The Sin Destroyers aren't your average religious rockers. Unlike Creed or Jars of Clay, there's definitely humor in their hubris. Perhaps that's how they get away with calling themselves "The World's Christianest Rock Band." Think The Darkness if Justin Hawkins was looking to Jesus rather than 70s glam rock for inspiration.
According to their press sheet, Sin Destroyers were born when God set out to create "a rock band so righteous the forked tail of Satan would fearfully slither betwixt his hooves." The brainchild of frontman, Tyler Walker and guitarist Peter Squires, Sin Destroyers formed in fall 2004 and have since won fans all over the city.
Rounding out the group are Andy Kennedy on lead guitar, Mike DiBenedetto on bass and Dave Smilow on drums. While Walker's thunderous presence can't be denied, the rest of the band certainly doesn't hide in the shadows. Instead, they pull out classic stage moves more likely learned from Ratt than at a revival. The result is a raucous good time, which is likely how they made The Village Voice's 2005 Best of NYC list as the "Best Band Jesus Would Do."
Sin Destroyers are playing this Saturday night (1/14) at the Trash Bar in Williamsburg, NYC with their pals from DC, the Plastic Containers. Your $7 admission pays for open bar. You can't beat that. For more information on Sin Destroyers, visit their website: http://www.sindestroyers.com.
