Biography

Total Fucking Destruction is the brainchild of frontman / drummer Richard Hoak, a longtime member of Grindcore legends Brutal Truth. Centered around Hoak’s social criticisms and his breakneck, jazz-inspired drumming, Total Fucking Destruction pushes Grindcore into uncharted, open-minded realms. Musical influences include the raw power of old Napalm Death, the progressive approach of old Minutemen, and the glory of classic rock radio. The SF Weekly has characterized Hoak as “the Devil to Andrew WK’s angel.”

Since it has been around, circa 2000, Total Fucking Destruction never ceased to stress its audience with its very own expression of Grindcore: anguish-inducing, claustrophobic, psychologically harassing and nihilist. The band has released numerous versions of its demos, spreading the word worldwide, rereleasing them as EPs, tapes, CDr’s… all mean was used to attack each and every possible listener, unceasingly. And touring has always been approached in the very same manner, like the UK tour with Bones Brigade records’ own Sylvester Staline.

The band, in 2004, released these demos again, in their ultimate form, the “Compact disc v1.0″ demo-compilation (Bones Brigade records) and then focused on sharpening, over and over, their weapons of personal total fucking destruction.

2007′s “Zen and the art of total fucking destruction” (Bones Brigade records), the real debut album by Hoak’s special brigade of nervous benchmarking twisted the knife, slowly in every possible way. The claustrophobic and anxious video for “Armed response” depicting that asphyxiating feeling the band is making its listener endure to its paroxysm.

It took seven years to Hoak to define, refine, sharpen the style of his musical Beast until it exploded, out of control, at the audience’s face with this debut. The Beast once born started living for itself and Total Fucking Destruction released its second full-length, “Peace, love and total fucking destruction” (Bones Brigade records), the very next year, 2008, accompanied by a split 7″ EP with Agoraphic Nosebleed (Bones Brigade records, again).

Then the stressing fury started to explode at everyone’s face in every possible way: split 7” EP’s with fellow Bones Brigade recording artists, Spoonful Of Vicodin and Brutal Truth, a seat on Relapse’s “This comp. kills fascists 1”, a three way split 7” EP with Brutal Truth and Narcosis and a split 7” EP with Gardenbox were released between 2007 and 2010.

Besides all these releases, Total Fucking Destruction also had a split 7” EP with Japanese grinding legends, Unholy Grave, titled “Grind Eternal”, through Bones Brigade records, in 2009.

Early 2010, alongside their Japan tour and Maryland Deathfest appearance, Total Fucking Destruction also recorded a full-length worth of material as well as a a new video clip for a previously unreleased song out of these sessions.

2011: Total Fucking Destruction disrupts and destroys with the new album “Hater”, a furious and stylized experiment of post-apocalyptic groove, crushing pedal-to-the-metal grind together with rock, punk, jazz and thrash to form a powerful work of grindcore art.

Recorded and mixed at Mark-it-Zero Music Studios (Brutal Truth, Rumpelstiltskin Grinder, XXX Maniak, Vulcan, Old Head) by Dan O’Hare, “Hater” is a technical and accurate representation of the poetry of Total Fucking Destruction’s over-the-top message and in-your-face live performances.

“Hater” celebrates the slow motion apocalypse in true Total Fucking Destruction style: Fast, loud, brutal, spontaneous and deadly fucking serious; exploding with beauty and power.  ”Hater” will change perceptions of TFD and grindcore. “Hater” will shout worldwide a message of peace, love and total fucking creation.

Says drummer/vocalist Richard Hoak (Brutal Truth): “Fuck Yeah!”
