All Hell Breaks Loose (CD)
The Butcher Strikes Back - Devastating Thrash Attack!"There's no better way to hit the nail on the head than with this quote from "The Butcher Strikes Back" DESTRUCTION are back. And they haven't forgotten a thing !After legions of bands paid homage to them ,particularly during the second half of the nineties, with countless cover versions or cheekily 'borrowed' riffs, DESTRUCTION present themselves now the way we knew them and missed them.In the Eighties, DESTRUCTION already had an exceptional status.

Sven is also responsible for some pretty fierce backing vocals too.The reunion was THE sensation of summer 1999. DESTRUCTION warmed up by playing diverse gigs (e.g. Wacken and Bang Your Head Festivals) where not only old and new fans but also musicians by the dozen fell to thei
