Sounds | Destruction, Reject Emotions

Destruction zijn al jarenlang ons vertrouwd bastion voor degelijke thrashmetal met Teutoonse inslag. Onlangs verruilden deze veteranen de stal van Nuclear Blast voor die van Napalm Records. En daar laten ze geen gras over groeien! De eerste release bij het nieuwe label wordt immers meteen een live album/DVD/BluRay, Live Attack! getiteld.

Live Attack! is de registratie van een bijna twee uur durende livestream die de band in januari van dit jaar uitzond. Daarin stonden hun jongste album Born to Perish (2019) centraal maar evengoed de klassiekers en fan favorites van de band.

Reject Emotion is zeker zo'n publiekslieveling. En terecht! De song blijft na al die jaren nog steeds overeind. De beelden van de livestream worden vermengd met die van een televisie optreden uit de jaren '80. De poedelkapsels zijn gelukkig verdwenen.


SCHMIER states: “The die-hards voted for ‘Reject Emotions’ to be on the setlist at this special show on our social media pages. We did not perform this fan favorite in its full length since the 80s, cause it was written for two guitars. Most fans know, it is actually the first song we ever wrote as a four-piece. This is why we chose this as a single now for our BluRay release. It is a very rare live track, finally played again with the power of two axes, the way it was meant to be! A cult song that always had a special place in our metal-hearts! The flashback shots from the 80s in honor of the old line up build a bridge to our history and will hopefully bring back some joy and good memories for many supporters!”

DESTRUCTION on their first release with Napalm Records: “This show at our fave club, the Z7 in Switzerland, was a really special one in the middle of this dreadful pandemic! When we recorded it as a live stream on the 1st of January, it gave us hope back and connected us with the fans worldwide! Many supporters demanded to release it in physical form, so we had to make it happen. The setlist reflects four decades of DESTRUCTION with an almost two hour best-of setlist, which includes some really rare live tracks! It was for sure a night to remember… we hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!"
