EPISODE 5.02: Schmier of Destruction on digital and other trends in the music business

Posted on Sep 26, 2016 in Season 5

“It’s not right, and for the fans it’s actually cheating. If you want to listen to the album, then do it at home, but live, if it’s just backing tracks, it’s nothing else than playback.” – Schmier, Destruction

It was a great pleasure to meet Schmier of the iconic Destruction, who pioneered German thrash metal in the 1980s, and talk about positive and negative trends, cheating on stage and their current Europe Under Attack 2016 tour with Flotsam and Jetsam, Nervosa and Enforcer. If you like a good metal show, don’t miss this show!
