DESTRUCTO "Demonic Possession" [12" LP, Black Vinyl]
2021 - Black/Thrash from Netherlands
The sound, attitude, and execution of DESTRUCTO is similar to the band's moniker: destructive, merciless, and total f**k-off-driven! Formed in 2018 as a side-project between erstwhile D-dsrit and Nuclear Devastation bandmates Soulcrusher and Mot-rphallus as a tribute to bands like Sarcofago, G.I.S.M., and Japan's Sabbat, DESTRUCTO delivered their debut demo in 2019 - 19 minutes of total & utter destruction! In the meantime, insanity, blasphemy, narcotics, and intoxication all played their part in inspiring DESTRUCTO's debut album, Demonic Possession. Here, the power-trio amplifies those noble influences to a fever pitch while also bringing forward influences from Bathory, Hellhammer, and especially G.I.S.M. With ten songs spanning a skull-crushing 40 minutes, Demonic Possession is a wild fucking ride, even for those prepared to get on in the first place. Cacophonic screams, primitive riffs, bulldozing bass, and berserking D-beats all collide with vocals that approximate a gnarling speedfiend. Put another way, DESTRUCTO makes an even stronger case for being the bastard child of raw and chaotic first-wave black metal blended with an unhealthy dose of '80s speed/thrash metal mania, Mot-rcharged riffs & rock 'n' roll grooves that create the Devil's Rock 'n' Roll! Armed with production that's slicing and slimy in equal measure and an overwhelming sense of danger both in songwriting and especially execution, the question remains: can you handle DESTRUCTO's Demonic Possession? ARGHHH!!
