On April 8th, the Metal world was finally able to rejoice and celebrate DESTRUCTION’S 40th anniversary with the release of their hard-hitting, full-length album, “Diabolical!”
With their newest single, “Repent Your Sins”, the German Thrash Metal unit sound bigger and better than before, displaying their unbeatable skill as pioneers of Thrash metal, having never once slowed down.
Being their 15th studio record, DESTRUCTION brings out the big guns with no room for negotiation. You’re locked, loaded, and fired right into the ninth level of hell with this ballistic Metal performance filled with back-breaking sounds like no other.
DESTRUCTION singer/bassist SCHMIER about the new video:
“The music and the song itself shows the more groovy part of the new record. I love the diminished riff and the way Randy grinds the beat into your head! This will be an awesome LIVE track for sure! The lyrics of REPENT are about the history of abuse in the Catholic church! A rather tragic and sad part of human history, that is still covered up by our governments. It seems the laws that count for all of us do not apply for servants of the church. UNREAL INJUSTICE!“
“The video itself tries to show the soul torment of the culprit. To live with your dirty deeds but pray about love and kindness can not be justified and needs to be accused, named, remembered and wiped out!”
The video is a crimson-painted Metal dream – perfectly showing off the common Metal scene notes with studded vests, dark palettes, and long, head-banging hair.
Drums are strong and in-your-face throughout, with bass keeping a solid pattern to follow and guitars pulling out the heavy, dark notes we all know and love. Crippling, over-whelming regret and dread weigh on the cloaked figure, as chains swarm and leave them writhing in the agony of their suffering.
This track is a frightening blend of maddening riffs, surprising solos, and well-placed energy. It keeps a steady rhythm, not jumping too far off its melody to get you moving along while having this song settle into the crevices of your mind.
Yet again, another solid drop from the classic Thrash Metal legends, DESTRUCTION.
