Born in Finland in 1982, Antero Koskikallio quickly found his way to the music scene, taking up guitar duties with the glam/punk outfit Plastic Tears at the ripe age of 17. Heeding the call to be a singer and frontman, Anzi Destruction (his preferred moniker these days) moved on to lead Finnish band Stereo Junks! in 2003. With a couple of gigs and a couple of albums under his belt, the time has now come for Anzi to make his presence felt worldwide.

Although a veteran – giving blood and tears for over ten years to the masses – High Clash Motherfucker marks Anzi’s first solo effort, and it is obviously his time to shine.

While known for his extravagant stage persona, Destruction has put together an album of stripped-down, raw, aggressive rock that is all on his shoulders. Anzi composed, produced and mixed the album on his own while also playing most of the instruments. The result is an energetic, visionary take on modern punk/rock/industrial/glam and whatever else he felt like throwing into the mix.

The instrumentation on the album is what you’d expect: loud crunching guitars, blasting drums, follow-me bass lines and the occasional electronic flash for good measure. But what really burns this album into your soul is Destruction’s vocals.

You get the impression that Anzi has shared a needle with every legendary frontman in rock, and kept a little of everyones DNA to himself. Through the 12 tracks, I was reminded of everyone from Iggy Pop, Scott Weiland, Axel Rose, and Billy Idol to Michael Monroe, David Johanson, Ian Brown, and Brian Connelly.

Anzi’s charisma is truly on parade here, as you get a total “live” vibe on each and every track – even though they are glossy with amazing production. You can almost envision each track being performed in front of a crowd, and for those of you with any experience of Anzi’s on-stage presence, you understand how incredible that can be.

Standout tracks include the balls-out romp of “Suicide Angels,” the industrial-heavy toned “Chemistry” (which was originally from the Stereo Junks! days), the ominous-yet-infectious “Dead Goddess”. and the album’s first single “Electric”. a dance hit which was originally performed by Swedish pop/rap sensation Leila K in the 90s. But don’t sleep on the rest of the album, as there is honestly not a bad track in the entire set.

Stylistic jumps from track to track usually end in disaster, but Anzi’s ability to tie the whole package together neatly is a credit to his production skills. You fully understand that you are being jerked back and forth throughout the album, but the whiplash is worth the experience as this is one of the most cohesive wild rides I’ve been on in a while.

With Destruction on the short side of thirty years of age, it’s obvious that we will be hearing plenty more from him. He’ll only get smarter, louder, and more proficient at his craft in the coming years, but he couldn’t have started a solo career any better.
