DESTRUCTION Releases Video Of Diabolical Studio Sessions

German thrash metal veterans Destruction are celebrating their 40th anniversary by setting the world ablaze with a new hard-hitting grenade in the form of their new album, Diabolical, out April 8 via Napalm Records.

Destruction posted the new video below, saying, “We made a little clip with some impressions from the recording session for the new album at Little Creek Studio in Switzerland for you guys!”

Singer/bassist Schmier on the recording of Diabolical: “It was the most fun we’ve had working on a record in a very long time and it shows. Yeah. It was theoretically a difficult album but we didn’t think not that way while we recorded. We just followed our emotions, stuck and shook with strong intuition! This recording was like therapy for me, we all know how hard times are right now. I’m so super happy with how it all turned out!”

Guitar shredder Damir adds: “It was a real honor for me to record this album. The studio work for Diabolical was very spontaneous and we had a lot of fun creating these dynamic, multifaceted and brutal yet diverse songs. J loved every second of working on this record!“

The new single and video, “No Faith in Humanity”, will be released at the end of February.

As one of the most legendary German thrash metal bands in existence, Destruction graces the wall of fame alongside giants like Kreator, Sodom and Tankard. On their 15th studio album, Destruction bring out heavy artillery full of honest, uncompromising thrash metal, catapulting you straight into seventh heaven of metallic bliss and unleashing a razor-sharp slaughter of sound no fan of the genre should. to lack.

After the busy start to opener “Under The Spell,” Destruction shows no mercy on title track “Diabolical,” with raging drums, bloodthirsty riffs, and hellish vocals that sink deep into your bones. “No Faith In Humanity” rages relentlessly with non-stop headbanging action, while Destruction continues to shatter eardrums on “Hope Dies Last” – delivering unbeatable brutality with unstoppable speed, destructive verses and shrill vocals. “Tormented Soul,” meanwhile, is loaded with heavy metal and explosive drums. The grand finale of the 47-minute parade of devastation is provided by the cover version “City Baby Attacked By Rats”, originally by GBH, guaranteeing a boost by combining raw hardcore punk with raw thrash metal.

Destruction riff killer Furia about the new record: “Diabolical is an album of extremes, everything is more brutal and more technical but at the same time more melodic and relevant. It’s a pure and devastating Destruction album without gimmicks, full of power and adrenaline. I’m excited for what the future holds and can’t wait to play the new songs live!

Diabolical will be available in different formats in different territories, including digital album and CD (comes with exclusive “Mad Butcher” t-shirt + bust), 1LP gatefold editions in black, crystal and marbled yellow/red. Pre-order here.
