Le Max de l'ombre. 29 ans. Rédacteur en chef de Horns Up (2015-2020) / Fondateur de Heavy / Thrash Nostalmania (2013)

Le groupe d'origine australienne Deströyer 666 (Black/Thrash Metal) a dévoilé l'artwork de son prochain opus, visible ci-dessous.
Il s'intitulera « Wildfire » et sortira le 26 février 2016 chez Season of Mist.
Plus d'informations sont à venir.

Notons que l'artwork est signé Zbigniew M. Bielak (Ghost, Mayhem, Paradise Lost, etc).
Le commentaire (en anglais) de l'artiste polonais est à lire ci-dessous.

"Contrary to the usual route, part of my family fled communism to Australia. Thus my isolated cousins used to send me tapes with weird OZ bands like ARMOURED ANGEL, MARTIRE or HOBBS instead of American thrash. There has to be something about the shackled bloodline or maybe the Mad Max thing...or just what frontman KK likes to call "...our innate ability to do everything better than the others", but damn me if all of those Australian bands were not just fiercer than everyone else. My love for metal from down under endured and finally, after countless merchandise designs and three reissue collaborations, 'Wildfire' is DESTRÖYER 666's first brand new album that I have worked on. What survived from the usual brainstorming ordeal is a nod to classic metal imagery in a biker-friendly, DANZIG meets BLASPHEMY vein - a refreshing and welcome exercise in simplicity. Having outlasted retro trends, stripped of all gimmickry right to their very rock n' roll bone, DESTRÖYER 666 stand tall, hailing both SLAUGHTER LORD and ANGRY ANDERSON, with what is in my opinion their most unforced and classy album to date."
