A thrash assault will hit parts of Australia in November as 4ARM is scheduled to tour the country with German thrash legends Destruction and Australian band Mortal Sin, playing 4 shows across Australia as part of the bands Pre Album Launch Tour. The run of shows kicks off in Adelaide on the 3rd of November and ends on the 6th of November in Brisbane.
Destruction is legendary in thrash circles, and the best news of all is that they are back. Not only with a new album, but thrash fans all over the country will be warming up their necks for some serious head-banging at the news that Destruction will be touring Australia this November. Joining them for the ride will be Australian thrash pioneers, Mortal Sin.
For almost 30 years, the name Destruction has been almost synonymous with high energy thrash. The south German act has never veered from its ethos of never backing down from creating pure thrash. Now, the three-piece are back with another thrash metal gem, Day Of Reckoning, and will be unleashing it upon Australian audiences.. Released earlier this year, the album shows the band at its most fierce, brutal and thrashy. Here Destruction pays tribute to their roots and easily revive that old school speedy feeling.
Says vocalist Schmier of the album, “If you think Destruction is an old band, this album will prove you wrong! The speed and energy combined with a basic, fresh and aggressive production will make this record an outstanding classic of our long discography.”
Beginning way back in 1985, Mortal Sin, could probably be considered Australia’s first thrash metal band. Its first album, Mayhemic Destruction, saw them gain much attention at home and abroad, while a quiet period during the 1990’s saw them emerge again in 2004 for a tour with Anthrax and a European tour. Now in 2011, the band are set to release their newest epic, Psychology Of Death, on September 23.
Having just completed its third album, Submission For Liberty, 4ARM is chomping at the bit for its release. By joining this tour, fans are given the opportunity to experience some of the album’s ferocity and supercharged riffage in a live setting, before it’s 2012 release.
This triple header of thrash will be devastating metal fans around the country. So get on board and do not miss Destruction causing devastation and ruin in a town near you.
