Destrophy is a well-established 4 piece hard rock / metal machine based
out of central Iowa. The band was officially launched in 2002 by
producer and singer/songwriter Ari. The story goes that Ari scoured
the state and recruited only the most talented, success-minded,
musicians to help him bring his brain child to fruition. The result
is an impressive line-up including Ari, guitar and vocals, Phil T.
bass, Joe Fox on drums, and Bruce Swink, former member of Roadrunner
Records, Stone Sour and DownTheSun, on guitar.
The band is currently playing select shows throughout the Midwest in
support of their new CD, The Way of Your World.? The CD sold out of
its first pressing in just 8 weeks with ecstatic praise from fans
and industry insiders alike. In addition to the new CDs world class
audio production and impeccable musicianship, it's undoubtedly the
memorable song writing and pop/rock vocal sensibilities that
continue to build and sustain the buzz surrounding Destrophy.
Destrophy has secured a solid foothold as one of the brightest
contenders in the modern independent music industry. The bands
catchy signature sound and dominating live shows continue to draw
large crowds and enthusiastic responses from their continually
growing fan base, both here in the US and overseas. Additionally,
Destrophy has a long standing reputation of notable accomplishments
including heavy rotation on multiple Midwest radio stations,
dominating The Battle of the Rock Bands on Iowas 93.X Rock FM and
compiling a tight knit fan base built up by networking and
aggressive grass-roots marketing. All this and making themselves
accessible to fans is what the band takes so much pride and sense of
accomplishment in each time they take the stage.
As demand for the band's recordings and live shows grew, Destrophy
teamed up with Damon Moreno of The Inner Light Agency to work as the
band's marketing and development director. The core principles of
my band management style is to keep all the wheels turning in the
right direction says Damon. I honestly believe in Destrophy, I feel
this is bigger than any of us truly realize.
Simply stated Destrophy is a well-oiled, business oriented machine.
The members of the band and their representation are long-time
friends and have stood by the decision to avoid the industry's
traditionally corrosive elements and temptations such as senseless
internal conflict and substance abuse. The true focus is on creating
high energy, inspiring music with huge commercial potential!
Destrophy and The Inner Light Agency are currently pitching the new
material to record labels and are ultimately seeking a suitable
match to host the band. Destrophy is looking forward to a prosperous
