DESTRUCTION is set to celebrate their 40th anniversary by releasing a new studio album, “Diabolical”, on April 8, 2022 via Napalm Records.
On their 15th studio record, DESTRUCTION plan to totally slay their fanbase. The title track “Diabolical”, has been released with its accompanying music video seen below.
DESTRUCTION singer/bassist Schmier states about the video: “I love the title track of the new record, it represents the album, pure old-school and in-your-face thrash metal! We wanted a video that shows our trademarks, so the Mad Butcher had to be there! It is only his second appearance in a DESTRUCTION video ever but his most remarkable one so far for sure.”
DESTRUCTION guitarist Martin Furia states about the new record: “‘Diabolical’ is an album of extremes. Everything is more brutal and more technical but at the same time more melodic and to the point. It’s a pure and devastating DESTRUCTION album with no gimmicks, full of power and adrenaline. I’m excited for what the future is bringing and can’t wait to play the new songs live.”
“Diabolical” will be available in various formats in different territories, including a digital album and CD (bundled with a t-shirt and an exclusive “Mad Butcher” bust), 1LP gatefold editions in black, crystal clear, marbled yellow/red and silver.
