  Merge Records
Destroyer’s Rubies is a collection of shrewd pop music that takes no prisoners and asks no pardons.
However, in the fall of 2005 Destroyer did head out on the road for a support slot on the New Pornographers North American tour, and Bejar was persuaded to perform a few songs live with the Pornographers for the first time in years.
This Night, Destroyer album number five and Bejar’s debut on Merge Records, was released in the fall of 2002 and continued to raise the bar, confounding perceptions of what exactly Destroyer was, or could be.

  Destroyer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Modern destroyers are equivalent in tonnage and drastically superior in firepower to cruisers of the World War II era, capable of carrying nuclear missiles able to destroy cities in a very small volley.
Destroyers (with a DD hull classification symbol) primarily perform anti-submarine warfare duty while guided missile destroyers (DDGs) are multi-mission (anti-submarine, anti-aircraft, and anti-surface warfare) surface combatants.
The destroyers (as well as frigates) are, as always, the workhorses of the fleet, the former optimised for air defence and the latter for surface and subsurface warfare.

 destroyer. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
The destroyer, originally called the torpedo-boat destroyer, was introduced in 1892 as an answer to the torpedo boat, but it rapidly replaced that type by taking over its functions.
Later, its role as a torpedo launcher declined, and today destroyers have a mainly defensive role; they are used for convoying merchant ships and as escort vessels in a battle fleet.
Destroyers were of great importance in World War II; equipped with new electronic devices, they proved highly effective as antisubmarine weapons and, hence, as escorts for convoys.

 Star Wars: Databank | Imperial Star Destroyer
While vessels of the Jedi order were met with feelings of pride and relief as they came soaring to solve galactic strife, the Imperial Star Destroyer's gargantuan size cleary inspires both awe and terror.
The Star Destroyer is recognized as the signature vessel of the Imperial fleet.
Though, as is typical of the Empire, not even the Star Destroyer was enough to sate the Imperial hunger for displays of power.

 Talitres records - Destroyer
Your Blues is Destroyer's vainglorious retreat from the American rock'n roll tradition, in the wake of their bloated and oft-maligned (and oft-praised) magnum opus, This Night, which quietly assaulted the bankrupt college rock arena of 2002.
In 1998 Destroyer added a rhythm section to the mix and went into a real studio to record "City Of Daughters", a sparsely produced but engagingly catchy batch of pop songs in which Bejar's inventive lyrics began to evolve into an obtuse and poetically original voice.
Destroyer has not been the only vehicle for Bejar's distinct songwriting; he is also a main contributor on the much acclaimed New Pornographer's Mass Romantic (Mint).

Destroyers played a critical role in the convoy system in World War II.
Originally termed ‘torpedo-boat destroyers’, they were designed by Britain to counter the large flotillas built by the French and Russian navies in the late 19th century.
They proved so effective that torpedo-boats were more or less abandoned in the early 1900s, but the rise of the submarine found a new task for the ‘destroyer’.

 Destroyer: Destroyer's Rubies (2006): Reviews
This is the defining Destroyer work because of its size and scope, because of its melodicism ("Painter in Your Pocket" the hottest pop song Bejar's authored yet), because of the caliber of its musical chops, and because of the shots Bejar continues to fire.
Destroyer’s Rubies is one of those rare albums whose literary value is so compelling as to make any imperfections simply blend in as an essential part of the storyline.
Destroyer's Rubies is an inadvertent Guide To Destroyer - every defining quirk, every 70's pop nod and ill-advised but forgivable falsetto is condensed and framed, only without becoming something fans of Bejar will have all heard before.

 Destroyer: Your Blues - PopMatters Music Review
For those that are new to Destroyer, there is nothing on Your Blues that will snare you like his contributions "Testament to Youth in Verse" or "Ballad of a Comeback Kid" did on Electric Version, but Your Blues captivates nonetheless by exuded other strengths.
Where the last Destroyer album This Night found Bejar sounding like a burnt-out Billy Corgan on lithium, this album strips away the rock trappings of the electric guitar/bass/vocals arrangements in favor of keyboards and acoustic guitars.
The one constant that remains in place is the willfully obtuse lyrics that have become a signature of a Destroyer album.

Destroying the command tower will instantly kill the command crew and deprive the ship of all forms of long range communications, radar and targeting.
Destroying the main sensory array on top of the command tower will have the same effect, but the command staff will not be killed instantly.
These sensors can essentially instantly detect mass readings and movement of objects up to 1 AU (93 million miles) distant from the ship, and the readings are used both for early warning and for navigation when traveling at sublight speeds.

They would be smaller than a Destroyer and not have the firepower, but they could accomplish many of the same task that the Destroyer was designed to do for half the cost.
Of the 563 Destroyer Escorts built during and shortly after WW 2, 78 were for England, 6 for France, and 8 for Brazil.
The first Destroyer Escort that was commissioned was the USS Brennan DE 13 on Jan 20, 1943, at Mare Island, Vallejo, Calif. the DEs would supply the United States Navy with the economical destroyer type ship which could be mass produced using less expensive material.

The Bowie comparisons have continued to dog him and not undeservedly, but Destroyer continues to blend a plethora of influences into their own musical mélange; one that comes out sounding distinct and visionary.

 Amazon.com: Destroyer: Music: Kiss   (Site not responding. Last check: )
With their 1976 album Destroyer, the band's fifth release in two years, Kiss began to expand their fan base by shedding a bit of their edge, taking on a more melodic sound and a less menacing image.
In addition to releasing Destroyer, the band pumped out the equally touted album Rock and Roll Over, which included the pounding "Take Me" and the groovin' "Calling Dr. Love." The only finer year was 1978, when the band starred in the classic B-grade flick Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park.
Destroyer, if not their best album, at least features classic songs that support it to the hilt.

Destroyer Command is the spiritual heir to all those Great Naval Battle games SSI used to publish.
But whereas the Great Naval Battles series put you on the bridges of the century's grandest battleships, Destroyer Command relegates you to their little cousins, the destroyer escorts in World War II who kept enemy subs at bay.
In a way, Destroyer Command plays like a wargame, and the scenarios are like set-piece battles in which you have to figure out the best tactics.

 Kiss : Destroyer - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Destroyer is one of Kiss' most experimental studio albums, but also one of their strongest and most interesting.
But it was the aforementioned Peter Criss ballad, "Beth," that made Destroyer such a success; the song was a surprise Top Ten hit (it was originally released as a B-side to "Detroit Rock City").
Also included is a song that Nirvana would later cover ("Do You Love Me?"), as well as an ode to the pleasures of S&M, "Sweet Pain." Destroyer also marked the first time that a comic-book illustration of the band appeared on the cover, confirming that the band was transforming from hard rockers to superheroes.

The speed and firepower of the destroyer lend themselves to a wide variety of roles -- from ground support, escort, interception and patrol.
