Schmier states: “The most spontaneous release in our history is finally out now. It presents the new line up in a very pure and raw way! A live album is nowadays kind of out of fashion, but this one might save the future of our band!
I wanna say thanks to ALL those who supported the unconventional idea of survival. We are gonna look back at this release in some years with a different perspective and gratefulness! Thanks a lot for the support & stay safe!”

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
