The Curse of the Antichrist - Live i n Agony
Style: Thrash Metal
Release date: September 25th 2009

DESTRUCTION is certainly one of the leading bands in the German thrash metal scene and they have been spitting out loud music for more than 25 years now. And I don’t think they are about to retire... they certainly sound as fresh as always.


This 2-CD live album called ‘The Curse of the Antichrist – Live in Agony’ has turned out to be one hell of a statement for DESTRUCTION. – They are alive and well and they thrash like there’s no tomorrow, of course.


This 2-CD album is recorded live in Wacken in 2007 and from a tour in Asia if I’m correct. The band is joined on stage of several guests such as; Bobby “Blitz” from OVERKILL, Oddleif Stensland from COMMUNIC, Peavy from RAGE and former members of DESTRUCTION.


We are treated with songs such as; “The Butcher strikes Back”, “Mad Butcher”, the fantastic “Thrash Till Death”, “Unconscious Ruins”, “Death Trap”, “Metal Discharge” and many more. It all ends with a favourite of mine namely the awesome; “Bestial Invasion”.


DESTRUCTION is in excellent shape and any self respecting thrasher should definitely at least give this 2-CD set a listen.
