As of this month we are concentrating on writing and rehearsing new material for our first full-length. We have not decided on a releasedate yet, as we tend to write until we are 200 procent satisfied with the outcome. We will keep you posted on updates here and on our Facebook page!

Review update

postdate 11 July 2012 (updated @ 6 December 2012)
These last couple of weeks we have been busy promoting 'The Human Error', so check out the reviews we got so far. More will be added as they drop in!

BE Ashladan 75/100
"Er wordt veel gespeeld met tempowisselingen en dat zorgt voor veel variatie, zowel in full thrash mode als in de tragere delen."

GB Ave Noctum 7/10
"The style of thrash is Bay Area predominantly, with quality lead work and a bit of harmony and with the vocals being powerfully clear and possessing a good mid range tone this Dutch outfit has got it balanced just right."

NL Brutalism 3/5
"Like a roller coaster, this EP is quite enjoyable for those who like Thrash in general."

MX Daemonum Zine 8/10
"Las liricas tratan los temas de la guerra, la destrucción del planeta y la exterminación de la raza humana, tópicos bonitos y filosóficos que bien nos podrían enseñar una lección de lo que estamos haciendo con el lugar que se nos prestó para vivir."

US Global Thrash Assault
"Simply put Destitution are perhaps the best band you never heard of, so do yourself a favor and change that by heading over to the band's official website and downloading The Human Error FOR FREE!"

DE Heavyhardes
"Ein kurzes, aber sehr angenehmes Vergnügen hat Destitution da geschaffen, davon möchte ich mehr haben, am liebsten in Form einer Langrille mit einem echten Label im Rücken. Verdient hätten die Käsköpp sich das auf jeden Fall."

NL Lords Of Metal 79/100
"This is an inventive bunch that manages to keep you pinpointing on their music in stead of staring out of the window and wondering which record to spin next."

NL Mario's Metal Mania 80/100
"Destitution exists of very good musicians, who master their instruments very well."

NL Metal Exposure
"Destitution delivers exactly what they promise: quality old school thrash metal. So will this make you enjoy your yellow comrade even more? Yes. After all, listening to a good metal band (especially live) with a drink is something we all love to do."

DK Metal Revolution 70/100
"Destitution delivers exactly what they promise: quality old school thrash metal that will make your beer taste even better!"

NL Metalrage 76/100
"This is a band with huge potential in the Dutch thrash metal scene."

DE NecroWeb.de 9/10
"Jeder, der sich dem Thrash Metal der alten Schule zugehörig fühlt, kann ohne Gefahr ein Ohr riskieren. Wer Bands wie Sodom, Kreator und Destruction zu seinen Lieblingen zählt, wird auch mit Destitution einen Hörgenuss bekommen."

DK Power Of Metal.dk 90/100
"Right, this has to be one of the best retro thrash releases of this summer!"

DE Powermetal.de
"Auszusetzen gibt es an dieser EP nichts, die Ausrichtung der Burschen gelangt recht früh gut ins Gehör, die Füße wippen, die Köpfe nicken, DESTITUTION beweisen auf "The Human Error" ein gutes Gespür für tolle, melodische Midtempo-Thrash-Songs, sodass es langsam Zeit für ein vollständiges Studioalbum wäre, nicht wahr?"

GB The Metal Crypt 3/5
"Destitution's sound is a suitably European style of thrash, particularly in their sense of melody which is always a boon."

NL Wings Of Death
"De nummers barsten van de ideeën en zijn dan ook in ieder geval heerlijk afwisselend."

NL Zware Metalen
"Het is noemenswaardig dat de band met zoveel verschillende bands is te vergelijken dat er eigenlijk niet één direct in me opkomt."
