Destruction announces title & release date for new album

Posted by AP on 15/01/16

Teutonic thrash veterans Destruction have begun recording their next album, which has been christened "Under Attack". The effort is set to be released through Nuclear Blast Records on May 13th - just in time for the European festival season.

Vocalist/bassist Marcel 'Schmier' Schirmer had the following to say about the record and its creation:

We really took our time for this album. After the summer festivals we went into the studio every couple of weeks to record brand new songs and ideas in between all the touring activities. We took several studio sessions instead of one long one, to keep the ideas fresh and have time later before the mix to change bits and pieces that we did not like! 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. From my point of view you can definitely hear the crispiness in the songwriting and 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!

How does the new record sound? For sure not like a band that is in its 33 years of existence: Efficient aggression: FAST - CATCHY - ORIGINAL!

Whilst you look forward to this one, why not read our review of the band's 2011 "Day of Reckoning" (our most recent article to feature them)?
