EYE OF THE DESTROYER
is an American death metal band based out of Union County, New Jersey. Formed on Halloween in 2013, the group mixes blast beats, slam riffs, and guttural vocals to create a consistently heavy sound. Lyrics that paint a nightmarish hellscape reminiscent of early exploit films, 80’s horror and American grindhouse cinema.
The members of Eye of the Destroyer were originally inspired by death metal bands like Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, Gorerotted, Exhumed, Skinless, and Deicide, as well as thrash bands such as Slayer and Pantera. Drawing heavily from horror fiction, horror films, and religion their album artwork is sacrilegious, blasphemous and controversial.
METHODS OF MURDER, the new full length album from Eye of the Destroyer is out now. The album was recorded by guitarist Chris Halpin and produced by Eye of the Destroyer. The band shot a music video for their single, DEFILE THE EXPIRED with director Jeffrey Moore of Axtravaganza Films.
