Destruction - Details Of The New Album Revealed

German thrashers Destruction have revealed new details for their upcoming full length. Entitled Born To Perish, it will see the light on August 7th via Nuclear Blast. The band also unveiled the cover artwork, created by acclaimed artist Gyula from Hungary. Born To Perish was recorded in January & February 2019 with VO Pulver at Little Creek Studios in Switzerland and is the first Destruction album featuring Randy Black on the drums and new second guitar shredder Damir Eskic.

Gyula comments on the artwork: "Schmier wanted to get a simple and different image than my previous Destruction covers. When we discussed the new concept, I was happy with this approach because I had the chance to use a different tool, no painting but ink-drawing style. When the band mentioned the album title, I got the idea of a crest composition without the typical brave lion or eagle but vultures with two heads and we filled the image with several symbols. I love this Destruction cover - maybe my fave I did for them so far!"

Mastermind Schmier adds: "We wanted something basic this time. I had something like an emblem in mind, a stamp, a Destruction coat of arms. We had so many great colorful graphical covers in the past, this dark album title needed something different. This record marks the debut of the four piece Destruction again, I am very happy with the result and that the great Gyula understood right away what direction we wanna go - the album is vicious, dark and hard hitting, the cover-art is the perfect prelude for that!"

Sick artwork, even if it does look like a Slayer design. Now we need one or two UK headlining shows. They didn't play for long enough at Killfest.

Yeah, nice cover. the vulture heads could be a bit bigger maybe?
I really look forward to this though, I thought Under Attack was excellent, so this one should be even better with the extra guitarist. It should make for some good songs to play live considering they already sound way better as a 4 piece

If you look closer to the bottom right, you can read the band member's name on the bullets.
Life has given me much, maybe taken more...
