DESTROYER OF LIGHT play music that could be categorized as doom metal, they are very much a rock band.
Having just recently signed to Argonauta Records for a new album in 2019, Austin doomers DESTROYER OF LIGHT follow their 2017 long-player, "Chamber of Horrors" , with a further auditory assault in the lumbering EP "Hopeless".
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.
DESTROYER OF LIGHT consists of:
Steve Colca: Guitar/Vocals,
Keegan Kjeldsen: Guitar,
Penny Turner: Drums,
Nick Coffman: Bass.
