New Jersey death metal outfit EYE OF THE DESTROYER have announced that they will release their new studio album, ‘The Wolf You Feed’ on October 9th via their High Potency imprint. The record serves as the follow up to the band’s highly acclaimed 2019 effort ‘Baptized In Pain’, which received high marks from outlets like Metal Injection and saw regular airplay on SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal. Led by multi-instrumentalist Joe Randazza, who performs all of the instrumentals and vocals for ‘The Wolf You Feed’, Eye of the Destroyer is a furiously focused project that aims to bring the scathing animus and unshakable resolve of the Hardcore genre into the dire times faced by the millennial generation.
“The Wolf You Feed” is Eye of the Destroyer’s darkest album to date. The record comes on the heels of the critically acclaimed “Baptized in Pain”. Eye of the Destroyer’s new EP comes into its own with an evolved writing style that utilizes elements of the band’s New Jersey hardcore roots, controlled chaos, and raw emotion.
The album provides crucial commentary on the plights that millennials face from childhood trauma to archaic political dogma. Joe Randazza dug deep into the trenches of his subconscious to write and produce this album that rips the band-aid off the festering wounds that plague a whole generation. Shadow work in musical form, this album is a reminder that taking your power back requires a deep and uncomfortable inspection of the dark recesses of your mind.
This album was written and produced by local New Jersey scene legend Joe Randazza and almost failed to make it to press. Joe wrote the album in a really bad place while battling addiction and loss. The release of this album was fueled by bass player Dan Kaufman’s unrelenting belief in the spiritual awakening “The Wolf You Feed” delivers. It was recorded at the Soap Factory in Roselle Park, New Jersey and mixed and mastered by Keegan Okazaki from Nocturnal Audio based out of Toronto Canada.
