Editorial Reviews

Recorded with John Feldmann, (The Used, Panic at the Disco) who acted as much as a friend and mentor as he did producer, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows' debut is the most aggressive album Owens has made in his musical career, yet it still retains the keen sense of melody that has helped him become one of today's most celebrated frontmen. "It was so cathartic making this record because music is my form of therapy," he explains, "I can't wait to get out there and play these songs live because it'll get all those feelings out," he says.

From the electro-tinged anthem "If You Think This Song Is About You, It Probably Is" - which alternates between tuneful choruses and double-bass fueled breakdowns - to metallically charged arena-ready rockers like "The Only Thing You Talk About," Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows is teeming with sonic surprises that will undoubtedly satisfy Owens' legions of dedicated fans.

"These songs are so heavy that it's disgusting. Vocally it's melodic because as I grow older, I know I don't want to be a 30 year old screaming... that's just not who I am," Owens explains, adding that despite its electronic flourishes, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows is more of a rock band than any project he's ever previously played in. He's also quick to clarify that despite the success of his various side-projects, such as Cinematic Sunrise and Isles & Glaciers, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows is a full-time project for everyone involved. "This is the only band I'm in and I've quit everything else that I've worked on previously." He continues, "Everyone's wrapping up their past with their old bands, and we're going to move forward with this and not look back."

Lyrically, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows sees Owens at his most vulnerable. Instead of concentrating on wordplay as he's done in the past, this time around, he tried to be as open and direct as possible. "I stripped away all the metaphors and fanciness here so there was more substance," he states. "With this album and this band, I am being absolutely 100 percent honest; I'm not trying to outsmart or outwit anyone. It's just a chronicle of what I've been through." Owens stresses that the band's title is also part of that same underlying theme. "People stereotype the name and react a certain way when they first hear it, but the actual name for me is more about the acronym; it's about how your entire life can change in one day and you can destroy everything but you can also rebuild it."

I bought this only a few days ago but I have to say this cd is one of the absolute best things that Craig has ever done!!!! I'm so happy with this, I have been listening to this cd non-stop since I bought it. I think it's perfect the way that it is, and the songs are catchy, if you are debating on wether or not to buy this just stop debating it's awesome!!! I loved Craig in Chiodos, and like everything else he's ever been in and I was also a big fan of From First to Last too so when I heard they were teaming up I was pretty excited about this and the finished product is amazing.

I don't ever write reviews. Ever. But after years of sitting idly by I finally found the album that was worth me putting words down about it. I literally am unable to stop listening to it. I put other albums on but all I do is keep coming back to it over and over again. There is not one skippable track on this album. 38 straight minutes of super-riffing, chugging metal breakdowns, soaring pop choruses, and gorgeous vocal harmonies from one of the best vocalists out there. The amazing part is they mix all these elements into an infectious groove of tracks that don't last longer than 3 minutes each. Yes there will always be things to nitpick and complain about. The song structures don't change. The lyrics aren't super deep. But honestly, who cares? If you like good music this band will blow you away and that's all there is to it. So stop sitting around and get addicted to D.R.U.G.S.!

Pete knew what he was doing in December of 2009 when he reached out to Craig and Nick while performing with Cinematic Sunrise (actually Pete did a little playing on bass also). The band was built one player at home - but the man who sewed it together was the magical, John Feldmann. It was a new, renewed Craig Owens, who was on a crusade to make music again, his way. The music speaks for itself - the CD is well on its way to becoming one of the best alternative records of 2011. It's a tribute to the band that the music is so good, but also that D.R.U.G.S. is even better seen and heard live. The test for D.R.U.G.S. will be - can they do it again? Maybe 2012 will give us an answer. Chiodos was a special band with Craig as the frontman - this band is going places Craig never dreamed possible, three years ago. A special record!

It's been so long since I wrote a review of anything, anywhere... but I just couldn't resist letting everyone know how utterly amazing this album/band really is... I was an on/off Chiodos fan, but totally lost faith in them when they ousted Craig Owens (for unknown reasons, and judging by Craig's reaction, unfounded reasons!). And they all must be biting their tongues now... because this new band, with a stellar assembly of members (one could almost say its a super-band of sorts), has literally blown me away... and that is a statement coming from a guy who owns over 20,000 tunes and constantly plays his ipod on random, thereby rarely listening a new album from front to back and back again... I've had to stop listening to this album, which is on permanent loop on my ipod, so that I don't overdo it...

In short, musically, lyrically, this is truly some of the best rock I have heard in a long time... hats off to Mr. Owens and his new crew...! Keep it up!

Craig Owens is back, it's been awhile since we have heard anything from him musically, and I couldn't wait. This album amazes me from start to finish. This is an album you'll find having on repeat a lot. It was really sad that he was kicked out of Chiodos when he shouldn't of been. I seen Chiodos live back in 2007, and the live set was amazing. I love Craig's voice a lot, he sings great. I think D.R.U.G.S is going to be huge within a year or two. I personally think Craig made Chiodos, without Craig Chiodos won't do as well. It's refreshing to hear his voice again. I like the line up of this band, Craig Owens, Matt Good, and Nick Martin for the most part they have been in bands I've listed to a lot over the years. Buy this album you won't be disappointed. This is one of my favorite albums of 2011. My favorite songs on this album are:
1. Graveyard Dancing
2. Mr. Owl Ate My Metal Worm
3. Laminated E.T. Animal
4. The Hangman
5. The Only Thing You Talk About

Well, my girlfriend hasn't opened it yet, but the case was cracked even though I bought it brand new. I'm pretty disappointed.

I first heard about D.R.U.G.S. when they went on tour and opened for Hollywood Undead alongside with We Came As Romans and Borgore back in late 2011. When I first heard them on stage when they opened for H.U. I was blown away by this guy named Craig Owens and how his screams were epic and incredible. After researching about Craig Owens and D.R.U.G.S. I decided to pick up this CD just days later after going to that concert.

1. If You Think This Song Is About You, It Probably Is(5/5) Short song but a strong opener for the album and I loved the screams

2. Thed Only thing You Talk About (5/5) The Screams once again were on point and had a catchy chorus. This is the best song on the album IMO.

3. Graveyard Dancing (5/5) Too Epic to describe

4. Mr. Owl Ate My Metal Worm(5/5) A Song that made me cry and its for anyone whos suicidal and just wants to give up on life but you still manage to fight back and ignore what people against you have to say

5. Sex Life(5/5) Should be on the radio

The rest is for you to deicde if you like the album or not:

6. Laminated E.T. Animal (5/5)

7. Stop reading, Start doing pushups(5/5) Another short song but the screams were awesome

8. I'm The Rehab, you're The Drugs (5/5)

9. I'm here To Take The Sky(5/5)

10. The Hangman(5/5)

11. My Swagger Has A First Name (5/5)

I've been a diehard Drugs fan since 2011 and I am saddened that they have broken up and still don't know why to this day but to me this album is just perfect. I heard he went back to Chiodos but that band just isn't as memorable to me as D.R.U.G.S.
