‘D.e.v.o.l.u.t.i.o.n.' shows a band that's still worth listening to.

It’s been 25 years since Destruction was formed in Lorrach in Germany. Alongside Kreator and Sodom, Destruction are titans of the German thrash metal circuit. After years spent in the wilderness during the nineties, founding bassist/singer Marcel Schirmer returned to the band in 1999 and since then things have been on the up for Destruction: they signed to Nuclear Blast in 2000 before moving on to AFM in 2005 for the ‘Inventor Of Evil’ album. The remarkable discipline and persistence of founding guitarist Mike Sifringer kept the band going through those rough years when most bands probably would have given up.

They lost their record deal during the grunge period and had to self-release and promote their own albums during most of the nineties. But that’s all in the past now and their latest album shows a band looking ahead to the future. It’s a technically excellent album with lots of frenetic guitars and pounding drums. Interestingly, the first letter of each song spells the album’s title ‘D.e.v.o.l.u.t.i.o.n.’ There’s even some special contributions from Annihilator main man Jeff Waters, Gary Holt of Exodus and guitarist Vinnie Moore. Standout tracks include the impulsive ‘Offenders Of The Throne’ and the terrific ‘Odyssey Of Frustration’ which recalls their best earlier work. ‘Last Desperate Scream’ is one of the albums more melodic tracks. 

‘D.e.v.o.l.u.t.i.o.n.’ shows a band that’s still worth listening to and are more than capable of producing top quality work that suits a modern metal audience whilst pleasing fans of classic eighties thrash.
