Group

Destruction is a German thrash metal band. They are considered one of the "The Big Teutonic Four" of the Teutonic thrash metal scene, the others being Kreator, Sodom and Tankard. All three bands except Tankard are often credited with helping pioneer death metal, by containing several elements of what was to become the genre. Destruction were originally named Knight of Demon, but changed their name in 1984. For most of the 1990s, Destruction were not signed to a major record label and were forced to self-produce their albums until they signed a contract with Nuclear Blast in the 2000s.
