Distillator signs with District 19

The Austrian booking agency District 19 is proud to announce their cooperation with the young thrash maniacs of DISTILLATOR from The Netherlands. District 19 will represent the band worldwide exclusively as booking agent and manager.

DISTILLATOR had the following to say: “We are really excited to let you know that we have signed with District 19 for exclusive management & bookings. Be prepared for more Dutch Thrash Metal Assaults throughout Europe and beyond!”

Distillator is a 3-piece thrash metal band from Enschede, The Netherlands. Influenced by bands as Slayer and Destruction, these gentlemen will take you back to the 80’s thrash scene. On stage, dressed in spandex and shrouded in bullet belts, this is a must see for all Thrash Metal fans!

The press had the following to say about the band’s debut album ‘Revolutionary Cells’, released through Empire Records earlier this year.

“One the greatest full-length thrash album that ever emerged from Dutch soil” – Lords Of Metal

“The Netherlands has been known for exporting renowned metal acts like Gorefest, Asphyx, Pestilence and Legion of the Damned. With the release of Revolutionary Cells, the Dutch trio Distillator proves a worthy addition to this list!” – Rock-Pix

“a newcomer to keep an eye on!” – Aardschok

“This album transcends beyond the old school-new school boundaries and has the ability to make all fans of the Thrash genre rejoice. Frankly cut the crap, I would just describe this February 10th releasing album as “35 minutes of hair lifting Thrash Metal”. Look out for this you Thrashers.” – Metal Temple
