"Although your first impression might be (like ours) to lump these guys in with thousands of other modern hard rock bands...if you will give their music a bit of time and attention you are likely to warm up to their sound. Even though the tracks on this album are hard rockers, the band infuses their music with enough poppy hooks to keep you coming back for more. The songs are basic and simple...delivered without unnecessary instruments and overdubs. As such, the songs tend to pack a real genuine punch. But the songs are the real meat here...and there are plenty of cool rockers to be found. Ten kickass tracks including "Secret Handshake," "Karate Bike," "Choke On It," and "Robot Robot." All are simultaneously intense and memorable. Neat stuff, well executed."

You instantly hear the influence of the Rolling Stones and Nirvana throughout the self-titled Death to Our Enemies record. A trio of rock fanatics, Death to Our Enemies pummels you with their fist-pumping anthems of cocked-and-ready rock n roll steeped heavily in garage rock and grunge. Hot and steamy guitars glisten with distorted melodies and churning harmonies. Loud and with a nod towards garage punk, the album is not for the faint of heart."

"The images that singer /guitarist Matt Coffee chose to adorn the album art of his band's self titled debut say a lot about the disc itself: a Rocket, wolves, switchblades. Death To Our Enemies are not particularly black or evil song titles "Karate Bike" and "Deadly Art of Ninja" hardly seem intended terrify. But they do have a distinctly metal bent, in the same way that nineties stalwarts like Nirvana (at least bleach) and L7 married razor-sharp guitars to other keen melodic sensibility. Their debut is an unmistakably garage-y effort opener "Secret Handshake" begins with chunky, picked bass, but in the background, coffee's guitar buzzes like it's waiting to strike. This is not a band that is in to crafting layers of texture they're a power trio, and there's little beyond the occasional overdubbed solo or acoustic guitar here. Their single-minded devotion to guitar, bass, drums, and howling vocals is admirable, since it makes the moments when they stretch into more impressionistic terrain, as one of the delay drenched " Robot Robot" all the more impractial. When the current musical infatuation with the eighties is over, Death to Our Enemies will be primed and ready for the nineties revival."

[Translation]
Damn, words are failing me. what can you say to a record with music that makes classification almost impossible. Sure, the fondness for dirt and noise are like a red thread through every one of the ten songs, but otherwise DEATH TO OUR ENEMIES put their ideas in places that don't have anything in common at first glance. So it is even more amazing that it works and that there is no impression of an uninspired collage. The three musicians from minneapolis manage easily to convey the whole spectrum from "hanging around" to "exhilarated" with the help of their musical preferences (and there's lot's of those). at the same time they put in lots of surprises to keep one's attention. Pieces, that seem to be structured rather simply, grow in their appeal and itensity with every further listening. One thing is clear: DEATH TO OUR ENEMIES are not normal. But they released a debut that is unequaled in its form.

Bio

Death To Our Enemies make rock songs. Groomed by the 90ís style grunge and 70ís cock rock, Matt, Chuck and Ken have crafted a genre-bending debut record that will stick with you like a craving for your next forbidden fix. This record is like that secret meth lab next door. A mixture of standard household rock items; cooked, mixed and altered into a sweet mixture that all the kids are looking for on the streets.
Matt Coffee and Chuck Terhark grew up in Fargo together weaving in and out of bands throughout the mid 90ís. Both made the trek to Minneapolis and made quick pals with bassist Ken Tyborski. All three were tooling around in other peopleís bands, never really satisfied by the vision being expressed. Frequent bar room meetings between the friends soon spawned this super group Death To Our Enemies. Three dudes, assembled with the same vision of rock perfection. Walking the line of Punk, Noise, Metal 70ís rock and party anthems.
Turning your stereo up to 11 you will be enlightened by the desert night wind guitar rifts, held in place by the rhythmic cadence strewn out by Ken and Chuck. This cocktail of rock is topped off with Mattís haunting, sunny vocals. Like Redd Kross before, Death To Our Enemies gels pop culture media into a well-crafted slab of rock.
