Born to perish? This statement does not apply to the Thrash Metal legends Destruction, though their new album "Born To Perish" will certainly create a furor on August 9th. The brand-new line-up featuring the Canadian drum animal Randy Black (Primal Fear, Annihilator) and Swiss shred-master Damir Eskic, together with veterans Schmier and Mike, is here to bring you musical Destruction. This is a new chapter in the long, impressive history of the band. "Born To Perish" starts like a thunder clap, immediately hitting you with the title song - skipping any intro or frippery. This is classic Thrash Metal, like the following bone breaking 'Inspired By Death', the heavy but catchy tune 'Betrayal' and the raised middle finger 'Rotten'. Since 1982 when Destruction was first founded, they've never once lost their aggressiveness.
