Saksalainen thrash metal -bändi Destruction julkaisi 10.11. ”Thrash Anthems II” -nimisen kokoelma-albumin Nuclear Blastin kautta. Albumin ”United By Hatred” -kappaleesta on nyt julkaistu musiikkivideo, jolla esitetään yli 30 vuoden verran bändin historiaa. Bändin vokalisti-basisti Schmier kommentoi julkaisua seuraavasti:
”As it is a part of our past to relaunch classic songs from our history with a fresh face and we had many demands on a ’Thrash Anthems’ continuation, we decided to do a second part of this re-animation of classic ’80s Destruction material.
”For us, it was important to choose the tracks with the fans and first when Nuclear Blast did not wanna do the album, we decided to do a pledge campaign to raise the fonds for the production together with the diehards.
”To make a long story short, we know not everybody will like these new versions of those thrash evergreens (just listen to the originals then) but it was an important task for us to keep them alive for a whole new generation of metalheads that love those fresh and brutal new recordings.
”We are very happy now that our label is finally releasing this collection of thrash classics. The vibe on this record is so vicious, non-commercial and has this ’80s feeling with a even more aggressive edge, and that is was made our thrash so special, in the good old days and now!”
