Sometimes we hang out in social media for relax and suddenly notice something enthralling to share with others. I saw recently a funny question on Facebook. Somebody asked what would never say true metalhead? Some ideas:
Maria: “You know how Sister Berta always makes me kiss the floor after we’ve had a disagreement? Well, lately I’ve taken to kissing the floor whenever I see her coming, just to save time.”
Kurt: “I haven’t had so much fun since the day we put glue on Fräulein Josephine’s toothbrush.”
Captain von Trapp: “You have brought music back in to my life. I had forgotten.”
Captain von Trapp: “The first rule of this household is discipline.”
Captain von Trapp: “Oh, how clumsy of me – I meant to accuse you.”

Wait. Wait. Wait. Let’s take what you want but who the heck is Post Malone? What all of these people have common with Destruction tour?
We pretend to raise our kids in the most positive way
For real we educate sheep that fulfill the cliché
We built an empire of lies to damage the helpless the stranded
A business model backhanded
Destruction “Filthy Wealth”
Don’t be a metal sheep! True metalhead can say and can do whatever she / he desires to say and do. Take inspiration from any source you like. More sources mean more diversified experiences. The more joy you experience in life, the more creative you become so then you can assess what is worth your attention and what is a cliché (your original thought vs foolish stereotype).
Take for instance Destruction “Born to Perish” and “Sound of Music” by Robert Wise. https://www.sound-of-music.com/
Thrash metal album is new and aggressive (09.08.2019) while the musical drama seems to be somehow odd. You know, film from 1965, long before Exciter created extreme metal (my interview with Exciter https://musictivity.org/2019/09/20/exciter-interview-tour/ ). It can be strange for you 😉 but remember that metal is also peculiar for many unexperienced listeners. Good art often demands time to be understood. “Sound of Music” tells a heartwarming story which happened exactly in the same city where Destruction will perform the concert soon (Salzburg, Austria, 03.12.2019) so open your mind and enter the world of contradictions: Robert Wise together with Destruction.

Compare this atmosphere with traditional Destruction thrash metal.

Schmier could play in blizzard of Ozz and ask: “who is Robert Wise? I know Pennywise. I don’t know Robert Wise!” Nevermind. Przemyslaw’s cracked brain.
Destruction is considered as a leader and one of the best ensemble ever on German thrash metal scene (similar bands: Exumer, Kreator, Minotaur, Sodom, Mekong Delta, Tankard). Perhaps their best album is “Release From Agony” but it was recorded in 1987. Current line-up: Schmier (bassist, vocalist), Mike (guitarist), Randy Black (drummer, also member of heavy metal super group Level 10) and Damir Eskić (lead guitarist from Switzerland). These very experienced and open minded musicians are currently on European leg of “Wings Over Europe” tour with Overkill and Flotsam and Jetsam.
