- Iconic thrash metal band DESTRUCTION have revealed the cover artwork to their upcoming album Under Attack. This stunning visualization was created by acclaimed artist Gyula from Hungary, who has also created artwork for ANNIHLATOR, GRAVE DIGGER, STRATOVARIUS, TANKARD and many more.
- “I had the vision of the exploding earth with the DESTRUCTION skull as continents before we even had the title,” commented the band. “Never has the earth and every individual been so Under Attack: whether it’s environmental issues, wars or politics and media madness, we just destroy everything that we love! The cover brings together the classical concepts of the band’s history and fits in well with the discography…but unfortunately it also represents the current state of the world today!”
The band started the recording sessions for Under Attack after the summer festivals last year and have been recording segments in various studios between September 2015 and January 2016. So far, they have completed the drum recordings with Martin Buchwalter at Gernhart Studios in Germany, as well as completing some basic recordings, mixing and mastering with VO Pulver at Little Creek Studios in Switzerland.
Under Attack is tentatively scheduled for May 13 via Nuclear Blast Records.
