Destructor 

Forever in Leather (Auburn)

1615946.t.jpg
The thrash revival is so pervasive that Cleveland's Destructor has finally released its second album — 22 years after its debut, Maximum Destruction. And the destruction still goes all the way to 11. Or, at the very least, to 8 — depending on how you like your thrash served. Destructor plays power thrash based on the East Coast model: There are no multi-movement epic songs here, just locked-in 4/4 rage. Singer and bassist Dave Overkill splits his time between apocalyptic battles and all-night keggers. The band's press kit refers to the crew as "thrash legends." Screw that. Forever in Leather firmly establishes Destructor, once and for all, as metal reality.
