Four years after legendary Destruction exclaimed the »Spiritual Genocide« Schmier, Mike and Vaaver return with a bang! »Under Attack« is as nasty as possible and as catchy as necessary and will be released on May 13 2016. 33 years after establishing Destruction sound as angry as in the beginning. Just the songwriting is light-years away from the eighties; it’s much more mature and mellow. Convince yourself and bang your head to »Under Attack«.

Founded in 1982 the trio got to the top of the national thrash metal movement. Albums like »Infernal Overkill« or »Eternal Devastation« are part of the heavy metal canon, but even later works like »All Hell Breaks Loose« or »The Antichrist« are glorious moments in thrash. Destruction are part of the “Big Teutonic 4” for a good reason. And they are still touring the world with great success.

For »Under Attack« the band changed their proven mode of operation. Instead of booking a studio for a couple of weeks Schmier and his mates decided to enter different places (Gernhart Studios in Germany, VO Pulver’s Little Creek Studios in Switzerland among others) between September 2015 and January 2016 whenever possible. “We really took our time for this album”, Schmier stated. “Maybe this was the most effective writing we did in the last years! Due the fact we had more time in between the albums, there was a lot of musical output and creativity, but also less pressure. You can definitely hear the kick-ass attitude we brought from the shows into the studio. The 'on tour into the studio on tour mode' was so effective that I wanna keep this method for the future.” Schmier added: “How does the new record sound? For sure not like a band that is in its 33 years of existence.”

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. Schmiers voice cuts glass, Mike plays some of his best riffs and licks ever and Vaaver batters everything down. The impressing cover artwork, once again done by the Hungarian artist Gyula, completes »Under Attack«. Or to use the words of Schmier: “It’s fast, it’s catchy and it’s original.”
