DESTRUCTION @ Hard Club, 2019/09/12

This gallery contains 42 photos.

Original Portuguese version on World Of Metal. I believe when DESTRUCTION named their band in 1982 they were thinking about the kind of sound they were aiming for. I wonder if they already knew back then that it would also match … Continue reading
