Destructo - 14/05/2019

Today we’re speaking with GG of Destructo, he’s an old friend of my since he was a kid and always had a huge respect for his dedication and passion, and I was happy he stayed at my place and wanted to have a small chat about his new band.

 

Welcome GG at my squad in Killburg! How’s life? Nice you came along after the Roadburn Festival. It’s been a while since we had a chats together!

 

GG: CHEERS MARCO! IT SURE HAS BEEN A WHILE A LONG FUCKING WHILE. LIFE IS BORING AS FUCK, SO WE’RE JUST STAYING FUCKED AND SPITTING ON THE LOCAL ARTSCHOOL BLACK METAL CUNTS. IT’S GOOD TO HAVE A CHAT WITH YOU MATE!

 

 

Let’s jump right into it , how and when did Destructo take form and how’s the Amsterdam scene doing at the moment?

 

GG: DESTRUCTO INITIALLY STARTED AS A SIDE PROJECT BETWEEN JJ AND ME BECAUSE WE HAD TOO MUCH FREE TIME WHEN WE DECIDED TO TAKE THINGS EASIER WITH NUCLEAR DEVASTATION AFTER A ROUGH PERIOD IN OUR LIFES. THE RIGHT ANWSER WAS TO JUST CONVERT THAT MISERY INTO SOME MOTÖRCHARGED HATRED & SATANIC ROCK N ROLL! AS WELL AS TO GIVE A BIG ‘’FUCK YOU’’ TO THOSE FUCKING CUNTS PLAYING ARTSCHOOL BLACK METAL SHITE. LESS PSUEDO-INTELECTUAL BULLSHIT, MORE VENOM WORSHIP!!! THE AMSTERDAM SCENE IS A FUCKING JOKE WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO METAL. FOR HARDCORE/PUNK IT’S A BIT BETTER, BUT ALSO SLOWLY BLEEDING TO DEATH. ALSO THE QUALITY OF THE DRUGS AINT WHAT IT USED TO BE.

 

What bands influenced you and who writes the music and or lyrics in the band? How would you describe the music of Destructo in your own words?

 

GG: OFCOURSE THE ALLMIGHTY SARCOFAGO, NIFELHEIM, EARLY BATHORY AS WELL AS SOME RAW D-TAKT & JAPANESE HARDCORE LIKE GISM, PARANOID, ANTI CIMEX AND SYPHILITIC VAGINAS. OUR MUSIC CAN BE DESCRIBED AS THE DEVILS ROCK N ROLL, OR JUST STRAIGHT UP MOTÖRCHARGED BLACKTHRASH. JJ IS BEHIND MOST OF THE LYRICS AND I CONTRIBUTE A LITTLE BIT TO THEM, THE SONGS ARE USUALLY JUST WRITTEN ON THE SPOT IN THE REHEARSAL ROOM AFTER A PROPER AMPHETAMINE FUELED RITUAL. MOST OF THE LYRICS ARE ABOUT OCCULTISM, DEMONOLOGY AS WELL AS INSANITY AND ALCOHOL!

 

You and JJ Soulcrusher also play in Nuclear Devatation and have several other projects going on and it seems you are a very active maniac in the scene for more than a decade. This is something I already knew since you were in the age of 13 years old and got impressed by your passion and dedication.

 

GG: THAT’S CORRECT. ME AND JJ ALSO PLAY IN DÖDSRIT, TADZIO AND LEMMY OF NUCLEAR DEVASTATION ALSO HAVE DEVOURED ELYSIUM ON THE SIDE, AND TADZIO IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON A NEW PROJECT TOO OF WHICH WE HOPE WILL SEE THE LIGHT SOON.. WE KEEP SPAWNING MORE AND MORE BANDS WHENEVER WE HAVE THE CHANCE.

 

Which 5 new bands do you recommended our readers to check out?

 

GG:

1. CATACOMB VOICES (TOTAL RAW BRAZILIAN BLACK METAL BY THE ALLMIGHTY RUDOLF)

2. PRESSURE PACT (FUCK-OFF CURBSTOMPING HARDCORE FROM TILBURG)

3. RAW PEACE (IMPALING D-BEAT/HARDCORE ASSAULT FROM GHENT)

4. DOGMAN (SOVEREIGN WORSHIP FROM BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA)

5. ABSOLUT (NOT VERY NEW, BUT THE FINEST SWEDISH D-BEAT FROM CANADA)

 

Last words and future plans for Destructo?

 

GG: DRINKING BEER, SMOKING MARIJUANA, LISTENING TO JUDAS PRIEST AND CONTEMPLATING SUICIDE.. OH AND PROBABLY WORK ON A FULL LENGTH ALBUM OR SOMETHING. (AND HOPEFULLY FIND A CURE FOR THE SYPHILIS OUR DRUMMER NECROHAMMER GOT FROM BEING A FUCKING SLEAZEBAG) F.O.A.D. AND STAY FUKKED!!!
