Lotus is able to encapsulate a small piece of their cathartic live shows on the studio version of Destroyer. The composition draws inspiration from American post-rock and 70s Krautrock with dual distorted guitars slowly building over a driving beat. The force of destruction is one of transformation here – the music is not mournful, it is celebration and release.
