More news regarding the album, including the details behind physical formats and several track premieres will be available in the weeks to come.

 

More below.

 

Regarding the album art, renowned artist Zbigniew M. Bielak comments, “Contrary to the usual route, part of my family fled communism to Australia. Thus my isolated cousins used to send me tapes with weird OZ bands like ARMOURED ANGEL, MARTIRE or HOBBS instead of American thrash. There has to be something about the shackled bloodline or maybe the Mad Max thing…or just what frontman KK likes to call “…our innate ability to do everything better than the others”, but damn me if all of those Australian bands were not just fiercer than everyone else. My love for metal from down under endured and finally, after countless merchandise designs and three reissue collaborations, ‘Wildfire’ is DESTRÖYER 666′s first brand new album that I have worked on.”Bielak continues, “What survived from the usual brainstorming ordeal is a nod to classic metal imagery in a biker-friendly, DANZIG meets BLASPHEMY vein – a refreshing and welcome exercise in simplicity. Having outlasted retro trends, stripped of all gimmickry right to their very rock n’ roll bone, DESTRÖYER 666 stand tall, hailing both SLAUGHTER LORD and ANGRY ANDERSON, with what is in my opinion their most unforced and classy album to date.”

Regarding the new album, DESTRÖYER 666 mastermind K.K. comments, “I have been busy with what every red blooded headbanger wants to do, tons of sex, drugs, and heavy metal – just a lot more from all of it than I had planned. Well, now I have taken a break from such things to finish the album, deal with wankers, and start gigging again.”DESTRÖYER 666 have already announced several festival appearances this year, including a performance at Maryland Deathfest 2016. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
