Today we review Deep Trip, the first studio album from the band Destruction Unit. Released on Sacred Bones on August 20th, the 9 track LP is a very full, guitar heavy album that taps into a variety of genres such as punk, metal, psychedelia, drone, space-rock, and more. Destruction Unit, a band that has had a variety of members come and go, offers a solid, hopefully lasting line-up in this loud, fast, and intricate record jammed with intense guitar sounds.
