Destructor  


Destructor played raw, primitive thrash, in the mold of Metallica or Exodus, on their 1985 debut album, Maximum Destruction. Well known in the Ohio area for their over-the-top leather and chains look, they seemed on the rise, but the tragic death of bassist Dave Holocaust in 1988 brought about the quick demise of the band. A decade later, the surviving three members of the band decided to give it a go once again, and they've recorded sporadically over the years ever since.
