It has been four years since the legendary Destruction released their last album 'Spiritual Genocide' and 2016 sees Schmier, Mike and Vaaver returning to the scene with a bang! 'Under Attack' will be released 34 years after establishing the band. Don't be fooled by their longevity though as the songwriting is light-years away from the eighties and is much more mature and focussed.
Founded in 1982 the trio reached the top of the national thrash metal movement, with albums such as 'Infernal Overkill' and 'Eternal Devastation' nestling in their impressive heavy metal canon. Even later works like 'All Hell Breaks Loose' or 'The Antichrist' are glorious moments in thrash, highlighting why Destruction are part of the "Big Teutonic 4"... and still touring the world with great success.
If you listen to songs like the anthemic title track, the fast and catchy "Generation Nevermore," the wrecking ball "Pathogenic" or the complex "Conductor Of The Void" you will agree for sure. Schmier's voice cuts through glass, Mike plays some of his best riffs and licks ever and Vaaver batters everything down. The impressing cover artwork was once again created by the Hungarian artist Gyula and perfectly illustrates the themes of 'Under Attack.'
In the words of frontman Schmier: "It's fast, it's catchy and it's original."
