Destroyer 666 - Defiance LP (Black vinyl)
Overall, Defiance is exactly the album fans have been waiting for after all this time. While it doesn’t offer any major leaps forward in style, it doesn’t have to. Destroyer 666 are merely refining everything that has made them great, from the epic leads to the scathing fist-pumping vocals. And yet still, instances like the soaring clean vocals in the background of “A Sermon To The Dead” reminds us that this is not a band content to sit on their laurels and release something we’ve all heard before. On Defiance, the band sounds fresh and furious, and yet still excels at all those elements that made us love them in the first place. Yes, we waited six years for this. And it’s fucking awesome.
