DESTRUCTION EVOLUTION is unsigned & independent again after leaving GI Jams Records in January 2014.

DESTRUCTION EVOLUTION was #1 on San Antonio's metal charts for almost 2 years until label constraints limited their RN content. Their southern metal sound - heavy, but melodic, with a groove, & bluesy guitar licks is influenced by Down, COC, Alice In Chains, BLS, Pantera, Sabbath, Metallica, Godsmack, Soundgarden, & more.
Destruction Evolution has a unique yet accessible sound that wins over any rock or metal crowd & has allowed them to open, successfully, for a diverse collection of rock & metal bands including Saxon, Dokken (twice), Texas Hippie Coalition (twice), Kamelot, Black Stone Cherry, Saving Abel, & Hinder, in addition to Playing the South Texas Rock Fest with Queensryche, Saxon, & many other international acts. Destruction Evolution has also headlined some of the best live venues locally & throughout the state. They have also performed for River City Wrestling a subsidiary of World Wrestling Entertainment.

Formerly signed to GI Jams Records / EMI Music Publishing / Rhino Custom Products. The songs "Relentless" & "Greatest Of Things" are still administered by GI Jams (www.gijams.com).
