Format: Audio CD
This album is one of my favorite albums, on the turntable at least once a month. There are many artists that have contributed to making this album and it is also the first to feature Gaahl on vocals. The concept is obviously based on war, and inside the booklet / gatefold cover (if you buy the Vinyl edition) there are various images amongst pictures of barely readable war letters. The sound is very noisy, angry and loud from start to finish, with no instrumental / ambient tracks. It is an album that gets better with each listen, as fir a first time listener it can seem rather dull and repetitive.

The album has expertly done synthesizers, high pitched guitar feedback, and sound effects (and there is good use of them). Many of the tracks are very fast, such as The Devil, The Sinner and His Journey (my personal favorite) and Om Kristen og Jödisk Tru.

The first track (and also the cover title track), 'Destoyer' starts off very fast and noisy, with many distorted shouts, screams? from Gaahl, very fast guitars and drums that eventually ease down but it never loses an aggressive sound.

The second track 'Open the Gates' starts off with Infurnus playing a guitar without drums or vocals, then the song progresses has a rather slow pace compared to other tracks on the album.

'The Devil, The Sinner and His Journey' starts off very fast with synthesizers, constant drumming, distorted guitars and slow vocals, this continues throughout the entire track and then ends abruptly. An excellent track.

Format: Audio CD
Gorgoroth are without doubt one of the most important and influential bands outside the traditional big four of black metal (Darkthrone, Immortal, Mayhem and Emperor) but were very much part of this emerging scene in the early 90's due to their location and affiliations with many of these pioneering acts. Destroyer (or About How to Philosophize with the Hammer, 1998 ) is their fourth album and builds significantly on the promise and musicianship of their previous efforts. Importantly it was their first album for the Nuclear Blast label and this was crucial for both the increased exposure and distribution of the album and perhaps also the standard of the recording. Gorgoroth's unique sound, from their groundbreaking debut Pentagram (1994) through to their current release, has always remained uncompromising and true to the black metal ideal unlike the symphonic and theatrical excesses of some of the other major acts in the genre. For real fans this is both refreshing and welcome.

This album was vocalist Gaahl's first effort with Gorgoroth, although his distinctive tones are only heard on the opening title track. In fact, it is partly the vocals that make this album so unique and varied. The vocal duties were shared between 4 of the band members namely; Gaahl, Pest, T.Reaper and indeed Infernus himself. What makes this a classic black metal release is this sense of variation, resulting in the fact that both vocally and musically every song is unique and quite different. Every musician here is competent in their playing and most importantly they display creativity and inimitable ability in the composing and arrangement of the songs. Unlike many black metal albums the bass is quite high in the mix on some tracks.

Inhuman demonic slaughter. 7 May 2005
By Metal_fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the epitome of black metal, despite what others think. The production is violent and harsh and hectic, and the vocals spew pure venom. The hatred is here, and so is the extremely overwashed guitars. Sure, there are a few slow songs here and there (The Virginborn, Open the Gates) but they are good slow songs. Songs like "The Devil, The Sinner, And His Journey" and "Slottet I Det Fjerne" are pure pieces of nuclear speed chaos (though not as fast as Mayhem), and "Destroyer" and "Pa Slagmark Langt Mod Nordt" are pure demonic mayhem, as if the demons of hell are speaking through your speakers. It is no surprise, then, that those two are my favorites on this album.

And by the way, Telnes, Tiegs, and Kronenes are Tormentor, Infernus, and Pest. Did it ever occur to any of you that their real names aren't Tormentor, Infernus, and Pest? Yes, they all have civil names that they use to sign their checks and other stuff like that.

Either way, this album blows about 90% of all black metal albums away. And it doesn't do it with all that schmaltzy symphonic crap; they do it with pure rage and emotion and chaos. This album is a pinnacle of Gorgoroth, I think. I like it much better than Antichrist, Pentagram, and Incipit Satan.

What is going on here? 1 July 2004
By Cremisi North - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have read many reviews and heard many comments by the "true" black metal fans on various websites totally belittling this album. So having heard this I didn't purchase it right away. Man, am I ashamed. This is one fine slab of black metal that will be in my CD player for days on end. The music is superb (I would expect nothing less of the band.) And sure, they experiment around here and there, but that doesn't detract from the sheer listening pleasure that this album provides. The vocals are sick as all hell, the production is a great blend (good enough to blast at extreme volume levels, but still holds that necro-tinny sound that Gorgoroth is known for.) Don't be fooled by what many say, this album is definitely worth every penny. My favorite track at this point is song 2, Open the Gates.

Best of Both Worlds 10 Dec. 2006
By J. McHenry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As a guitarist catching up on my Metal, these guys are a recent suprise. This album manages to follow the strict rules of Black while including enough variation and detail work to make tracks distinguishable from one another (a problem with some artists). The vocals have much more personality than most recent Metal acts - who cares if you can scream for forty minutes, dude?! The sound is amazingly filthy, lo res and harsh, another requirement of pure Black Metal. The drums don't fall into those alternating snare-bass spazzouts that are so unimpressive. You also get the kind of scary chord progressions one expects. In short, I think this is a great Black album, maybe the best I've ever heard (better even than Transylvanian Hunger). So if you prefer Immortal to Mastodon, this is where you need to drop your cash.

By Ryan Harding - Published on Amazon.com

Buy all Gorgoroth albums to start with. I can't choose a favorite, but the one I seem to listen to most is this one. While the band remains the product of Infernus, various respected musicians within the Norwegian black metal scene from bands such as Satyricon, Trelldom, and Aeturnus contribute. DESTROYER assaults with its sheer rawness, initially seeming incoherent on songs like "The Devil...," "Destroyer," and "Blodofer." Initially; with repeated listenings it will make sense. It's such sheer extremity that makes this a real gem. The all out speed of tracks like "Devil" is balanced out by slower and subliminally melodic songs like "Open the Gates." This album intimidates many, but those who get acquainted with it will find that it destroys indeed.

Armageddon put to tape 24 Jan. 2007
By W. G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow. That's the first thing I could think to say when I first heard this bestial raid upon humanity. This is different from the three previous albums. While they retain much of their old style, new things begin to creep in here. First of all the production. It is industrial sounding to a point. By that I mean it sounds very dirty, chaotic and generally unpleasant. Also you will notice the use of more distinct melodies being brought into the forefront. Gorgoroth has always used highly original and beautiful melodies, but these are anything but beautiful. They are apocalyptic and just downright nasty. Everything just sounds so disjointed on this album. But that's where the real charm of this lies. It doesn't require linear sounding music for it to be brilliant. I'll be honest. This music is savage. It is barbaric and I wouldn't have it any other way! Black Metal is not supposed to be pretty. BM is hatred and that is exactly what is presented here.

New guitarist Tormentor is introduced here, as is vocalist Gaahl of Trelldom and Gaahlskagg fame (pick up their records too, they are just as good,) though he only sings on the first song (the title track, which also features a drum machine.) Infernus does guitar and bass on some songs, Frost provides drums on some as does Vrolok, and longtime vocalist Pest does the remainder of the vocals. This album was recorded during a period of four years (1994-1998.) The constant though is mastermind Infernus, founder, guitarist and primary songwriter of Gorgoroth. His riff work is still as stunning as ever I might add. Just for the record, here is the lineup for this record.

Vocals: Pest, Gaahl

Guitars: Infernus, Tormentor

Bass: Ares, T. Reaper

Keyboards: Daimonion

Drums: Frost, Vrolok

Anyway, enough of me rambling on about how great this is. Find out for yourself and buy this record. Help support Gorgoroth and all REAL Black Metal. Hail Satan!
