An era is coming to an end!
From the very beginning of Lesson In Violence our man on the drums has always been a true thrash-disciple and still is. Scraper played a big role in the last years of Lesson In Violence and we were very glad and proud that we thrashed together!
Scraper is retiring from Lesson In Violence and we wish him all the best!

Thank you metalheads,
it was amazing how many of you sent us some pics to create our new video! We really appreciate your support! It's not a typical lyric-video how everyone else does it these days. We made a picture-video and we definitely don’t take things too serious! Many of the pics you sent were from earlier times so we tried to capture this spirit with the style of our video and kept it intentionally old-fashioned and different. So please enjoy our pic-vid spiced with lyrics!


We need you!
'Lesson In Violence' is planning to create a music video for the album 'The Thrashfall Of Mankind' and you shall be the the main actors!
So if you want to be part of it, just send us your most thrashy selfies. No matter if 'horns up in the bathtub' or with a beer in or below your camping-chair, headbanging or hugging the toilet. Feel free!
We need about 300 pics to be ready, so don't hold yourselfes back! Best send your pics in landscape format and please take note, that we can't use bandpics. Please make sure, that there is only yourself to be seen in the pictures.
So if you're in, send your pictures to casting@lessoninviolence.com.
To thank you, we will give you our next single before the second album will be released.
Your mail will be answered with further notice for privacy terms etc.
We added some examples to give you some inspiration!

Hello Folks,

we got some news for you. 'Lesson In Violence' has a new man on the guitar. His name is 'Michael Helbig' and he has always been a good friend and a supporter of our music. One of the main reason for recruiting him is that he is as much a thrash-enthusiast as the rest of 'Lesson In Violence'. He first joined the stage with us on the 'Metal Franconia Festival 2022' and did a really awesome job.

We also want to thank our former guitar-hero André for the good times we had together and all the efforts he brought into 'Lesson In Violence' and the first album 'The Thrashfall of Mankind'. “This is sure your baby too!”

We decided to go different ways because we faced some different focuses and visions of what the future will hold. Dear André, we wish you all the best for your projects and 'Lesson In Violence' is sure to meet up with you somewhere in time.

Prepare yourself for 11 tracks full of finest thrash metal and stay tuned for more updates!

Thrash Metal Mankind!


Listen you metalheads out there!

During this fucking pandemic we were literally imprisoned but we used the time to set up the recording of our first album. So we tried to make the best out of it and now we are done with most of the recordings. Right now we are recording the vocals. When it's done there will be only backing vocals left. After that it will take time to mix a sound, that will blow everyones mind.
As you can see, the process is going on and is pretty much advanced. When we are done we will chose the songs for our album wisely, that you get the full package of our thrash enthusiasm!
We can´t wait to return to the stage, hopefully in 2021. Till then, don't bother yourselves too much because of all the shit that's going on. Just think to yourself „ALL YOU NEED IS THRASH“!


Bad news: All shows in 2020 were rescheduled to 2021 due to Covid19.
Just check our dates for the upcoming shows in 2021. Right now we work on our first album to be published next year!


Our show at the Metal Franconia Festival 2020 was cancelled in connection with the upcoming Corona Epidemic. The replacement date will be in 2021.


Thanks a lot for the great support on our first show in our hometown!
Click here for the pictures!


We're glad to announce our first hometown-show in Schweinfurt, where we can blast your faces off with our brandnew set of pure fuckin' thrash!
Goregonzola, Insulter and April in Flames will join the show! Be there!


We are very proud to present our new Thrash Metal Formation to you.
It is time to teach you a LESSON IN VIOLENCE !
