DESTROYER 666并不是一个高产的乐队，但是他们的作品素质是有目共睹。他们凭借自己的实力赢得了欧美国家以及世界各地乐迷对于澳洲乐队的尊敬。 提到澳洲的极端金属音乐，每一个人都会很自然想到DESTROYER 666。乐队风格也一直有微小变化，本身经历了从Black Metal到Blackend Death Metal，到2002的的Brutal Thrash风格的转化，都非常成功。很多老乐队在软化或者变味，DESTROYER 666依然保持了金属的本色，而且不断进步！
Melbourne, Australia's subtlety-free Destroyer 666 originated as a one-man black metal project from the imaginatively named K.K. Warslut (aka Keith Destroyer, formerly of pioneering Ozzie Satanists Bestial Warlust). Following 1995's solo-recorded Violence Is the Prince of This World, additional members Shrapnel (guitar), Bullet Eater (bass, aka Phil Gresik of Hobb's Angel of Death and Bestial Warlust fame), and Ballistic Howitzer (drums) filled out the band's ranks for 1997's sophomore Unchain the Wolves, by which time Destroyer 666 had also adopted the clever slogan: "Australian and Antichrist." Three years passed before the band finalized its third album, Phoenix Rising, which brought punchier thrash and death metal elements to the mix, and greatly heightened their profile, being their first international release via the Season of Mist label. The same was true of 2002's Cold Steel...for an Iron Age, but after the next year's Terror Abraxas EP, Destroyer 666 seemed to lose a little steam, and have yet to record again.
