STREAM: Blackened‘s Truth Behind Destruction


We’re proud to premiere Truth Behind Destruction, the debut LP from Brazillian thrashers Blackened. You need to put this record in your eardrums.

FOLKS, things are tough all over. Politicians are corrupt as shit, we’re hovering on another Cold War with Russia, and our parents are collectively harshing our vibes. What we need most right this very minute is some stone cold throwback thrash metal.

Every instrument on Truth Behind Destruction is pitch-perfect vintage thrash. Just listen to the punch on the drums on “The Front Remains”! Marvel at the crunchy 80s guitar tone on “Into Lunacy”! Bang your head into a pile of gelatinous goo to “Stay Wasted”!

Blackened bring the metal with a fury. You’re gonna love this album.

Truth Behind Destruction drops tomorrow. Pick it up from Witches Brew, then go like Blackened on Facebook and type your best Portuguese at them.

    This is what I’m talking about!

  • Well on the bright side Putin won’t want to destroy us anymore i guess. No more cold war i suppose.

    • Guacamole Jim

      Take your political discussion back to the political article, you political motherfucker

      • W.

        Why does this avocado have a horn? Why is he holding a recorder?

        None of this adds up.

      • I actually detest politics and im glad i wont be hearing people spewing negative propaganda every damn day anymore. Also wtf is this the most indecisive avocado ever.

        • Dumpster Lung ᴰᵃᵐᵃᵍᵉ_ᴵⁿᶜ⁸⁹

          I don’t think it’s necessarily going to stop, but at least it won’t be arguing over who to vote for.

      • I WUV U!

      • Dumpster Lung ᴰᵃᵐᵃᵍᵉ_ᴵⁿᶜ⁸⁹

        Oh yeah, this is from that time the California Avocado Commission tried recreating the marketing success of the California Raisins while attempting to reach new demographics with their mascot’s edgier attitude.

        “Hass-ta la vista, baby!”

    • Óðinn

      At face value, it might look that way. But this emboldens Putin who wants to expand Russian influence into Europe. If Europe (and NATO) is not at peace, it’s doubtful that the United States would not feel the effects and have to get involved.

  • Eliza

    Haven’t listened to any old school thrash like this in a while, this is refreshing.

  • Zoheb Mahmud

    Thanks a bunch guys 🙂

  • God

    Damn, really like what I’ve heard so far. Gonna need to pick this up

    • Was it you that really liked Asylum? Those dudes dropped a new song.

      • God

        It was! You turned me on to them. I still have their shirt and the note they wrote me thanking me for my support. I’ll for sure be getting their next release.

      • Dumpster Lung ᴰᵃᵐᵃᵍᵉ_ᴵⁿᶜ⁸⁹

        First I’ve heard of them, but I’m definitely digging these guys too. Nice recommendation!

        • I’ve been told I’m pretty good at recommending things.

  • Waynecro

    I’ve been sober for nearly ten years now, but “Stay Wasted” totally reminds me of thrashing like a lunatic with my drunken idiot friends when I was a drunken idiot teen.

  • AeonsOvChaos

    When Death Metal is old and still able to crush your skull:

  • I really like how “crisp” the mix is!



    It sounds savage, like South American thrash should sound!!! Great finding, XXJOEXX.


  • GOOD South American metal makes me happy. Kudos to Blackened for channeling the correct vibes of Brazillian thrash metal tradition.
