5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds "familiar"? Listen deeper... 4 April 2011
By Michael E. Mitchell - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'll admit that on first listen, this new Destruction sounded like most of their post-reunion material. And, to be honest, it IS like that. But this one has a darkness and depth that is hard to pick out until after about 6 listens, and then even harder to describe. For those of you unfamiliar with Destruction, this is mostly fast Thrash, with some spots being more mid-paced while others get super-fast. But mostly just fast. "Day of Reckoning" doesn't (in my opinion) have any songs that are INSTANTLY classic, though a few are instantly memorable. Having embedded every Schmier-fronted Destruction album in my brain, I found this one to flow more successfully, with very few (in fact, NO!)groan-inducing clumsy segues or ill-fitting riffs that bring down an otherwise excellent song, the sort of thing that flawed previous albums. However, the inherent brilliance of this album is strangely hidden, in a way I can't really pin down. The drums and bass and vocals are all very up-front, and the guitars for the most part. Nothing is inaudible in the mix. But many of the complex (but not "prog"-wankery complex)guitar riffs aren't easy to pick out. At first you are impressed with the loud, vicious machinegun attack of the music, but are left feeling "well, more of the same...", but it is not. There ARE indeed riffs comparable to classic-era Destruction here, but somehow they are obscured...I listened closely and they more and more became prominent. Again, I found that Mike has come up with some quite ancient-sounding riffs, which lurk like spectres of the past behind the rhythmic blitzkrieg of the songs' violent drive. VERY difficult to describe! But there are also some very obvious refreshing "gimmicks"(as Schmier likes to say) that add to the listening enjoyment, some vocal patterns hithertofore unheard from Destruction ("Armageddonizer" and "Church of Disgust" come immediately to mind). A lot of parts that are memorable "singalong" choruses, bridges, etc. The lyrics are really spiteful and rebellious, spewing venom on the government pigs that rule/ruin the world, as well as the society of sheep that we MeTal people have to endure. There are a few guest guitar soloists on this, but it is unclear which songs they play on; one will hear some really cool guitar work on this, especially the title track which harkens back to perhaps "Eternal Ban" or "United By Hatred" (YES!!!!!!). The new drummer (Vaaver?) is really good, but I don't know if he had enough time with this material to come up with many pithy parts/ the end, I think the previous drummer (Marc) was better, but Vaaver is certainly bludgeoningly good! Schmier is, like always, exceptional on minor complaint is a few instances of the vocals being too overpowering, with multiple tracking effects (but by no means sounding mechanical or processed)...and we even get to hear a few brief bass-only parts in songs. All the songs are well-rounded, with a few being total winners, with only "The Demon Is God" falling kind've flat for my ears; just a bit too mono-dimensional with a kind've grating chorus that reminded me of the "punkish" parts of Kreator's "Hordes of Chaos" album. Be sure to order a version with the cover of Dio's "Stand Up And Shout", it is really cool and super-heavy. Don't dismiss this album as "more of the same"...listen very closely. I am still finding nuances that I didn't hear before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Destruction Killer! 11 Mar 2011
By Death SPEED - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
New Destruction is another Killer release from Germanys best Metal. Every song is Thrash Metal at its finest, Sounds like it came from the Destructions finest 80's days not like it's better or anything like that better I think its all good but Ya, Crushing release man. Pick it up along with all Destructions albums.
Along side with the latest Thrash releases from bands like Exodus, Artillery, Sodom, Sacrifice.
Can't wait for the the North American tour.

Oh Ya, the DIO cover (Stand up and Shout) is awesome and a good appreciation.

Haven't paid attention to Destruction in a long time. Shame on me. I picked up this album because I heard The Price on a complication album. The song blew me away as did the album when I bought it. Great album from front to back, the Dio cover is worth the price of admission. Much love for Destruction, keep doing what you do!!
