...dark tunes...

Destroyer of Light
Doom
Austin, TX


Austin-based doom band, Destroyer of Light, formed in the beginning of 2012. Each member coming from different bands wanted create slow, heavy, riff-induced music and bring it to the masses. Gathering influences from a variety of different styles, each member brings their flavor to the table, and the music speaks for itself. Destroyer of Light is a 4-piece band consisting of Steve Colca on guitars/vocals, Keegan Kjeldsen on lead guitar, Mark Mars on bass, and Kelly "Penny" Turner on drums. 

As of now, a Self-Titled EP has been released for distribution digitally and soon vinyl providing 6 songs. With this release, they plan to tour, share, and promote the music in anyway possible. May the power of the riff compel you!

"2012 was the year that Destroyer of Light formed in Austin, TX. DoL is a big fan of the heavy riff and making sure that it isemphasized and incorporated. Each member brings a unique element to the band comprising Steve (guitar/vocals), Keagan (guitar), Mark (Bass), and Penny (Drums). Together, they plan to be a powerful force in Texas music scene! The power of the riff will compel you!"

"...Destroyer of Light play through many styles...they mix their colour's with finest classic doom (Saint Vitus, Candlemass), sludge parts, slow doom stuff like Weedeater or Sleep...One does not know this album...boredom...it's a great piece of high quality music...true heavy doom straight from Texas...My favourite song's: "Asteroid" (this great slow mo riff's and the dark atmosphere, awesome), 
"Greet Death" (a well-behaved black sabbath style riff at the beginning, reminds me sometimes on Black Pyramid). On the whole, a good first album but there is more..."

thanks to the mighty
Steve
