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’).

    "Violence is the prince of this world surely has Blasphemy vibe. And it's a great fucking record. " Krvoslednik : listen to Bestial Warlust if you don't know them then. You won't be disappointed (KK's previous band). I always thought that "Violence is the prince" sounds a bit like "Vengeance War 'Till Death" (first album from Bestial Warlust, which I love...)

    The problem there is SlaveOfN1L, that they're not at all a "blasphemy/beherit/fago" type band. None of those bands had the melodic type groove that Destroyer has, which has gained them the fame they have.

    I haven't listened to a destroyer 666 record that is not a work of art. This band can't do no wrong.
