Destroyer 666 was formed by guitarist K.K. Warslut following his
departure from the cult black metal band Bestial Warlust in 1995.
The debut, Violence Is The Prince Of This World, was essentially
recorded as a one-man band, with a proper band (including another
ex-member of Bestial Warlust, that being Bullet Eater) recruited
for the later albums.
Old-school black metal influences are quite evident on their latest
(and by most accounts, most developed) release, Phoenix Rising,
though there's a bit of death and thrash mixed in as well.
Image-wise, they forego the corpsepaint of the Norwegian bands in
favor of the classic studs/leather/spikes look.
Not the world's most original band, but they are brutal and vicious
in all the right places, and Phoenix Rising is a fine extreme
