Use Once and Destroy is the first release from the sludge metal band Superjoint Ritual. The guitar and bass work was done by Phil Anselmo and Eyehategod's Jimmy Bower. Drumming was performed by Joe Fazzio. For touring bass duties, Superjoint Ritual recruited Hank Williams III. Anselmo did not want to play bass live because he wanted to focus mainly on singing. Use Once and Destroy is a slightly different approach to music than the work of Pantera, one of Phil Anselmo's other bands.
Use Once and Destroy is an album that's hard to approach for me. I discovered this project by Phil well after its demise and pretty much liked it the moment I heard it. Maybe it's because I've taken a liking to Phil and what he's done for the metal world. Superjoint Ritual - 9/10. The last 2 songs are demos, Starvation Trip turns into "Waiting for the Turning Point", which is on A Lethal Dose of American Hatred. Don't Even Use Once, Just Destroy - 20%.

Jimmy Bower describes Superjoint Ritual as "witnessing a bad car accident". I find this statement to be pretty apt, since this album is the perfect auditory accompaniment to a 3 day bourbon bender, interspersed with constant weed sessions, fist-fights and junk food. The sludgy and at-times, out of tune guitars fuse with break-neck rhythm changes that flawlessly combines off-time jarring shots with half-time grooves and old school thrash beats. The music itself is essentially a combination of early Melvins, Slayer, Agnostic Front, and Black Flag. Lots of stops and starts, guitar feedback, and half-time. This is far from unique in todays metal market, and begs the question, "what DOES make this album worth listening to"" The answer is chemistry.
