Destruction are a German thrash metal band. They are considered one of the “three kings” of the Teutonic thrash metal scene, the others being Kreator and Sodom. All three of these bands are often credited with helping pioneer black metal by containing several elements of what was to become the genre. Destruction were originally named Knight of Demon, but changed their name in 1984. For most of the 1990s, Destruction were not signed to a major record label and were forced to self-produce their albums until they signed a contract with Nuclear Blast in the 2000s.
A European tour with Overkill was scheduled for March 2011. Headlining dates in South America and North America were being planned for April and May.
The band’s latest album, Spiritual Genocide, was released in November 23, 2012
