The original ink drawing has been created by Zbigniew M. Bielak. The Polish artist and architect has won applause and recognition in the metal scene through his works for bands such as GHOST, MAYHEM, and WATAIN among many more.

Regarding his drawing for 'Wildfire', 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. 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."

"Wildfire" comes with the eponymous track and eight other songs such as "Traitor", "Live and Burn", and more titles to be revealed in full later.

DESTRÖYER 666 have already announced a show at the prestigious Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore, MD (US) end of May 2016 and the band is working on a tour in South America during early 2016 and Australian dates soon afterwards.

Biography

D666estersegarra_2869_small

DESTRÖYER 666 have no need to prove anything. The band originally starting out as a solo project of BESTIAL WARLUST guitarist KK in Australia in 1994 has already delivered four highly acclaimed and influential albums that cemented their excellent reputation within the metal scene.

Now 'Wildfire' makes a complete fist that goes straight into your face. These nine heavy hymns are made of the essence of metal. There is no core, no post, no bullshit on this album – just great hard hitting song. Each track is hammered out rough and gritty, yet at the same time they all are intelligently arranged and massive in sound.

The term "old school" applies to a point, but without any clinging to simple nostalgia. DESTRÖYER 666 have nothing in common with a bunch of kids trying to emulate the eighties, but live and breathe metal since that golden age of hard music.

With their debut album 'Unchain the Wolves' (1997), DESTRÖYER 666 quickly gained international attention. The band followed up with the even stronger 'Phoenix Rising' (2000), which saw the Australians relocating to Europe in order to satisfy the soaring demand for touring and festival shows. After a round of line-up changes, their third full length 'Cold Steel... For an Iron Age' (2002) again took the scene by storm. After a hiatus caused among other issues by disenchantment with the business, DESTRÖYER 666 returned with the crushing 'Defiance' to climb to a new peak in 2009.

Now, the band around mastermind KK unleashes 'Wildfire' with nine burning tracks that will hunt you down like a pack of fiery wolves. DESTRÖYER 666 deliver metal at its best – made powerful by an unbroken and unrelenting spirit. No compromise!
