Evile guitarist causes destruction…

Old RakeEvile axe-man Ol Drake appears as a guest musician on the new album from Teutonic thrash trio Destruction.

Having filled in when guitarist Mike Sifringer broke a finger at Portugal’s Caos Emergente festival in 2009, Drake was asked to play some solos and harmonies on new album, ‘Day Of Reckoning,’ as well as appearing on a cover of Dio’s ‘Stand Up And Shout.’

“To fly over there, do some recording, backing vocals and hang out with Mike and Schmier again was an experience I’ll never forget,” comments Drake. “Being a big Destruction fan, I can’t put into words how unbelievable it is, and was, to be a part of the album. I can safely say this is one of the best albums they’ve done in a long time (no, not because I’m on it… well, a little haha).

Our old bassist, Mike, was a huge Destruction fan, so I really hope he’d be proud. I remember when I told him I’d be standing in on guitar at a show in Portugal; he simply called me a ‘bastard.’ I think he was more excited than I was!”

“Day Of Reckoning” was released in Europe on February 18 via Nuclear Blast Records.
