DESTROYER OF LIGHT Announces Tour Dates


Following a successful summer run on the West Coast, doom metal alchemists Destroyer of Light are set to undertake another tour in support of its Bizarre Tales Vol. 2 EP. Dubbed the Howlin’ Across America Tour ’14, the band  will spend a month on the road and visit 32 cities.   The Heavy Friends Records-sponsored tour starts in their home town Austin, Texas and reaches out to nearly every region in the United States.


On October 17, Destroyer of Light travels to The District Tavern in Tucson, Arizona to play Southwest Terror Fest.  Goatsnake, Sunn 0))), Neurosis, Pelican and Author & Punisher are a few of the bands billed to play the four-day festival.


The band comments: “We are super excited about this tour and hitting some new cities that we haven’t played before. Also, this is the biggest tour that we have done; so, it is a very exciting feeling to go out and accomplish this.”

Like zombies moaning for brains, the critics can’t get enough of Bizarre Tales Vol. 2Heavy Planet.net describes the band’s sound as “Blending Candlemass wail with well placed death growls, Destroyer of Light bridge the gap between traditional metal and the more extreme sub genres. Referring to the song “Forbidden Zombi Ritual,”  Doomantia.com ghoulishly exclaims, “I was seriously expecting to look off my balcony and see the dead rising from the ground ready to chew on flesh!”  “This is the perfect Sludge/Stoner/Doom Metal album for Halloween,” positively states The Sludgelord.


Erik Bredthauer created a Tales From the Crypt style animated video for the single “Forbidden Zombi Ritual” taken from Destroyer of Light’s Bizarre Tales Vol. 2 EP.  Go HERE to watch the video.
