DESTRUCTION Reveal Details About NEW Album!
Iconic German Thrash Metal trio, DESTRUCTION, are currently locked up at Gernhart Studios in Troisdorf, Germany working on their 30th anniversary album entitled 'Spiritual Genocide'. The band is working with engineer Martin Buchwalter and are shooting for a November release via Nuclear Blast Records. The record will be mixed by Andy Classen, feature guest appearances by Thomas "Angelripper" Such (SODOM), Andreas "Gerre" Geremia (TANKARD) and Ol Drake (EVILE). In addition, the 'Mad Butcher'/'Release From Agony' lineup of DESTRUCTION — featuring guitarist Harry Wilkens and drummer Oliver Kaiser — will reunite for one song.
Commented DESTRUCTION vocalist/bassist Marcel "Schmier" Schirmer: "For this anniversary album we did a really great job. Our new drummer, Vaaver [real name: Wawrzyniec Dramowicz; INDUKTI, ex-UNSUN], opens up new possibilities of course.
"On this album there are no limits.
"So fast, brutal and yet groovy we haven't ever sounded, probably!
"Also the guest musicians are very special this time: with Gerre and Tom Angelripper, our old friends and companions, are with us, the original 'Mad Butcher'/'Release From Agony' lineup is doing one song and with Ol Drake, we got the hottest young thrash guitarist for a few solos on the album!
"Germany's best extreme metal producer Andy Classen will take care for the brutal and raw production!
"The album will destroy even more than [2011's] 'Day Of Reckoning': fast riffs, double bass attacks and brutal groovy songs, I think this time we found the 100% right mix!
"Also the 'Mad Butcher' returns to the cover.
"Cool artworks are very important for us. For the new thrash thunderstorm, our artist Gyula created a real hammer again! The artwork makes clear immediately where to go — FULL THROTTLE — as it has to be."
DESTRUCTION's 11th studio release 'Day Of Reckoning' (Nuclear Blast) - the first album to feature NEW drummer, Vaaver (Indukti, ex-Unsun) – debuted at #54 on the Hard Music Albums chart, #58 on the New Artist/Heatseekers Album chart, and #143 on the Independent Current Albums chart the week following its release in March 2011. The album entered Germany’s Media Control chart at #95.
