SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.

- Two-channel SACD layer only, to secure enough reflectance and not to compress DSD file.
- Label of the disc is printed with a special green ink called 'Onsho Shiyou,' which minimizes diffuse reflection.
- Carefully selected master audio is used, from existing DSD files to newly converted from analog tapes.

"Paired for the first time with a forceful producer in Bob Ezrin - who is both a master of studio technology and a classically trained musician - Kiss has come forth with a concept album that explores the psychological ramifications of the members' stage personas via music that is by turns driving and dynamic, chilling and introspective. Moreover, Destroyer is sophisticated in a manner from standard heavy-metal fare: the intricate time signatures of 'Detroit Rock City,' for example, present a challenge to any rock musician. There is no doubt that Destroyer is Kiss's best album yet or that Ezrin has made the difference." - The Rolling Stone Record Guide
