The Great Destroyer is a 2005 album by the slowcore band Low. It was their first recording on Sub Pop Records. "California", a song about Sparhawk's mother, was the first single, backed with a demo of "Cue the Strings". A remix EP of "Monkey", entitled "Tonight the Monkeys Die", soon followed. Music videos were created for both.
The title of the album (as well as the song "Silver Rider") is taken from the story within the album art.
In March 2009, the album had scored an 82 out of 100 (or "universal acclaim") on Metacritic.
