Olof Mörck, the guitarist of AMARANTHE, DRAGONLAND and NIGHTRAGE, has recorded a guest solo for the new DESTRUCTION album, "Day Of Reckoning" , tentatively due early next year via Nuclear Blast Records.

Commented Olof: "It is a honor to announce my participation on the latest CD of one of the first bands I started to listen to — DESTRUCTION, and it was a lot of fun to record a solo in a old-school thrash style!

"Thanks to Schmier and the rest of the DESTRUCTION guys for letting me be a part of their new album, and I wish them the best of luck with it!"

According to a posting on DESTRUCTION's official web site, the follow-up to 2008's "D.E.V.O.L.U.T.I.O.N." will be faster and "more turbulent" than its predecessor.

Drummer Marc Reign earlier in the year left DESTRUCTION due to "personal and musical differences" caused by "tour stress," according to a statement released by the band. The group added, "Marc will concentrate on his rock project VOLCANO and wants to keep himself open for other musical styles. He wants to thank all the DESTRUCTION maniacs worldwide and the band for all the great fun and support over all those years!"

A replacement drummer has yet to be announced.

"A Savage Symphony - The History Of Annihilation", the new DVD from DESTRUCTION, was released in North America on April 13. The disc was produced by Berlin, Germany's Roax Films and includes footage of the group 25th-anniversary concert at the 2007 edition of the Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany (featuring many special guests, including former bandmembers),a band documentary and tons of bonus live material.

"The Curse Of The Antichrist - Live In Agony", the most recent double live album from DESTRUCTION, was released in North America on October 13, 2009 and in Europe on September 25, 2009 via AFM Records.
