DESTRUCTION Cover Artwork For Born To Perish Released

Legendary German thrashers,  DESTRUCTION , have revealed the cover artwork to their upcoming 17th studio album ,  Born To Perish .  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.  He has also produced a trailer where you can follow the creation of the artwork. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyOZVrtWr_o   The album will be released on August 9th, 2019 via  Nuclear Blast.    Gyula  states  "Schmier wanted to get a simple and different image than my previous    DESTRUCTION    covers. When we discussed the new concept, I was happy with this approach because I had the chance to use a different tool, no painting but ink-drawing style.    When the band mentioned the album title, I got the idea of a crest composition without the typical brave lion or eagle but vultures with two heads and we filled the image with several symbols. I love this   DESTRUCTION    cover - maybe my fave I did for them so far!"   Mastermind  Schmier  adds:  "We wanted something basic this time. I had something like an emblem in mind, a stamp, a   DESTRUCTION    coat of arms. We had so many great colorful graphical covers in the past, this dark album title needed something different. This record marks the debut of the four piece    DESTRUCTION   again, I am very happy with the result and that the great    Gyula    understood right away what direction we wanna go - the album is vicious, dark and hard hitting, the cover-art is the perfect prelude for that!“     Born To Perish   was recorded in January & February 2019 with  VO Pulver (PRO-PAIN, BURNING WITCHES, NERVOSA etc.)   at  Little Creek Studios in Switzerland  and is the first  DESTRUCTION  album featuring  Randy Black  on the drums and new 2nd guitar shredder  Damir Eskic!     Check out this short teaser and listen to the very first snippets of the upcoming album:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMf6eJwFlpE    Tour dates:  21.06.              D         Duisburg - Rage Against Racism 06.07.              HR       Pula - GoatHell Metal Fest 07. - 10.08.     CZ        Jaroměř - Brutal Assault 08. - 10.08.     D         Schlotheim - Party.San Open Air 16.08.              BG       Varna - Rock Fest 31.08.              A          Breitenstein - Metal Escalation Festival    »Killfest 2019 - Part II«   w/ OVERKILL, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM  12.09.              P          Porto - Hard Club 13.09.              E          Madrid - La Riviera 14.09.              E          Barcelona - Salamandra 17.09.              D         Saarbrücken - Garage 18.09.              D         Nuremberg - Hirsch 19.09.              D         Oberhausen - Turbinenhalle 22.09.              D         Herford - X 23.09.              D         Wiesbaden - Schlachthof 24.09.              B          Antwerp - Trix   08./09.11.       D         Weissenhäusser Strand/Ostsee - Metal Hammer Paradise 07.12.              D         Balingen - Crazy X-Mas  More info coming soon.
