Destroyer Of Light signs with Argonauta Records

Austin (Texas) Destroyer Of Light  is now part of Argonauta Records family!
 
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.
