Genre
Thrash Metal

This afternoon in the Metal Digest office, we’re blasting out ‘Infernal Overkill’, the 1985 debut studio album from Destruction. 1985 was a watershed year for Teutonic thrash metal and Destruction were riding the crest of the wave. Unlike their American counterparts, Destruction was raw, dirty and brutal as tracks such as ‘Black Death’, ‘Death Trap’ and the perennial ‘Bestial Invasion’ showed that even in their primitive years, Destruction meant business. Through a wall of noise, pummelling bass drums and thrashing riffs, Destruction found themselves as one of the pillars of Teutonic thrash and to this day, many Destruction fans still class ‘Infernal Overkill’ as their favourite Destruction album. So this afternoon, crank it up loud and deliver a devastating thrash attack to all those around you.
