Moon Destroys (Ex-Torche, Etc.) Debut “Blue Giant”, Mastodon’s Troy Sanders Guests


Moon Destroys have announced a March 27th release date for their aptly named debut EP, “Maiden Voyage“, via Brutal Panda Records. Featuring Juan Montoya (MonstrO/Killer Be Killed, ex-Torche) and Evan Diprima (Brother Hawk, ex-Royal Thunder), the outfit have premiered a new track titled “Blue Giant” below. That song features a guest turn from Mastodon bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders.

Speaking of Sanders‘ involvement in the track, Montoya told Kerrang!:

“…Troy’s brother Kyle used to be in [Monstro] with me. We worked in the same music store, so they would always invite me to family parties and Thanksgiving because I couldn’t go all the way back home to Miami. We’re family.

So with Troy, I felt comfortable to ask him. We did Killer Be Killed together. So I hit him up one day and asked him to do this song. I gave him the title, and gave him the idea of giants in space, some kind of sci-fi thing. He gave it a twist of giant whales, returning home, swimming through the galaxy.”

Sanders isn’t the only guest lined up for the band’s 5-song EP. Cynic vocalist/guitarist Paul Masvidal will also make an appearance on the track “Stormbringer“.
