DESTRUCTION ANNOUNCE 30th ANNIVERSARY TOUR DATES

February 23rd, 2012

Iconic German thrash trio DESTRUCTION will embark on a North American 30th Year Anniversary Tour this May with shared direct support from Vital Remains and Warbringer (who will be alternating each night) plus Pathology.

 

States DESTRUCTION frontman & bassist Schmier:

 

“A killer package for old-school thrash & death metal freaks!  This may be the best set list we’ve ever had – the essence of thrash metal history united with our new anthems.  We’ll have more classics than ever in the set, more from the first records for sure.  Can’t wait to hit the road again!!!  Some North American cities have a great audience for this old school sound again, and it wasn’t always like that.  The main intention for this second North American tour within a year is that we could not play all markets that we wanted to book last time.  Now, we’ll play some new places and return to those cities that gave us a great welcome last year like New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Montreal.  Warbringer are a perfect match to a DESTRUCTION bill.  They are one of the best new thrash bands and keep our ‘80s spirit alive.  It will be great to have them with us!  We’ve played with Vital Remains before; awesome guys and a brutal band.  They bring a good variety into the billing.  Thrash/death metal is always the best mix, that’s why Pathology complete the show!”

 

Confirmed dates & cities thus far for DESTRUCTION’s 30th Year Anniversary Tour are:

 

05-04-12  Brick By Brick – San Diego, CA

05-08-12  Casselman’s – Denver, CO

Hellfest – Clisson France

October 1st, 2011

Hellfest – Clisson France

17-18-19 June 2011

Hellfest arrives for its 5th edition. The French festival has been growing incredibly huge and very fast. This year it traditional location in the sport facilities of Clisson couldn’t take anymore of the mass of metalheads coming to this small part of France from all over the world.

This year’s crowd-moving, main acts where none less than Rob Zombie, Scorpions, Ozzy, and Judas Priest, with tons of other goodies in between. An excellent line-up as usual, as it’s part of the winning formula that gave success to the organizers of this event, nowadays already one of the biggest metal fests in the European summer.

The weather won’t be the most pleasant ever, but on the other hand it could have been way worse than just some strong wind and rain here and there, and the sun has been lighting the fields from time to time, still giving the impression to be in summer, after all. But as this festival is amazingly fun if you are among the beer-drinking hellraisers in the audience, you can somehow understand the “hell” part when you have to keep up with the insanely long queues to get into the photo pit, along with running all over the festival area from stage to stage, trying not to fall over some boozer laying on the ground. Oh well… running is good for your health!

4ARM TOUR AUSTRALIA WITH DESTRUCTION AND MORTAL SIN

September 15th, 2011

Destruction are legendary in thrash circles, and the best news of all is that they are back. Not only with a new album, but thrash fans all over the country will be warming up their necks for some serious head-banging at the news that Destruction will be touring Australia this November. Joining them for the ride will be Australian thrash pioneers, Mortal Sin, and established Melbourne act, 4ARM.

For almost 30 years, the name Destruction has been almost synonymous with high energy thrash. The south German act has never veered from their ethos of never backing down from creating pure thrash. Now, the three-piece are back with another thrash metal gem, Day Of Reckoning, and will be unleashing it upon Australian audiences.. Released earlier this year, the album shows the band at its most fierce, brutal and thrashy. Here Destruction pay tribute to their roots and easily revive that old school speedy feeling.

Says vocalist Schmier of the album, “If you think Destruction is an old band, this album will prove you wrong! The speed and energy combined with a basic, fresh and aggressive production will make this record an outstanding classic of our long discography.”

Beginning way back in 1985, Mortal Sin, could probably be considered Australia’s first thrash metal band. Their first album, Mayhemic Destruction, saw them gain much attention at home and abroad, while a quiet period during the 1990’s saw them emerge again in 2004 for a tour with Anthrax and a European tour. Now in 2011, the band are set to release their newest epic, Psychology Of Death, on September 23.

Having just completed their third album, Submission For Liberty, 4ARM are chomping at the bit for its release. By joining this tour, fans are given the opportunity to experience some of the album’s ferocity and supercharged riffage in a live setting, before it’s 2012 release.

This triple header of thrash will be devastating metal fans around the country. So get on board and do not miss Destruction causing devastation and ruin in a town near you.

