And so Chicago’s darkest sons arise from their bestial slumber, bringing with them what has to be their mightiest offering yet: a nine-song sturm und drang of vile metallic devastation, unleashed like a plague to wreak misery upon the lives of men. Each and every song is delivered with thuggish brutality, ordered forth into battle by a series of infernal commands that have at their beck and call a diabolical hoard of Hades’ foulest denizens eager to hack, gouge and tear their way through fragile human meat and leave nowt but a bloody mess in their wake. From Celtic Frost-inspired terror to gurgling death rattles and right on through to the unstoppable doom of the seven-minute closing track, the Ultimate Destroyer is bleak, poseur-crushing metal incarnate – bow low before their throne or prepare to be vanquished!
