Born to perish? This does not apply to the Thrash Metal legend DESTRUCTION even though their new album »Born To Perish« will create a furor on August 9th. The brandnew line-up featuring the Canadian drum animal Randy Black and Swiss shred-master Damir Eskic, together with veterans Schmier and Mike, is here to bring you musical destruction. This is a new chapter in the long history of the band. Within a few seconds, »Born To Perish« is identified as a DESTRUCTION album, but there are also a couple of experiments thinking out of the box. Especially the guitar work has developed. »Born To Perish« starts straight in your face with the title song – without an intro orany frippery. This is classical Thrash Metal like the following bone breaking ‘Inspired By Death’, the heavy but catchy tune ‘Betrayal’ or the raised middle finger ‘Rotten’. Since DESTRUCTION was founded in 1982, they never lost their aggressiveness. On the second part of the album there are some surprises like ‘Butchered For Life’ starting like a rock ballade and ending up as a real Thrash Metal monster. In ‘Fatal Flight 17’, outstanding with its exceptional riffing, Likewise, DESTRUTCTION seem to accelerate endlessly – in 2019 more than ever.
