Biography

Nick Maldonado.
Tanner Sparks.
Marc Kohlbry.

Destroy the Runner was an American metalcore band from San Diego, California, United States. Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying managed them for their album Saints, and did so again with Jason Rudolph for their second album I, Lucifer.

There comes a time in every artist’s life in which he must find himself through his medium. He must pry himself from any hint of reliance upon others and their art, and embrace who he is and what he was born to create.

Such is the case for Destroy The Runner, and their sophomore effort, ‘I, Lucifer’. Much like Radiohead with ‘OK Computer’ or U2 with ‘Joshua Tree’, Destroy The Runner have birthed a giant with ‘I, Lucifer’. 2006 saw the release of their debut album ‘Saints’, and while a solid effort, the record did not point towards a band satisfied with their sound, but rather, one developing it. ‘I, Lucifer’ sees Destroy The Runner as a band fully realized.

“We realized very quickly after the release of ‘Saints’ that our musical passion had shifted” explains the band. “We knew we needed to do something on our own terms, regardless of what people thought or wanted to hear. We needed to be who we really were and make an album that reflected that.” That album, ‘I, Lucifer’, is set to change the face of aggressive music as we all know it. Full of an unbridled passion and energy, the album does not let up throughout its 11 tracks.
