Official press release:
Season of Mist are proud to announce the re-signing of Australia’s Deströyer 666. The influential metal legends are set to record later this July. Their forthcoming album promises a return to their thrashing roots.
Regarding their re-signing, Deströyer 666 mastermind KK comments:
“Believing it is preferable to go with the devil you know, Deströyer 666 have signed for our next album with Season of Mist.”
Season of Mist CEO, Michael Berberian adds:
“Even though they are not the most easy to deal with, re-signing Deströyer 666 is something I really wanted. When you operate in the metal scene, you sometimes need to face the real bad boys. This is not about playing safe.”
Deströyer 666 have already announced several festival appearances this summer and beyond. See below for the dates.
9/04 – Vaires-Torcy, FR | Fall of Summer Festival
10/09 – Bucuresti, RO | Club Fabrica (Old Grave Festival)

Deströyer 666 are currently working on a tour in South America during mid-January 2016 and Australian dates soon afterwards.
No strangers to the scene, KK and Deströyer 666 are back spitting fire, venom, and vitriol!
Set to record late this July, their forthcoming album promises a return to their thrashing roots – with a healthy dose of heavy metal sensibilities thrown in for good measure.
When asked, why the delay between albums, KK responded:
“I have been busy with what every red blooded headbanger wants to do, tons of sex, drugs, and heavy metal – just a lot more from all of it than I had planned. Well, now I have taken a break from such things to finish the album, deal with wankers, and start gigging again.”
Currently Deströyer 666 are getting ready for their next heavy and hard strike!
