Watain & Destroyer 666 Phoenix, AZ March 18th 2018

Between the shitstorm that Destroyer 666 were a part of last year and the recent war between “edgy” (a borrowed description…) black metal bands defending against self-righteous keyboard justice warriors, I didn’t know what to expect at Watain and Destroyer 666’s Phoenix, Arizona date. Just a week earlier, Destroyer 666 was booted off their Bay Area date. Watain, showing support for their touring brethren, basically told the venue to go fuck themselves and pulled out of the date as well. Another venue had stepped up to host the show but inexplicably cancelled a few days later. In light of all this drama, Phoenix did not disappoint. There was no bullshit, no drama, only metal and Watain’s Disciples.

I have to admit, I’m not an avid listener of Destroyer 666, but I did want to check out what all the chatter was about that was filling up comment sections of several metal blogs in 2017. I thought they were solid, but their sound reminds me of early European thrash metal ala early Kreator. They didn’t blow my mind musically but the raw and intensity of their sound had massive appeal a couple of decades ago. For some, this style is fresh and new and turns their crank. For this writer, I was counting down the number of songs left of their 45-minute set.
