Today, January 29th, 2021, American metal project “Martin Simson’s Destroyer of Death” featuring Rob Rock & CJ Grimmark release their debut single entitled ‘Destroyer of Death’. The single is released via JONO Music (Sweden) and Sound Pollution Distribution.

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.
