listen to Destroyed In Seconds’ (very long) quarantine playlists
With the coronavirus pandemic keeping many of us home a lot more, we've been asking artists about the music they've been listening to in isolation, and this list comes from three members of LA metalpunks Destroyed In Seconds (aka D.I.S.), who released their killer third album Divide and Devour in April.
Vocalist Jon Tomala's 138-song, nearly-ten-hour playlist, titled "Jon's Black Lodge Boogie," contains tracks from artists such as Blood Orange, The Cure, Black Marble, Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy, Depeche Mode, New Order, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Post Malone, Madonna, and much more. And going along with the playlist's Twin Peaks-referencing title, it also includes "The Pink Room" from Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and Julee Cruise's "Falling." "[It contains] some of the stuff I've been listening to for years along with new discoveries," Jon says. "I can't live in a D-beat warzone all the time so this is what I've been mostly vibing to during this weird and stressful period."
Guitarist Christian LaRocca says his playlist, titled "CC's Quarantine," includes "my most played tracks since quarantine started, and it’s my usual mix of death metal for getting pumped, indie rock for getting mellow, and shred guitarists to hopefully learn something." The list includes tracks from artists such as Mortal Wound, Archers of Loaf, Neko Case, Killing Joke, and more.
If you thought Jon's playlist was long, guitarist Bruce Reeves's "Bruce's Big Time Bangers!" playlist includes 317 songs that clock in at nearly a full 24-hour day. It's almost entirely rooted in classic metal, with "big time bangers" by Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Twisted Sister, Ozzy Osbourne, Van Halen, Skid Row, L.A. Guns, Slayer, Misfits, Black Sabbath, and more.
