“Destroyed” by Snakedocters is a new rock song that portrays how horrible things can become in life at times.
Snakedoctors are four friends who started the band in Gdansk, Poland, in May 2020. After their birth, they have released twenty-two singles (including a Christmas special and a song in Czech under the name Jiri Blaha & Framuga Boys) and four albums: “Obligation,” “Joy Free Bowl,” “Mellow Joy,” and “Four and a Half.” Albums charted at Poland’s Empik Top 100 Rock, iTunes Top 100 Rock, and one of the UK’s independent radio album charts. Their biggest hit single so far, “Close That Door,” has been number one for over 30 weeks in Poland at Radio Olsztyn Top 40 and also at Radio Ostrowiec Top 20. That success was followed by “Too Many” at no. 1 at Radio Olsztyn Top 40 and also at Radio Ostrowiec Top 20, as well as “Crime Story” at no. 2 at Radio Ostrowiec Top 20. Another one, “Got Him Another Girl,” reached number one in the radio airplay chart for Central America (CMEAN).
“SnakeDoctor” lasted for a few weeks on the Japan YouTube Top 100 Songs chart and at No. 2 in the radio airplay-based chart in Central America. “Friday Night” is charted on one of the Spotify charts in the United States (Local Pulse, LA). Snakedoctors’ singles have charted on Poland’s iTunes Rock Top 100 (many of which reached number one) and one of the UK’s indie radio charts (including four number ones—”A Song,” “Tinder Girl,” “Crime Story,” and “Wuss“), as well as other radio charts in the United States, Columbia, Ecuador, and Peru. Snakedoctors’ songs get airplay in many countries worldwide and on five continents. The same applies to the reviews that their albums and singles receive.
Previous albums featured a slew of outstanding artists and producers such as – Joe Gibb (Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Kinks, Jane’s Addiction, Stone Roses, and The Mission), Kevin Paul (also Depeche Mode and the Kinks and also with Yazoo, Erasure, and David Bowie), regulars from Abbey Road Studios (Chris Bolster) and Metropolis Studios (Andy “Hippy” Baldwin), Corey Coffman from band Gleemer, Corey Alley (Hobbit Hole Records), Matt Gerhard of Spoon, Dawid Gorgolewski of Osso Studio (Poland), and Tom Queyja (The Lip Studio), a longtime friend of Snakedoctors’ leader who produced songs for his former US band (the Implants, formerly known as the Shriners) album.
Their videos were filmed in Poland, Ukraine, Germany, and Indonesia. They also like to invite guests, and their songs are featured, to name a few: Catlea (US), Vistory Vizhanska (Ukraine), Christine Corless (US), and Ada Nike (Poland).
Their new 2023 album, with the working title “Waiting For,” will bring more great songs and feature many surprise guest appearances and producers they had a chance to work with. It will be out in the first half of 2023. As they say, they play music because it’s fun. The Polish rock band Snakedoctors have recorded a new version of their old song “Destroyed,” featuring a guest drummer, Nik Hughes from the rock band “Bush,” which was released on December 23, 2022. The new single version is still titled “Destroyed.” The mixing was done by Marshall Gallagher, a producer and leader of Teenage Wrist, and the mastering touch was done at Howie Weinberg Mastering. Howie is a legend who made most of the important music of all genres (mostly rock) in the last 30–40 years.
The song is about how sometimes things in life become really bad. There’s also a new video for the song, filmed in Serbia. “Destroyed” is the first single of the new album coming out in the first half of 2023 with more guest artists, producers, and good music. The band’s music is the result of a cold wave with quite a strong grunge influence. And this combination is so intriguing that it’s hard to break away from the album. Despite the rough sound and the slightly turpistic atmosphere, this music draws the listener into an intriguing state and keeps them there even after the album is turned off. Very clear melodies and synths are of great importance for a soothing reception of the band’s music. They soften the aforementioned roughness, they make the tracks differ from each other, and they are so easy to listen to. I must also add here that the band does not spare us a lot of interesting guitar licks and solos. And this also makes Snakedoctors’ material diverse, interesting, and addictive.
