Review: Destruction – D.E.V.O.L.U.T.I.O.N. [2008]

amazon-destructioGerman thrash titans Destruction unquestionably are one of the premiere thrash bands of all time and this Teutonic troupe shows no sign of letting up based on their latest disc D.E.V.O.L.U.T.I.O.N. This 10-track affair by these seasoned metal warriors contains all of the explosiveness this band has to offer, garnished with vocalist Schmeir’s trademark sneer and the unit’s blistering instrumental flurries fully intact on cuts like “Last Desperate Scream” and “Elevator to Hell.” Fortified by a crushing abundance of wailing guitar solos and riffs that nimbly juxtapose technicality and savagery (“No One Shall Survive”), Destruction proudly kick down the doors with a barrage of their formulaic yet effective thrash metal attack that surprises at times but remains true to the act’s vision 25 years since their inception. www.candlelightrecordsusa.com -Mike SOS
