PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t think that I have to convince anyone about the power of DT on the live concert stage as it’s like being on a Heavy Metal Rollercoaster in terms of all the frenetic chaos that their songs bring to life. I caught them several months ago in NYC and am happy that we are finding them coming back for another go at the Big Apple. Fans here really enjoy when this band visits and they know it. Let’s add to this the energetic Warbringer who have now signed onto Napalm Records and are performing with what I understand to be several new members. Fans in my region were no stranger to this band as they were on so many supporting lists it was not funny. I’m interested in hearing how they’ve changed since the last time I happened to catch them. It’s been a while. The only new band for me comes care of Striker and some of my Metal Media buddies have been speaking highly of them so I need to check them out. What do you readers think of this new tour? Will you be hitting one of the many appearances that we are getting out of them? Let me know down in the comments section below.

So today was a bit of a wash here at the Metal Command HQ and inclement weather found Nuclear Blast Recording artists Amorphis having their show postponed until an as yet undetermined date. This bummed out a lot of the Metal Republic who were heading there but I can understand the whole safety first stuff. The blizzard wasn’t as bad as anticipated but travel was still a pain in the a$$. Anyway, with lots more time on my hands it was great to receive the press details about the upcoming tour by Destruction and all of that scoop is below for your enjoyment. Dig in.
The Press Release:
Legendary German thrashers DESTRUCTION have announced the “North American Under Attack” tour. The trek will begin in Oakland, CA on May 22nd and hit 19 cities including Chicago, New York, and Atlanta before concluding in Los Angles at The Regent Theater on June 11th. Direct support will come from both Los Angeles thrash metallers WARBRINGER and Wisconsin death Metallers JUNGLE ROT.
Mastermind Schmier states:
“The Under Attack tour will finally come to North America. Sorry for the little delay, but it has been a busy and successful run so far in other countries and we are looking forward to bringing it to North America. With WARBRINGER and JUNGLE ROT, we are bringing two crushing bands that are friends and fit very well on this old-school billing.
America was never easy to tour for foreign thrash bands, and that’s why it’s always special for us. You just never know when it’s going to be the last time as it is not going to get easier in the future.
So come out to thrash and party with us and of course the set list will feature a lot of 80’s classics as we as we are working on THRASH ANTHEMS II at the moment. See you in the pit! ”

Enforcer and Warbringer are on a co-headlining run and they’ll be joined by Cauldron, Exmortus and Surgical Strike. NYC is going to start off the New Metal Year 2016 in good Thrashing fashion with this one.
