Destructo are a band from the Netherlands that plays a blackened form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2021 album "Demonic Possession" which will be released in November by Dying Victims Productions.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the album while a small amount of melody is also added into some of the guitar riffing. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic yet old school style along with the riffs also adding in a great amount of thrash and first wave black emtal elements.
Vocals are done in mostly an 80's growling style that is close to the earlier days of death metal while black metal screams are also utilized at times. D beats are also added into some of the drums along with the faster sections of the songs also adding in some blast beats and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music also adding in a good amount of speed metal and rock'n'roll influences as well as all of the songs also sticking to a heavier direction. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism, Necromancy, Drugs and Insanity themes.
In my opinion Destructo are a very great sounding blackened thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Succubus" "Necromancy" "Total Death" and Demonic Possession". 8 out of 10.
