The Arts Of Destruction was released on February 28th and can be purchased at metalblade.com/desaster.
DESASTER guitarist Infernal comments: “After 23 years of total DESASTER, finally we have our first official video clip! We wanted something in the vein of some 80s video clip stuff, for example VOIVOD’s “Ravenous Medicine” and the director fulfilled our wishes! It’s not the usual “50 pictures in a second” MTV-style, but pure art of destruction with great atmosphere! Enjoy!”
“They wanted it old school – they GOT it old school!” is what director Oliver “Bomber” Barth of Visions In Fear Productions comments.
The Arts Of Destruction is the follow-up to 2007’s Satan’s Soldiers Syndicate; support for each record has included club and festival shows all over the planet.
“it’s all about Satan, leather, spikes and crushing everything in their path with pure metallic power. Absolute thrash chaos, but The Arts of Destruction is certainly no ‘disaster'” Kerrang Magazine
“Think Sodom and Destruction circa 1984, throw in a liberal splash of Kreator’s ‘Pleasure to Kill’, and season with a hint of Watain.” Metal Hammer
“from the opening salvo of hyper black violence, the more considered Teutonic thrash overtones that make their presence felt as the album progresses, to the flourishes of Slayer-isms that creep into the mix, the air of familiarity is coupled with a unique edge every step of the way” Terrorizer Magazine
