Destruction is a German thrash metal band formed in Lörrach, Germany in 1982. They originally started under the name Knight of Demon. They soon changed their name to Destruction and released two demos. They are also known as one of the three big names of Teutonic thrash metal; the others are Kreator and Sodom.

They recorded their first demo in 1984 entitled Bestial Invasion of Hell, and released their debut studio album Infernal Overkill in 1985. The original line-up consisted of vocalist/bassist Marcel Schmier, drummer Tommy Sandman, and guitarist Mike Sifringer.

Schmier left the band before the release of 1990's Cracked Brain, replaced by André Grieder. At this point Mike Sifringer was the only original member in the band. Grieder left and was replaced by Thomas Rosenmerkel. Rosenmerkel stayed on for two EP's during the 90's and the band's infamous The Least Successful Human Cannonball, which the band no

DESTRUCTION Sentence of Death

EP · 1984 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Sentence of Death" is an EP release by German thrash metal act Destruction. The EP was released through Steamhammer Records in November 1984. Destruction were formed as Knight of Demon in 1982, but soon changed their name to the current monicker. They released the "Bestial Invasion of Hell" demo in early 1984, but "Sentence of Death" is their first official label release.

While Destruction would go on to earn great success in the 80s as one of the three teutonic thrash metal leaders from Germany along with Sodom and Kreator, the quality of the material and just about everything about this release don´t exactly reveal why that is. The 6 tracks on the 19:33 minutes long EP are all raw, noisy and savage heavy metal with occasional thrashy leanings. Not completely unlike the most raw output by Venom. Three tracks from the "Bestial Invasion of Hell" demo have been re-recorded and included here in "Mad Butcher", "Total Desaster", and "Satan's Vengeance".

The playing is untight and sloppy, probably as a consequence of the band members young age and limited playing skills, and the time they had to record the EP. The sound production is noisy, raw and amaturish. Pretty much a mess to listen to. It´s a bit hard to judge "Sentence of Death" in retrospective, because the world of metal looked very different back when this EP was released, and it was probably one of the most raw pieces of metal released at the time. It´s also often hailed as a great influence on the black metal genre and I can understand why that is. As an individual entity it´s a bit hard on the ears though and influential or not a 2.5 star (50%) rating is warranted.

In the 1980s, three bands stood out supreme above all others in the German thrash scene: the precise audio violence of Kreator, the sheer Motörhead-on-steroids bludgeon of Sodom, and the over-the-top insanity of Destruction.

While the careers of Kreator and Sodom continued from strength to strength into the 1990s and beyond, Destruction got a bit left behind. ‘Sentence Of Death’ demonstrates why.

First off, the studio was mightily unkind to Schmier and the gang. Live, the band was probably as heavy as you like, but the production job on ‘Sentence Of Death’ sounds like the band are playing at one end of a football pitch, while the sound engineer was doing shuttle runs with the microphone at the other. Yes, even the basics like evening out the volume are wrong. After straining to hear one song, you’re blasted out of the room by the volume of the next.

The most important thing in any metal band is the guitar. The riffing is suitably sharp, and the solos manic. Unfortunately being a three piece, you either get one or the other. It seems that even the most basic of studio tricks, like multi-tracking the guitar so that the rhythm continues during solos, are only used intermittently. Schmier’s bass is quite twangy, so it doesn’t fill much of the gap. While it could be argued it gives an almost live representation of the band, in hindsight decades after the recording, it is simply distracting.

The drumming is a tad simplistic, and playing fills often means dropping the beat. There’s little more than a high speed four-on-the-floor beat, but it suits the overall feel of the band pretty well.

Schmier’s vocals are totally insane, and his grasp of English is tenuous at best. At times, he drowns out everything else with his hoarse shout. His German accent slurs a lot of the lyrics, to great comic effect. When he’s not shouting, Schmier loves emitting enormous banshee screams, sometimes for no good reason. However, songs like “Total Desaster” and “Mad Butcher” still remain all time classics.