Tour dates as follows…

 

11/03/11 ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA, FOWLERS LIVE

 

11/04/11 MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA, PRINCE OF WALES

 

11/05/11 SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, THE GAELIC CLUB

 

11/06/11 BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA, THE HI-FI

 

Tickets for the upcoming tour will be released momentarily through respected ticketing outlets and venues.

SWEDENROCK 2011

August 1st, 2011

swedenrock2011.jpg

 

Let Me Hear You Scream Sweden Rockkkk.Well the annual roadtrip to Swedenrock by the Finnish Metal Rules.com team is already into it’s 11th year!  The  2011 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock in the line-up. Over 70 metal and rock bands offered one hell of an experience for the attendees. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years as the festival has always been sold out. This year wasn’t any exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economic situation worldwide and the ticket price had risen a little bit. ver these 11 years of coverage, it has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article of several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The  weather once again showed positive and negative aspects like in 2010. It either rained or was windy with a little sunshine. But we were there for bands, not for having some beach party crap. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Enjoy or die!!!

METAL JOURNALIST CELEBRATES 25th ANNIVERSARY OF DESTRUCTION’S ETERNAL DEVASTATION

July 2nd, 2011

According to metal journalist Mike R. Meyer, “1986 was the best year in the history of thrash — and probably the metal genre as a whole — giving us seminal releases by many of thrash metal’s best acts.”

For his second installment in his on-going “Top 10 Thrash Albums of 1986” series coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the album’s actual North American release date, Meyer has featured DESTRUCTION’s Eternal Devastation.  “Along with Kreator and Sodom,” he writes, “DESTRUCTION would eventually come to be known as one of the ‘Three Kings’ of Teutonic thrash metal, mirroring the rise of the ‘Big Four’ American thrash bands.  From the ominous intro to ‘Curse the Gods’ through the closing track, ‘Confused Mind,’ Eternal Devastation not only raised the bar for German thrash metal, but for the genre worldwide.”

Read the entire write-up and his interview with the band’s iconic bassist/vocalist Schmier here.

DESTRUCTION’s latest album, Day Of Reckoning, debuted at #54 on the Billboard Current Hard Music Albums chart, #58 on the New Artist/Heatseekers Album chart, and #143 on the Independent Current Albums chart this past March.

View the video for “Hate Is My Fuel”on YouTube.

DESTRUCTION have upcoming summer festival performances in Colombia, Italy, Solvenia, and Germany.  Eight shows in South America will follow in August, then three September dates in Russia.

EVILE GUITARIST FEATURED ON NEW DESTRUCTION ALBUM

February 24th, 2011
Destruction - Day Of Reckoning

Destruction - Day Of Reckoning

OL DRAKE, lead guitarist for British thrashers EVILE, is featured as a guest musician on the new album from German thrash legends DESTRUCTION.

OL DRAKE had previously filled in for DESTRUCTION guitarist MIKE SIFRINGER in 2009 at Portugal’s Caos Emergente festival, after SIFRINGER broke a finger on his left hand.  DRAKE was asked to join the German thrashers in the studio to play some solos and harmonies on the new DESTRUCTION release, titled DAY OF RECKONING.

OL DRAKE comments:

“Just got a package through the mail from sir Schmier, which contained the newest Destruction album, “Day of Reckoning”.  I had the huge honour of doing a few guest solos and harmonies on the album, as well as on their awesome cover of Dio’s “Stand Up and Shout” (which is one of my favourite Dio tracks!).  To fly over there, do some recording, backing vocals and hang out with Mike and Schmier again was an experience I’ll never forget.

“Being a big Destruction fan, I can’t put into words how unbelievable it is, and was, to be a part of the album.  Also, with being a Destruction fan, I can safely say this is one of the best albums they’ve done in a long time (no, not because I’m on it… Well, a little haha).  Our old bassist, Mike, was a huge Destruction fan, so I really hope he’d be proud.  I remember when I told him I’d be standing in on guitar for Destruction’s Mike at a show in Portugal; he simply called me a “bastard”.  I think he was more excited than I was haha.  Long live Destruction!”

View a photo of OL DRAKE with the new DESTRUCTION CD: http://earacherecords.com/myspace/evile_ol_destructioncd.jpg

EVILE’s thrash metal anthem, “Thrasher”, is available now on the Rock Band Network, along with every song from the band’s latest album, INFECTED NATIONS.  Get the tracks now by heading to EVILE’s official Rock Band Network page at http://www.rockband.com/songs/artists/Evile
