DESTRUCTION Frontman Interviewed In Peru (Video)
- Jan. 25, 2013
Lima, Peru's ElCuartelDelMetal.net conducted an interview with vocalist/bassist Marcel "Schmier" Schirmer of veteran German thrashers DESTRUCTION before the band's January 22 concert in Lima. You can now watch the chat below.
DESTRUCTION's 30th-anniversary album, "Spiritual Genocide", was released on November 23, 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2011's "Day Of Reckoning" was recorded at Gernhart Studios in Troisdorf, Germany with engineer Martin Buchwalter and was mixed by Andy Classen. The album features guest appearances by Thomas "Angelripper" Such (SODOM), Andreas "Gerre" Geremia (TANKARD) and Ol Drake (EVILE). In addition, the "Mad Butcher"/"Release From Agony" lineup of DESTRUCTION — featuring guitarist Harry Wilkens and drummer Oliver Kaiser — reunited for one song.
"Spiritual Genocide" track listing:
01. Exordium 02. Cyanide 03. Spiritual Genocide 04. Renegades 05. City Of Doom 06. No Signs Of Repentance 07. To Dust You Will Decay 08. Legacy Of The Past (feat. Andreas "Gerre" Geremia, Thomas "Angelripper" Such) 09. Carnivore 10. Riot Squad 11. Under Violent Sledge
Limited-edition digipack bonus tracks:
12. Princess Of The Night 13. Carnivore (feat. Harry Wilkens, Oliver Kaiser)
Asked how DESTRUCTION's sound has evolved over the years, Schmier told Metal Assault, "We were 17-18 years old when we started, and we were young and wild. We didn't play that well at the time. Of course now, we have the experience of 30 years and our playing skills are totally different, so we cannot really compare, but I still compare the style of music and it's still thrash metal. We still do it with a lot of emotion and a lot of aggression, and those things will never change. I think we even came more brutal and more aggressive with this new album as compared to the old ones, actually. DESTRUCTION 2012 doesn't sound like an old band."
