"DESTRUCTION once more proof their status as an exceptional band and throw out their best album since their reunion. Riffs, grooves and screaming par excellence!"
METAL HAMMER (D), Tom Küppers
Iconic thrash metal band DESTRUCTION released their new masterpiece "Under Attack” on May 13th via Nuclear Blast Records.
Today, the band has uploaded the lyric video for the track "Generation Nevermore" on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel!
Frontman Schmier states:
"Did you ever ask yourself how is it possible that the global population just loves to make cash with killing our planet and our fellowmen and doesn`t give a fuck? Where is the wake up call of our political leaders in charge? Mankind does not really wanna have a look in the mirror till it's too late ... and this is an angry Thrash song about that sad fact!"
"Under Attack" has entered the charts worldwide at the following positions:
USA Heatseekers #17
USA Hard Music #27
CANADA Hard Music #96
UK Rock Top40 #39
BELGIUM Wallonie #85
BELGIUM Vlaanderen #145
Frontman Schmier states:
"I think this is the BEST reactions we ever had for a new album since INFERNAL OVERKILL, not even our best selling album THE ANTICHRIST had such an impact on the billboards of the world! We are talking underground music here, so it`s an amazing statement for THRASH & the fans! A big CHEERS to all those rebels who don t accept the norm and support the sound of the pit!"
