DESTRÖYER 666 will release a crushing new EP on February 23rd, 2018 via Season of Mist. ‘Call of the Wild’ contains three brand new songs and a fresh take on their classic and live-favourite, “Trialed by Fire”.
DESTRÖYER 666 continue to do what they are best at: kicking ass and hammering out heavy metal that is slamming straight into the face. No compromise, no sell out, no bullshit! The Australians fill the gap between albums with the hard-hitting EP, ‘Call of the Wild’ that comes with a distinct taste of an unrepentantly classic flavour.
DESTRÖYER 666 don’t do whiny nostalgia but simply stick to their old school roots, which are reaching straight down into the golden age of metal while allowing themselves to sound fresh and remain relevant. The band originally started out as a solo project of BESTIAL WARLUST guitarist KK in Australia in 1994. As early as with debut album ‘Unchain the Wolves’ (1997), fast-tracked towards international acclaim. The even stronger second full-length, ‘Phoenix Rising’ (2000) had the Australians relocating to Europe to be able to satisfy the soaring demand for touring and festival shows. After a round of line-up changes, third full length ‘Cold Steel… For an Iron Age’ (2002) cemented the band’s excellent reputation. After a hiatus caused among other issues by disenchantment with the business, DESTRÖYER 666 returned with ‘Defiance’ in 2009 and followed up on this success with the rough and gritty ‘Wildfire’ seven years later that saw them touring and performing at all the relevant metal festivals worldwide on a regular basis again.
