"Live attack" - The new work of one of Trash Metal's Icons bands, DESTRUCTION, is back and promises to break the necks of many Metalheads, who won't get tired of headbanging to every song. With the New live work on BluRay/CD, it includes two content as bonuses, before and after the concert. "Live Attack" will be released on August 13, 2021.


The energetic explosion evoked the Single and the live video for the theme "Reject Emotions". The song was chosen for the set list after they had stopped playing for a long time and is now "demanded" by the band's many followers. Destruction with their streaming event, "Live Attack", brought back the theme "Reject Emotions" in collaboration with legendary founding members such as Schimier on vocals and bass and Mike on guitar. The Anthem is back again.


SCHMIER states:

The die-hards voted for ‘Reject Emotions’ to be on the setlist at this special show on our social media pages. We did not perform this fan favourite in its full length since the 80s, cause it was written for two guitars. Most fans know, it is actually the first song we ever wrote as a four-piece.

This is why we chose this as a single now for our BluRay release. It is a very rare live track, finally played again with the power of two axes, the way it was meant to be! A cult song that always had a special place in our metal-hearts! The flashback shots from the 80s in honour of the old line up build a bridge to our history and will hopefully bring back some joy and good memories for many supporters!”


Founded in 1982 and since their first demo, followed by their debut EP "Sentence Of Death" in 1984 and their first full-length "Infernal Overkill" in 1985, the German quartet DESTRUCTION turned heads and broke necks with their incredibly honest and uncompromising Thrash Metal power, Speed Metal in 80's. Now 39 years into his frantic, unstoppable career, DESTRUCTION brings the power of strong drums, fast riffs and violent vocals to the comfort of your own home on the new BluRay and 2 audio CD, Live Attack! It follows their latest record, Born To Perish (#26 on the GER album charts), recalling a nearly two-hour live bout that the heavy juggernaut unleashed in January of this year.

DESTRUCTION on their first release with Napalm Records:

This show at our fave club, the Z7 in Switzerland, was a really special one in the middle of this dreadful pandemic! When we recorded it as a live stream on the 1st of January, it gave us hope back and connected us with the fans worldwide! Many supporters demanded to release it in physical form, so we had to make it happen. The setlist reflects four decades of DESTRUCTION with an almost two hour best-of setlist, which includes some really rare live tracks! It was for sure a night to remember… we hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!"
