Pre-orders can be found HERE!
How legendary was the release of ‘Six Songs With The Devil’ you ask? Here are some famous words from KK himself on the album:
“Howd it all start? Tiring of being in Bestai Warlust I set out to record some songs I’d been messing with for a while.
Me and Vulcano on drums rehearsed for a coupla months and hit the studio. It was an instant mega success and sold out the original press of 120 copies in lightning speed.. Perhaps in less than 6 months.
But dont take my word for it. Listen to what others at the time had to say.
Joe Satriani once commented in Guitar Wank Mag that it was “the best god damned black thrash demo Ive ever heard and if I wasnt already a highly successful and wealthy guitar dork I’d join Destroyer in a second. If hed have me”
Yngwie Malmsteen said in Fretboard Tosser Magazine, that ” KK has redefined what it means to make death-thrash metal demo tapes, the mans a God damned genius and if I wasnt already a mega rock God making big bucks writing unlistenable music I’d join his outfit immediately. If hed have me”
And Lita Ford famously told Girls Stuff Magazine ” Hes a nuclear powered sex alien and me and my pal Joan Jett would both do him in an instant. At the same time”. “I think Doros also interested” she added. “

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!
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’ (2016) seven years later that saw them touring and performing at all the relevant metal festivals worldwide on a regular basis again. The Australians filled the gap between the latest albums with the hard-hitting EP, ‘Call of the Wild’ (2018) that comes with a distinct taste of an unrepentantly classic flavour.
The outlaws from down under deliver another pummelling and relentless lesson in aggression with full length number 6(66). ‘Never Surrender’ is a furious assault of black thrash, chainsaw riffs, and warlike drums, offering no moment of reprisal as it rages on for 40 unyielding minutes.
With this offering, DESTRÖYER 666 takes no prisoners!
