King Of Kings/Lord Of The Wild

Rated 3.73/5 (74.67%) (15 Votes)

Deströyer 666 can only release so many full-length albums so I decided to pick up this EP to satisfy my need for more Australian satanic onslaught. This 7" EP contains only two songs but still contain more destructive power than many full-length albums out there! Both songs have a sound that approaches more the Unchain The Wolves era than the more refined Phoenix Rising. I'd even go as far as draw some parallels with their debut album, Violence Is The Prince Of This World - at least production-wise. The sound here is anything but clean, very raw, maybe a little bit too much in fact. Nah just kidding. Anyway, what you get here are two songs like only Deströyer 666 can make them - fast, brutal, raw black/death metal with some thrash influences thrown in, and sick vocals. Great stuff! Those who found Phoenix Rising to be a little too well-produced will definitely be well served by this short yet excellent EP!
