Faster - Harder - Tighter - THRASH! Destruction are a German thrash metal band. They are considered one of the "three kings" of the Teutonic thrash metal scene, the others being Kreator and Sodom. Despite an almost constantly changing line-up, (and a ten-year hiatus from 1989 to 1999), the band has maintained it's legacy both within their native country as well as the thrash faithful across the world by releasing quality breakneck albums and touring zealously to support them. With the thrash revival movement started in the mid-2000's, the younger generation is looking to their heroes for inspiration and guidance and Destruction is never one to disappoint.
