All Hell Breaks Loose is the sixth studio album by German thrash metal band Destruction, released on April 25, 2000 by Nuclear Blast. It was the first official album released since Cracked Brain in 1990, and the first with Schmier returning to vocals and bass since Release from Agony in 1987. It also marks the return of the band to a three-piece lineup.
The album also includes a cover of Metallica song "Whiplash".
Although All Hell Breaks Loose is considered to be a return to form for Destruction, it still retains some of the groove metal influences from the band's 90s releases from their Neo-Destruction period.
All tracks written by Schirmer and Sifringer, except where noted.
Note"Whiplash" is a hidden bonus track on some copies of the record.
Writing, performance and production credits are adapted from the album liner notes.
