DESTRUCTION entered Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark on April 21 with producer Jacob Hansen to begin recording its new album, "D.E.V.O.L.U.T.I.O.N." An August 29 European release is expected.

"Celebrating 25 years of DESTRUCTION is, of course, an additional motivation to record a new classic," DESTRUCTION frontman Marcel "Schmier" Schirmer previously stated. "But the band has never before been so well prepared for a recording, and the new material is very dynamic crashing straight in your face! All thrash maniacs can now look forward to a merciless and varied album which will put its predecessors in the shade! Beware!!"

There are also plans for a full DESTRUCTION DVD release later in the year all in the cause of celebrating one-quarter century of classic German thrash metal with all the faithful fans worldwide.

DESTRUCTION's "Thrash Anthems" album, a collection of reworked/re-recorded versions of the band's classic tracks, was released in January 2007 via AFM Records.
