Red Fang can now hold the title of Night Destroyer in two separate ways
Since their self-titled debut album saw release in 2009, Red Fang have made quite the name for themselves through their own brand of rifftastic metal. Smelling distinctly of beer, sweat, and foul breath, the quartet have carved a raucous reputation as a band that prioritizes fun above all else. If you’re unfamiliar with their music, then maybe you’ve seen one of their ridiculous music videos involving all sorts of metal inspired antics – many of which are influenced by or involve copious amounts of – you guessed it – beer.
Red Fang’s third album Whales & Leeches, released last year, earned the band further acclaim and attention but apparently the band aren’t happy with just releasing music. Now, their carnage filled shenanigans will be making their way to your mouths (and subsequently, your bathrooms), with their aptly named “Night Destroyer” hot sauce. That’s right kids; Red Fang want to extend that party in your ears to a party in your mouth.
Joking aside, it makes sense for a band like Red Fang to collaborate with bespoke sauce company Tears Of Joy in creating their very own sauce. Believe it or not, they’re not the first riff focused band to do so - The Sword released their very own Tears Of Fire hot sauce through the same company, and they’re a best seller. Red Fang will have seen this and clearly hope to see similar success with their product. Of course, if you don’t have a credit card, or are paranoid enough to not want to enter your details online, you can pick up a bottle directly from the band when they tour near you – so there’s that.
For the sauce aficionados among you, feast your eyes on the published ingredient list:
Tomatillos (whole tomatillo, water, citric acid and salt), apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, red onion, red bell pepper, garlic, chiles (pequin, naga jolokia, guajillo, arbol), salt, white pepper.
In all honesty, that means very little to me, but then I’ve never been that into my sauces. If you’re a fan of the band and hot sauce – and those ingredients don’t gross you the hell out, then there’s no reason not to try a bottle for the measly sum of $8 from the Tears Of Joy website.
If any of you do try it, be sure to let us know how it tastes!
