Destroyer of Death is the first single from Martin Simson’s DESTROYER OF DEATH, a project featuring Rob Rock (Project Driver, Impellitteri, Solo) and CJ Grimmark (Narnia, Rob Rock, Empire 21). A modern take on classic melodic metal, the song is packed with heavy rhythm guitars, searing solos and soaring vocals.
Martin Simson is a long-time heavy metal fan and musician, having played bass in several bands in southern California during the 1980s. He recently began writing music and lyrics, some of which caught the attention of guitar legend and friend, CJ Grimmark. Rob Rock, also a mutual friend, agreed to do the lead vocals, and Destroyer of Death was born.
Martin hopes the song will be well received enabling him to continue to create music and work with other iconic musicians.

”It’s over in a flash of 3 minutes and 47 seconds. And that’s the only thing that sucks about this single – it’s only one song! Thank goodness for the conveniently-located play button. Repeat! Repeat! Repeat! This collaboration between Simson and his uber-talented friends (Grimmark and Rock) was an idea of delight. I can’t wait to hear what’s next on the horizon, which is rumored to be other guest musicians. Bring it, Martin!”

”The song oozes melodic raw power, as Rob Rock’s vocals are a complimented with inspiring riffs, keyboard elements and CJ’s blistering prowess on guitar and thought-provoking solo’s, you can obviously hear his ultimate trademark sound which can create any excitement for the efforts that he keeps delivering.”

”If this track is a sample of what is to come with a full-length album, there is some great promise with some talented musicians and songwriting with catchy hooks. New ventures are great to bring fresh blood onto the music scene; I hope that Martin Simson’s Destroyer of Death decides to continue to pursue their new ideas.”
