Voice Of Destruction  


Voice Of Destruction date back to 1986, and spent their formative years as part of a growing, though quite underground, South African hardcore scene. Several demos were recorded between 1988 and 1993, and in 1995 they finally released their sole album, Bloedrivier, by which time they had acquired a healthy 80's thrash influence, a la Testament or Exodus, though with gruffer, lower-pitched vocals. Their country of origin no doubt worked against them as far as making international waves, yet Bloedrivier was a satisfying thrash album that deserved a wider audience -- as it stands, they remain one of the most influential South African bands ever. They split up in 1998, with vocalist Francois Blom later seen in the Afrikaans rock band Kobus.
