They can't bother me anymore.
Track Name: TOOTH PAIN
TOOTH PAIN

Guess what? My teeth are rotting. It’s awesome, yeah.
I got pain going down the side of my fucking face,
It’s giving me headaches.

Give me a pair of pliers, so I can rip them out.
This kind of shit will make you want to rip
Somebody’s fucking head right off
With your bare hands.

So, make sure you take care of yourself
Because down the line you’re going to regret it.

Yup.
Track Name: MISERABLE JERK
MISERABLE JERK

I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m just a miserable fuck.
The glass is always half empty to me.
Unappreciative of the good things that you got.
Always looking for the worst outcome.

Everything is just goddamn great
When you’re always so fucking pessimistic.
Morbid, negative, just hopeless
Nothing ever seems to work out.

I will just keep going.
I’m just a miserable fuck.

I will just keep going.
Track Name: STUPID SHIT
STUPID SHIT

I'd have to say that fifty times a day I get paranoia, it sucks.
It's no way to live, but that's my luck.
I was born this way, it sucks.
Fuck.

I'd have to say that every single day I have this idea, it's really weird.
That what if I snap and never come back?
I'm just insane, forever.
Track Name: TOO MANY PEOPLE
TOO MANY PEOPLE

Every time I turn around there's someone in my way.
Every time I drive around there's someone in my way.
You would think that the state was evacuating
When you're driving to work.
I'm going to rip my steering wheel out of my dashboard.

Every time I turn around there's someone in my space.
And every time I think to myself, get out of my space.
I think I might have claustrophobia from the human race
I'm going to rip my hair right out of my skull now.
Track Name: FIGHTING ALIENS WITH NO GRAVITY
FIGHTING ALIENS WITH NO GRAVITY

i think there's somewhere I'm supposed to go,
I think there's something I'm supposed to do,
I think there's someone I should talk to.

This caffeine's making me feel like my hearts going to explode
And it's just making it worse for me.

I'll just have another smoke
And just stare right at the wall
And just never go all the way through with nothing.

Because I'm just a waste and I waste my time
When I'm not fucking working.

Because I suck.
Track Name: WADE'S NOTES
WADE'S NOTES

Welcome to your appointment.
Come in and take a seat, please.
That's a nine thousand dollar couch,
So don't scuff it.

I'm just going to get my notepad
That I use to write about your pathetic life.
But, most of the time I'm just doodling.

I got these degrees all hanging on my wall
That all specialize on how much that I care.
Take a seat back and tell me how much you suck,
You suck.

So, let's talk about your problems and how they should come first
And how you can't get a grip
On this shitty life you got stuck with.
You're just going through the same shit as everyone else
On this fucking planet.

But, I don't give a fuck what's wrong with you.
I'll just get some pills and mask what's real
And sit back and cash your check
While you're a doped up emotional wreck.
Track Name: FEELING LIKE SHIT
FEELING LIKE SHIT

How are you feeling today?
Because I'm feeling like shit.
So, I'll drink my Jim Beam
Straight right out of the bottle.

So, I'll drink alone.
That's what you do when you're introverted.
So, how you feeling today?
Obviously, I'm feeling like shit.

So, how are you feeling today?
Because I'm always feeling like shit.
So, I drink my alcohol
Straight right out of the bottle.

And I'll drink alone
That's what you do when you're introverted.
How are you feeling today?
I'm always feeling like shit.
Track Name: SIMULATION
SIMULATION

Are you afraid of where you go when you die?
It's not easy to think that one of these days you ain't going to exist anymore.

But, who is to say that you were ever alive?
But, either way, it's all going black one day.
It's all going black one day.

Don't be afraid of where you go when you die
Because one of these days you ain't going to mean shit anymore.

Nobody cares if you were ever alive
Because one of these days we ain't going to mean shit anymore.
We ain't going to mean shit anymore.
Track Name: QUIT AND DIE
QUIT AND DIE

Give up on your life, don't even try.
Just going to wither away and mean nothing
At the end of the day.

Fuck your talent,
It doesn't mean shit.
You're just going to die like everyone else in the fucking world.
Fuck me.

So, I'm going to quit.
And I don't give a shit
So, go crawl up and die.

Give up one your dreams, it all means nothing.
You're just going to wither away and mean nothing
at the end of the day.

Fuck your thoughts,
It all means nothing.
You're just going to die like everyone else in the fucking world.
Fuck me.

I quit.
