Awarded as the Best New Band of the Year at Latvian Metal Music Awards in 2011, and known as winners of couple of underground music contests in Latvia, Rebel Riot continue to fuse influences, such as early blues, classic jazz and rockabilly, into heavy rock'n'roll music, which allowed for them to be recognized as one of the most notable young rock bands not only in Latvia, but also in the neighbouring Baltic country of Lithuania. 'Having their 7th visit here, these musicians promise to cheer up the audience with their inexhaustible energy, and the feel of last Century's rock and roll music,' wrote Lithuanian Laikas.lt website earlier this year.
After spending three years in preparation for the release of their debut album Make A Mess back in 2010, Rebel Riot have visited cities and towns in Baltic States and Finland, urged by a motivation which is best described by frontman, guitarist and vocalist Bob Concrete in an interview to Latvian P3lican webzine: "To turn around and shock all the World! I love to watch people being amazed, and the shock in their eyes!" After the debut album was released, Neatkariga, one of the few major Latvia's newspapers, wrote: "At the moment this certainly is Latvia's No.1 Hard & Heavy band - there's been long time since we last heard a smash of such quality from our music of this genre."
Release of the new album is the next step for Rebel Riot in attempt to reach more audience. Band's lead guitarist Janis speaks about live experiences:
Destructive Chaos is another tribute to both, Rock And Roll and Heavy Metalculture by Rebel Riot. Kind hearted, good humour loving people as they are, they are determined to continue to 'do things that would make your heart beat faster, and make you feel better.'
