5. Getting In The Way
7. Choke The Falcon
8. Clinical Perfection
First forming in 2007, Disastroid carries on through the efforts of Enver Koneya (vocals/guitars), Travis Williams (bass), and Braden McGaw (drums) along with their love of Godzilla movies, EHX products, and the Man’s Ruin Records catalog. Since then, Disastroid is a staple and heralded force in their local heavy music community. Screen consists of songwriting from multiple derivatives of sub-genres in the heavy music world, making it difficult to narrowly classify these guys. Too fast to be sludge, not heavy enough for stoner rock, and too metal for grunge.

“For anyone that’s never heard these guys before, their genre bending music and tone is something a fan of Amphetamine Reptile Records would embrace.” – (New Noise Magazine)
“It’s not that Disastroid is particularly heavy, it’s just that when they hit…they hit hard!” – (The Sludgelord)
“Disastroid takes elements of sludge, noise rock, stoner, post-hardcore and fuzz, and successfully mixes these together to create a very attractive sound.” – (Echoes & Dust)
“If you ask Disastroid to describe themselves, they’ll probably shrug you off. Bring them your sludge-rock fans, metalheads and jaded hipsters. They’re not above or below you.” – (Thrasher Magazine)
Disastroid has toured up and down the West Coast performing alongside Eagles Of Death Metal, Fatso Jetson, Helmet, Church Of Misery, Saviours, Oxbow, Ides Of Gemini, and many more.
