DESTRUCTION - single & music video released! - 2019-07-19

2019-07-19 - German thrash titans DESTRUCTION are set to unleash their 17th studio album, »Born to Perish«, on August 9th, 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, the band releases the second single entitled, "Betrayal". The official video clip can be seen here: https://youtu.be/jc5uyQYLaVc


Video directed by Achilleas Gatsopoulos for Hypnagogia Films | http://www.hypnagogia.com
Filmed in June 2019 in Berlin/Germany & Basel/Switzerland

Director Achilleas Gatsopoulos states:
"It was my honor to be entrusted by such a historic band to create a fresh visual aesthetic for their new album. It was important for me to strip things down and start with the basic raw and powerful visual elements that derive from their trademark logo:
Sharp angular shapes, high contrast and a monochromatic color palette of red, black and white.
Inspired by Dario Argento's horror masterpiece SUSPIRIA as well as by the existential portraits of Francis Bacon and mythology, we create a dark tableaus of archetypal forms of betrayal:
Two-faced/deceit, Back-stabbing, Infidelity, Garden of Eden, Wartime Snitch and we close with none other than the iconic Kiss of Judas.
It was an immense pleasure to work with the guys and I am really looking forward to next time.
'Til then, enjoy the audiovisual onslaught that is BETRAYAL."


Frontman Schmier adds:
“This is maybe my fave song from the new album cause of it´s classic thrash feel and the very catchy chorus. Randy is all guns blazing here and Mike & Damir have an awesome solo battle!
We all have our experience with BETRAYAL and wanted an emotional, atmospheric and different video!”
