Hey guys, Sean again. After interviewing the awesome Lost Society, I had the privilege of interviewing a legend of thrash metal and even German heavy metal in general – Destruction! I must admit I was a little apprehensive being a big fan of the band but like with Lost Society I couldn’t be happier with these guys as my first ever solo interviewing experience.
I spoke with bassist/vocalist Schmier about how the band found their first gig after a long time in Scotland, Destruction’s history now that they are in their third decade of existence as a band, their thoughts on the new thrash generation, their future plans for next year, as well as a little bit about Schmier’s new project with Herman Frank and Stefan Schwarzmann of Accept – Panzer.
Again like the guys from Lost Society, Schmier and guitarist Mike Sifringer from Destruction (who joined us just before the end of the interview) were some of the coolest, friendliest guys I’ve ever met and were awesome on my first interview experience. Hopefully we can catch up with all the bands on this tour some time soon in the future!
