German thrash metal giants Destruction have signed with Napalm Records. After a decade-long history with Nuclear Blast, the group has decided to enter a new chapter. These thrashers are already working on the follow-up to 2019’s Born to Perish, expected to arrive later this year. 


Bassist/vocalist Schmier comments:

“Well, this decision was a long way coming! We are super excited to join the Napalm family, because I have been a fan of the label and their philosophy for a long time. I’ve followed their impressive history and great work for many years and have recommended Napalm Records to other bands and friends before. So now it was finally time for us to move on and be a part of their roster of fantastic artists. A strong and fresh partner for these crucial years of our career is an important step for us!  We were using the time well to prepare new releases for our faithful fans worldwide, more news about that very soon!”


Napalm Records A&R Sebastian Muench adds:

“I am absolutely excited to work with such a legendary band as Destruction! I watched them play live in Frankfurt when I was 14 years old, and now working together as a team on new album releases is a dream come true! Welcome to the Napalm family!”
