DESTRUCTION are delivering a treat for fans stuck at home and unable to attend live shows: Born To Thrash – Live In Germany is the band’s first live album with the current line-up and is out now digitally on all streaming and download platforms.
To mark this special occasion, the band has released a live video for ‘Curse The Gods’ – watch below.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1LCfd_LZ20&w=560&h=315]
Schmier states, “‘Curse The Gods’ is the first of the three video that we will release until the album is out physically in July. There is no better opener for a DESTRUCTION show, and the song and its lyrics are still a true classic! Still one of my faves to play live, even after all those years! We made it possible for the fans to stream the record now, ahead of the physical album release. Production and promotion normally takes several weeks but unusual times need unusual measures! Nothing is like a LIVE show and we all are missing it!”

Pre-order the physical version, in stores July 17th, here: nblast.de/Destruction-BTT
To include all of their loyal fans in this special release, the band initiated an interactive campaign featuring a map where DESTRUCTION fans could sign in and mark the location of the first time they saw the band live.
The resulting world map will be part of the album and everyone who participated will be mentioned by name on a poster that comes with the strictly limited album’s physical version. The album will be available on Digipack, Black Vinyl, Red Transparent Vinyl and Picture Vinyl on July, 17th. The pre-order is launching soon so stay tuned and keep an eye on both the band and the label social media platforms for more news.
Singer and bassist Schmier comments on the release:
“This live album is the most spontaneous thing we ever did I think! This is the music business, everything usually takes time and the label does not like surprises. But a good friend of ours spontaneously recorded that Party.San show and we had a film team there that weekend cause we were shooting a movie.
