*"Tons of 70's hard rock guitar riffs. Their debut album is an amazing combination of hardcore punk nihilism and catchy rock and roll anthems."
-Punk Planet

*"MYD would have fit in perfectly with the pioneering early 80's punk movement. They're a nice mixture of Black Flag's hardcore spirit and unheralded musicianship with just a tiny, important bit of the Germ's recklessness."
-City Beat

*"This band displays industrial strength punk signes rock with a furious sound and stage show to match."
-Columbus Alive

*"Their sound is locked down like a deadbolt, delivering visceral uppercuts with precise aim."
-Dayton Daily News

*"The raw power behind these songs hint at not only the talent behind them, but that certain something that Ann Arbor had in the sixties and Minneapolis in the ninties. . . a sleazy, aggressive, blood drenched fury wholly lacking from most music today."
-The Other Paper - Various

Feeling a bit camera shy


From the epicenter of the rust belt’s drain-spiraling unemployment pit, Ohio’s Murder Your Darlings deliver thier rock and roll with unsmiling venom. It’s the kinda rock best served through the one functioning speaker in the car with one headlight still working on the way to another place where you will not, cannot, and never will, find work. Formed from the ashes of Ohio's two loudest bands (The Vincents and The Igniters), MYD have been amazing audiences throughout the midwest for the past two years. Their debut CD displays the darkness of the downtrodden working man and an entire generation of southern rockers, then skronks it up with northern hardcore punk nihilism, and a ladeling of mid-west noise-rock buzzsaw gravy. Murder Your Darlings churns out the brand of twangy metallic rock favored by the Jesus Lizard, Nirvana, The MC5, and Black Flag. With two guitars harmonizing note-for-note throughout this debut, the boys have come to play, slay, and prey. This may be the first you’ve heard from ‘em, but damn sure will not be the last. Murder Your Darlings weighs in heavily, thunderously, unflinchingly. Get in and ride.
