DESTRUCTION - Thrash Anthems II

Udo Dirkschneider is a name that doesn’t need an introduction, after fronting Accept in the 80’s and making a name for himself on his own band U.D.O Mr.Dirkschneider, returns in 2015 with a new U.D.O album titled, Decadent, their 15th studio album. That along is a long run for a band that has been around since 1987. 

Decadent, itself is a social critic to the excess and the ruthless sentiments of the so call ‘celebrities’ & people in power toward those that are not on such lucky positions. The album isn’t a political statement (as U.D.O is not a political band), yet the album bring interesting questions about the excess of this privileged people.

Songs like Decadent, House Of Fake & Pain are the best examples of the critic that Udo directs on this record. The album also reflects a change of direction on the musical style of the band. As it keeps the traditional heavy metal trademark of U.D.O‘s music, it also brings a more melodic and in some cases progressive side of the band.

Recently The Age Of Metal had the chance to speak with Udo Dirkschneider. In the conversation we talked about the band’s new album, their touring plans, Udo‘s participation on the Metal Singers tour over South America early this year, and what is next for U.D.O.
