Detraktor - Grinder 17/9/19

What happens if a Chilean, a Brazilian and a Bulgarian, decide to come to Hamburg to start a Thrash Metal band? Well, Detraktor got off to a lightning start, releasing their first EP 'Sunday Thrash' in 2015, then represented Germany at the worldwide Wacken Metal Battle, before recording their second EP 'Size Matters', and then finally winning the Metal Hammer Award for “Newcomer of the Year 2018”. Susequently, the band consisting of Henrique Queiroz (drums/vocals), Rafael Dobbs (guitar) and Boris Pavlov (guitar), recruited Chilean bassist Juan Orellana, in order to release their full length debut album 'Grinder', via Violent Creek Records, this Friday 20th September, that coincides with their release-show at Reeperbahn Festival´s Metal Dayz.
