Destructor

Foto

Born out of the hard rock and heavy metal of the late 1970’s and early 80’s Pat Woloweicki, Dave Just, Paul Habat joined forces to create and play music that was not unlike other youth across the planet but was yet to have the title of THRASH METAL. Born of raw energy, loud guitars and fast drums DESTRUCTOR took form. Being mutual high school friends they found a common bond and now surnamed Pat Rabid, Dave Overkill and Paul Warhead began to pursue the life long dream of being in a band that would come to change the landscape of music previous to their musical heroes.

in the summer of 1985 and the record was released on Auburn records in December of 1985. Many shows ensued and having shared the stage with bands such as Slayer, Nasty Savage, Megadeth, Overkill, Voivod, Celtic frost, Anthrax and many more Destructor planted the flag of Cleveland thrash metal!!

In 1986 Maximum Destruction was licensed to the overseas label Roadrunner records and the sales flourished. In addition the band did a new recording of the song Pounding Evil for the compilation record produced named Speed kills 2 under the company one flag records. The future looked bright for Destructor and the writing of more songs ensued through 1985-1987 and brought record label attention from Island records. A deal was proposed to the band for a major label release and recording had begun for a second album in the summer of 1987 at Beachwood studios. The record was unfortunately never completed after the murder of bass player Dave Iannicca on New Years Eve of 1987-88 and the band was subsequently passed over by Island records. The loss of Dave Holocaust reverberates around the world and brings about many changes for Destructor and the entire Cleveland metal scene.

In 1992 the band took life once again with Pat Rabid and Dave Overkill recruiting the likes of Tim Green on bass and Eric Beers on drums. The band rehearses and plays a big show with the band Overkill but this line up was only to last a couple of short months and the almost 10 year run was seemingly lost.

Destructor finally hangs up the leathers.

In 1999, 16 years after the band Destructor formed, a German music magazine publication named “Snake pit” found Dave Overkill and asked for an interview. Keep in mind that real heavy metal was all but dead in the United States through the 90’s but was still alive and starting to thrive again in Europe. Frank Stover, who conducted the interview, gave new life to the name DESTRUCTOR and the band reunited following the publication. Destructor having enlisted Eric Reineke on bass began to rerecord what was to be the bands second record originally titled Decibel Casualties. The bands first self funded recording was produced at Suma recording studio. Having little luck soliciting record labels at the time the album was never released. The band still did small tours and plunged forward. After a couple of years Eric parted ways with the band making way for new bassist Jamie Walters. Buy this time the French record label Listenable Records had struck a deal to reissue the Maximum Destruction sessions alternative mix. Jamie Boulder came from the band Boulder. Through all of this time the record label Auburn records was retired as well and both parties seemed to find each other again at the end of the 90’s.

Having a new chance at giving music to the world the two parties joined forces once again and the record “Sonic bullet” which was recorded by Don Depew of the band Breaker and released in 2003.

Nick Giannakos would now partner with Dave Just to complete the guitar attack but now Matt Schindelar would find himself taking a leave of absence and Dave would bring in long time friends Ed Stevens on bass and Chris Dora on drums to record the Anvil song “Bedroom game” to be released on Skol records Anvil tribute record “Strong as steel”. Matt rejoining the band afterwards brought along the talents of Tim Fredrick on bass. Dave Overkill, Matt Flammable, Nick Annihilator and Tim Hammer now forge onward having signing a world wide record deal with Pure Steel Records out of Germany. Two releases will follow the deal. First the album “Back in bondage” and then “Decibel casualties”
