Mental Destruction

Industrial
Jonkoping, Sweden

From Discogs: “Mental Destruction is the industrial project of the Durling brothers, originally aided by third member Jonas Blåberg, and is one of the more significant early industrial artists in Scandinavia. They refer to their music as “orthodox industrial”, as the inspiration of the lyrics is their devotion to Christ.

Their most recent full-length release dates back to 1996, but Mental Destruction are still active and also involved in the side-project Azure Skies.”
