New Song Premiere: DESTRÖYER 666's 'Live And Burn'

Renegade black/thrash maniacs DESTRÖYER 666 return with their long-awaited new manifesto, "Wildfire", due on February 26 via Season Of Mist. With "Wildfire", the band delivers one of 2016's most forceful heavy metal albums. Anthemic tracks such as "Traitor", "Live and Burn", "Hounds At Ya Back" and the title track are feral, full-on ragers that hunt you down, give no quarter, and leave nothing but ash in their wake.

"Wildfire" track listing:

01. Traitor
02. Live And Burn
03. Artiglio Del Diavolo
04. Hounds At Ya Back
05. Hymn To Dionysus
06. Wildfire
07. White Line Fever
08. Die You Fucking Pig
09. Tamam Shud

The song "Live And Burn" can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below.

The original ink drawing for "Wildfire" was 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.

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" is available for pre-order at this location.
