      Destroÿer 666's first album (1997).

      Appropriating a pointless heavy metal umlaut from Queensrÿche, Melbourne's Destroÿer 666 peaked with this first release, which harks back a decade to the early, thrash-influenced black metal of Bathory, exemplified by the album 'Blood Fire Death.' With its Satanic themes, dingy keyboards and catchy, plodding tempo, this is black metal in its original and best style, led by the talents of Bestial Lust's K.K. Warslut (perhaps not his real name).

      This album encapsulates everything that was great about early Bathory, which bizarrely works equally well in Australia as it does in frosty Sweden, from the tomb-like atmosphere of the introduction to 'Genesis to Genocide' and the instrumental outro 'Onward to Arktoga' to the distinctly Quorthon-style verse vocals of the speedier 'Australian and Anti-Christ.' Warslut's guitar performance exceeds itself in every consecutive song before peaking in the apocalyptic 'Tyranny' and creative 'Six Curses from a Spiritual Wasteland,' and anyone with an interest in old-school black metal should consider this an essential purchase, even if it came ten years too late and from the wrong side of the planet.

      1. Genesis to Genocide
      2. Australian and Anti-Christ
      3. Satan's Hammer
      4. Tyranny
      5. Six Curses from a Spiritual Wasteland
      6. Unchain the Wolves
      7. Damnations Pride
      8. Onward to Arktoga
