Biography

Melbourne, Australia (1994 – present)

Deströyer 666 are an Australian blackened thrash/death metal band formed in 1994 by guitarist K.K. Warslut, following his departure from the cult black metal band Bestial Warlust. Originally formed and located in Melbourne, Australia, the band now base themselves in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. To date, they have released four studio albums, the most recent being ‘Defiance’ in 2009.

Their sound can be described as a blend between black, thrash and death metal, although in recent releases, the band’s death metal edge has become more prominent. For example, the album ‘Unchain the Wolves’, considered to be their finest by many fans, has a less head-on and aggressive sound than later albums such as ‘Cold Steel… for an Iron Age’, which uses a more bombastic and hard-hitting tone. Their latest album, ‘Defiance’, was released on June 22nd 2009 through Season of Mist records.

Warslut formed the band following his departure from the cult black metal band Bestial Warlust. The project was a solo venture at first but eventually evolved into a proper band. The group’s debut EP, “Violence is the Prince of this World,” featured Warslut on guitar, bass and vocals, with Matt Skitz from Damaged and Criss Volcano from Abominator on drums. The song “The Eternal Glory of War” was later re-recorded for the album ‘Phoenix Rising’).

    I'm looking for the Unchain the Wolves LP first press (blue or white). Not the PLP! If you have it to trade or sell, PM me.

    I avoided listening to this band for a long time because of its frankly pathetic name, but this is actually one of the best blackened thrash bands I have ever listened to.

    The lead guitarist from Cruciamentum is taking Shrapnel's place in D666. Dude fucking shreds! A new album + actual tours are easily something we can look forward to in the foreseeable future!

    "seriously is this band thrash or black or blackened thrash? in metal archives they say its Black and thrash, not blackened thrash metal, i've listened to them and they sound black, so whats their thrash songs if they really play thrash" are you mentally disabled by chance? blackened thrash and black/thrash are the same thing, LOL. For the most part, thrash is evident in all their songs, I can't decide a favourite album but give "Cold Steel...For an Iron Age" a listen.

    Pretty much perfect metal band. It's amazing how melodic and catchy they can be and still sound so raw and, well, metal at the same time. On top of that, most of their songs have pretty damn epic feel without being overly bombastic.
