As most of you know, last weekend we had two shows under special Corona restrictions, at the Z7 in Switzerland. We have captured this moment and decided to release an aftermovie about this special event in these difficult times.
Check out the video on YouTube:

Vocalist Schmier states:“I am very glad that our film-team could capture those moments, the first shows after the loosening of the rules in Switzerland for concerts, were for sure a special moment for all of us. The fans did a very good job and the social distancing worked pretty well. For sure much better than in the supermarket or on public transport these days. We all felt safe & sound and sure you can not completely avoid contact but you can use your common sense. The precautions and government rules have been implemented well and that was important for everybody involved!
It will still be very challenging to bring concerts back into our lives. If masks will be a part of that future or other precautions, will the next weeks show. It is important to take the new challenges and try – instead of doing nothing and just accepting the situation of no shows!
DESTRUCTION will continue this path and play a social distancing Open Air close to Berlin in August. A concept that works for a while in Germany and now this now the first METAL show in that format.
Thanks for all the support & stay healthy and aware!”

Thanks for the great weekend Z7 - aftermovie announced!

Thanks to everybody that came and supported the shows at the Z7 in Switzerland. The fans were really disciplined and safty was granted well and peaceful! Many have asked us how it was, so we decided to film an aftermovie about these events.

Here we have a trailer for the aftermovie from last weekend.

The movie itself will be released next week. We understand & appreciate that the interest in the events are very big, as we were one of the first international touring bands having concerts after the lockdown ended here in Europe.
Watch the trailer on YouTube:

Vocalist SCHMIER states:
“When we heard that our fave club Z7 is doing concerts under government restrictions, we were amazed by the fact cause we all know that the prognosis for shows this year was very low.”

“Switzerland has very low Corona cases and moves ahead as a role-model at the moment. When we got invited to play, I read the precautions and restrictions for concerts in the country and there is a lot of substance in their catalogue of measures. Social distancing only works with common sense, so we all need to learn how to live with it!“

“The shows turned out great, the people were really respectful and we have decided to film the event. So our team is working on an after-movie and a live mix till next week now, the world need to see that there is HOPE for the music business!!!

"Yes it will not be easy but we can do it, step by step and all together!”

More news very soon – thanks for the worldwide support we have received!


We are proud to release a new live video from our live album "Born To Thrash - Live In Germany". Please check out the new video on YouTube


We have a double strike of good news for DESTRUCTION fans today: After the concert in Pratteln sold out within days, we are thrilled to announce a second show together with POLTERGEIST and COMANIAC for July 3rd.
Once again, the tickets are very limited due to governmental restrictions. Get yours here: CLICK HERE

Also we reveal a new trailer for the "Born To Thrash - Live In Germany" album in which Schmier remembers all his "first times" with the band. Check out his memories and anecdotes on YouTube!

First night at Z7 sold out - second concert added on July 3rd!

Hey Metalheads - our show with POLTERGEIST & TOTAL ANNIHILATION on Saturday the 4th of July at the Z7 in Pratteln/Switzerland is sold out – thanks a lot for that!

Because of the high demand the club has now added a second show on Friday the 3rd of July. New opening band will be COMANIAC.
Tickets on sale here now: CLICK HERE
The Swiss law allows bigger shows now from the 1st of July only under very special circumstances, so the Z7 crew decided to add a second gig instead. The separation of the crowd would be complicated and unpleasent for everybody involved.

We are very happy with this decision, hopefully see those of you who could not get a ticket yet, on Friday then! 🤘😃