Despite the sound problems, Destruction fucking shred! There is no doubting the band’s enthusiasm or intensity, and they knew how to write metal songs. It is possible to hear the embryonic roots of many a death metal band’s sound here. At times, the bleak production and frantic playing hint toward the wild sounds of proto-black metal like early Bathory.

On paper, it might look like Destruction have been overrated by thrash fans looking back too fondly with rose tinted glasses, but it’s more a case of the end product being far greater than the sum of the parts. Sure, there are severe problems with the sound, but metal isn’t always about everything being perfectly clean and exactly executed. In this case, it’s about energy, enthusiasm, and having a good old thrash.

It’s amazing to think that these guys are still at it, some thirty years since they started and aren’t showing any signs of slowing down yet. Destruction released their first demo back in ’84 with their debut album the following years and both Mike (guitars) and Schmier (bass/vocals) have been there from the beginning, although they were joined by Vaaver in 2010. This is powerful Teutonic Thrash in the vein of Kreator at al and a damn fine romp it is too. They have set out their stall and welcomed those who want an album to get rid of the dandruff and get a neck ache into the bargain. There is nothing dramatically new, and to be honest there isn’t anything here that makes the listener stand up and pay close attention, but it is incredibly tight and is exactly what one would expect from the band.

Is it going to gain them new hordes of followers? Probably not, but if you want metal that is honest and out there then you can’t go wrong with this. I have never seen these guys in concert, but I can imagine that the audience is a sweaty nasty mosh pit if this is anything to go by. Put it on and play it loud, it is definitely the only way to listen to it. www.nuclearblast.de

Metal is my fuel...

Genre: thrash f*ckin' metal

There's The Big Four and there's The Teutonic Three, and Destruction is one of the Teutonic Three (Sodom and Kreator being the two others). And just like German cars and German ham, German thrash metal is something you just cannot live without once you've tried it.

The music on this album is aggressive, technical but still simple enough that most people will be able to follow it, and full of energetic and classic riffs galore. It's simply good old German thrash: awesome! It certainly goes right to my old school heart.

The limited edition version also contains a really good cover version of Dio's "Stand Up and Shout".

There really isn't a lot to say about this album other than "If you, like me' are a fan of old school thrash metal, go and buy it"!

After the return of original singer/bassist Marcel Schirmer to Destruction's camp and released "All Hell Breaks Loose" in 2000, attention began to diverted to the band but not until they released "The Antichrist" in 2001 that fans really admitted that Destruction was back in form again. Beside a destructive classic thrash groove found inside, check out the blazing skull on the front sleeve, could have been the coolest cover of the year. With rave reviews everywhere and looks like a comeback masterpiece, "The Antichrist" in my opinion, falls hard on the imbalanced songs composition even though most of the songs are spectacular.

The first half of the album is much better than the second with the first four tracks are really a brilliant thrash definition. After the typical thrashcoustical intro, Destruction started abusing their instruments with flaming riffs on "Thrash Till Death" and Vormann's notable powerful drummings is clearly the song's highlight. "Nailed To The Cross" on the other hand, showed the vocal mastery of Schirmer, furiously screaming out its superb chorus. "Dictators of Cruelty" and "Bullets From Hell" displayed an aggressive rhythm and alternately pushed Schirmer's vocal and Vormann's brutal beats to the front. Sifringer's guitar actually launched some insane riffs, but most of the time, he sounded predictable and some riffs are quite decent.

Tracks like "Meet Your Destiny", "Godfather of Slander", or "Let Your Mind Rot" are examples of the weaker parts of "The Antichrist". His solos aren't very memorable and outstanding either. My most fave part of the second half is "Creations of The Underworld", I really think it has a beautiful riffage pattern and definitely a great track to love. The production is crisp and very good but to rate this as unbeatable is way too much, I guess 3.5 stars is deserved for a good release like this, especially to quench the thirst for long-time Destruction and Teutonic thrash fans.
