They are known as one of the “Three Kings Of Teutonic Thrash” and their name is Destruction. Sonically they are a no holds barred assault on the fabric of Heavy Metal music and its been a couple of years since we found them paying our region a visit. Tonight that would end with the band locking in a gig at the still kind of new Marlin Room space in NYC’s Webster Hall. For those who are still curious about this one, its the space on the middle level of the Webster Hall building and it holds about 500 people depending on the setup. Destruction would be bringing along both Krisiun and Widow as their national acts and start the fans off with some talented local support.

Fans of the Teutonic Titans Of Thrash will surely be appeased with the news that Schmier will be bringing Destruction to North America in the tail end of March and while the folks at Homeland Security need not be concerned since it’s not “THAT” kind of Destruction, you can rest assured that our celebration of March Metal Madness will likely be intensified when they stop here in NYC. More from me after the poster and the press release.
It’s been a couple of years since we have had the pleasure of the Metal company that is Germany’s Destruction in New York City but tonight with a brand new album under their belt, Schmier and company would return and play a gig at the Highline Ballroom. The mood was intense and the atmosphere a crazy one. Click the logo below to see the full on concert report and some photos on the main PiercingMetal.com website.
There is no real “marquee” for the shows that hit the Highline and while that displeases me in terms of something else to photograph, there was a cool tour poster that I have included below for your visual indulgence.
In my narrative I mentioned how the crowd was something impressive this evening in terms of movement and overall response to the band. Here are a couple of shots of them during the all too brief lulls in the insanity.
Feeling brave? I wasn’t…..Heh.
Destruction are one of the true leaders in no holds barred Thrash Metal so it was great to find the German trio invading the stage B.B. King Blues Club tonight. The show would be my first time ever catching them in concert and that kind of gig is always exciting when its presenting something new to your eyes and ears. Destruction would be touring with both Krisiun and Mantic Ritual as their support so to learn more just click the logo below to be taken to our item on the main PiercingMetal.com site.
