Formed in 2012 from constantly boiling musical cauldron that is Austin, TX, Destroyer of Light has taken a straight forward approach to tempering the disparate and harmonious parts of their influences into a total sum of slow motion tidal heaviness that bows to no altar but that of the riff. With the smoky flavors of hazed out doom and the stomping cadence of rock’s heyday, the band both tickles and deafens the ears with the theatrical flashes of Mercyful Fate, the ominous tones of Electric Wizard, and the ferociously feral feedback of a Sleep dirge.
Having released a self-titled EP and a live recording, Destroyer of Light hit the road and spread their interpretation of the heavy gospel all across the U.S. before hitting the studio in late 2013 to record their newest EP, entitled ‘Bizarre Tales Vol.2’. Released in January 2014, this sophomore effort was called “The perfect sludge/stoner/doom metal album for Halloween” by The Sludgelord, this most current release has taken Destroyer of Light to new towns and cities along the road they call good times and the love of music. As the fall of 2014 approaches, the band will be on tour throughout October and November in the midst of writing new material for their third recording.
