Founded in 1982 by Schmier, Mike and Tommy, whose drumming duties have been taken over by Vaaver, Destruction have risen to the position of one the figureheads of German thrash.When Kerrang! called their 2012 anniversary album "Spiritual Genocide", "a devastating thrash attack" they were only echoing the thoughts of the band‘s hardcore fans around the world.In the Eighties, Destruction already had an exceptional status. The razor sharp riffing of guitarist Mike and Schmiers’ unmistakable vocals left the competition way behind them during the first wave of Thrash Metal. Songs like "Mad Butcher", "Death Trap", "Tormentor" and "Curse The Gods" are a part of Metal History, timeless neckbreakers and a ton-heavy legacy.

Although the band parted ways in the nineties,their reunion was THE sensation of summer 1999. Destruction warmed up by playing diverse gigs (including. Wacken and Bang Your Head Festivals) where not only old and new fans but also musicians by the dozen fell to their knees in awe. Colleagues from bands like Immortal and Testament could hardly believe that their old heroes were back together and kickin’ ass just like in the old days. Among their worshippers in Wacken was producer Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, Sabaton) who has been a die-hard Destruction fan for years and went on to record the “All Hell Breaks Loose”. album.

Fast forward to 2016 and the latest album ‘Under Attack’. Recording sessions took place after the summer festivals last year and the band have been recording segments in various studios between September 2015 and January 2016. The result is another collection of razor-sharp riffs, rasping vocals and relentless rhythms evidenced by the title track and the likes of ‘Dethroned’. This stunning cover artwork was created by acclaimed artist Gyula from Hungary, who has also created artwork for ANNIHLATOR, GRAVE DIGGER, STRATOVARIUS, TANKARD and many more.
