German Thrash Legends DESTRUCTION Introduce New Drummer Randy Black!

German thrash metal icons and legends DESTRUCTION have just introduced new band member, Randy Black. Black will take his place behind the skins for the band after a long probation period touring with the band. Check out more info on Black down below.

From The Press Release

German thrash metal legends DESTRUCTION are pleased to officially welcome Randy Black (Annihilator, Primal Fear) into the fold, after a grueling probation that involved an extensive tour and many shows around the globe.

Randy will make his official debut as the band’s new drummer at the Wacken-Open-Air on August 3rd, 2018.

Mastermind Schmier states:
“Many years ago, when Randy was still with PRIMAL FEAR and we were looking for a drummer, it was the first time we talked about DESTRUCTIONs open drummer seat. But we did not wanna approach them at that time because of his obligation with good friends. Some years later he filled in for VAAVER on the American Tour with SEPULTURA because Vaaver became a father again at that time. So it was obvious for me, to pass the baton to Randy first this time. And he blew us all away with his tight, groovy and over the top drumming. He’s also a very cool Canadian lad that lives in Germany for many years now – so it was a perfect match right away! Hell-come on board buddy!”

Guitar player Mike adds:
“It ´s surely not easy to replace an outstanding drummer like VAAVER !!! But the Show must go on, and RANDY kicks in like a motherfucker… solid , groovy, heavy, humble….He´s on fire !!! Get prepared my friends …”

And the new DESTRUCTION drummer Randy commented:
“After a recent successful tour of Asia, Australia and a handful of great festival shows I’m very happy to announce my position as the new drummer for the Thrash Metal Legends DESTRUCTION35 years running! Try to wrap your head around that! I’m looking forward to continuing the Destruction legacy together with Schmier and Mike including plans of recording a kick ass new CD and touring the planet. I’m chomping at the bit to get out there and Thrash for all you crazy Metal heads on the road soon!“

About Michael Juvinall (6160 Articles)
I am a devoted husband and father. I have been a voracious horror fan since the early age of 5 and metal fan since I was 14. I watch all horror films but my great loves are classic horror films: Universal Monsters, Werewolves, Hammer Horror and an all-around affinity for things that go bump in the night! I'm also a huge fan of extreme metal music.
