DESTRUCTION Frontman Schmier Discusses ‘Under Attack’ Album In Video Interview
June 4th, 2016

German thrash metal group Destruction issued 14th full-length studio album Under Attack on May 13th, 2016 through Nuclear Blast Records.

The first and second videos of a series of trailers to promote the outing, in which Destruction frontman Schmier discusses the recording process and lyrics for Under Attack as well as other topics, which can also be viewed below.

Cover artwork duties fell to Gyula Havancsák.

Destruction vocalist / bassist Schmier commented: “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!”

The track listing is as follows;

01. ‘Under Attack’
02. ‘Generation Nevermore’
03. ‘Dethroned’
04. ‘Getting Used To The Evil’
05. ‘Pathogenic’
06. ‘Elegant Pigs’
07. ‘Second To None’
08. ‘Stand Up For What You Deliver’
09. ‘Conductor Of The Void’
10. ‘Stigmatized’
11. ‘Black Metal’ (bonus track feat. Alex Camargo of Krisiun)
12. ‘Thrash Attack’ (bonus track)

Destruction’s line-up is as follows;

Schmier (vocals and bass)
Mike (guitar)
Vaaver (drums)

A music video was filmed for the title track. In addition, an official lyric video was created for the song ‘Second To None’. ‘Second To None’ was made available as a digital single on April 1st, 2016. In addition, the track was released on a split 7-inch coloured vinyl EP with fellow German metallers Rage on April 22nd. The EP was made available in both red and green vinyl.

Thirteenth studio record Spiritual Genocide was released in November 2012.
