German thrash metal icons DESTRUCTION celebrate their 40th anniversary with their hard-hitting new full-length, Diabolical, out April 8, 2022 via Napalm Records! Today, the relentless legends reveal their new single, “No Faith In Humanity,” raging uncompromisingly with non-stop headbanging action! As one of the most legendary existing German thrash metal bands, DESTRUCTION grace the wall of fame with greats like KREATOR, SODOM and TANKARD — still going strong after four decades of Thrash Metal! Prepare for neck breaking energy!
On their 15th studio record, DESTRUCTION brings out heavy artillery full of honest and uncompromising thrash metal, catapulting you straight into the seventh heaven of metallic bliss and causing a massacre of razor-sharp sound no fan of the genre should miss! The title track “Diabolical” shows no mercy, showing us a glimpse of what DESTRUCTION have in store for their upcoming album Diabolical!
After the charging start of opener “Under The Spell,” DESTRUCTION shows no mercy on title track “Diabolical,” with raging drums, bloodthirsty riffs and hellish vocals that sink deep down into your bones. “No Faith In Humanity” relentlessly rages on with non-stop headbanging action, while DESTRUCTION continues to smash eardrums on “Hope Dies Last” — providing unbeatable brutality with unstoppable speed, destructive verses and screeching voices. “Tormented Soul,” on the other hand, is loaded with proper heavy metal and explosive drums. The grand finale of the 47-minute parade of devastation is provided by cover track “City Baby Attacked By Rats,” originally by GBH, guaranteeing whiplash by combining rough hardcore punk with brute thrash metal.
DESTRUCTION riffkiller 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 to the point. It’s a pure and devastating DESTRUCTION album with no gimmicks, full of power and adrenaline. I’m excited for what the future is bringing and can’t wait to play the new songs live!”
