DESASTER launch official video for ‘Phantom Funeral’

July 2nd, 2012

German blackened thrash act, DESASTER, in collaboration with Rock Hard magazine Germany, has launched the first official DESASTER music video! Head over to to check out Phantom Funeral, taken off the band’s latest album The Arts Of Destruction!

The Arts Of Destruction was released on February 28th and can be purchased at

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

Jalometalli Festival – Oulu, Finland – August 15th & 16th 2008

October 17th, 2008


The 15th -16th of August 2008

Oulu Teatria Finland

Review and pictures by Arto Lehtinen, Niko Karppinen and Luxi Lahtinen


Finland is definitely one hell of a paradise for metalheads as there are five to six metal festivals arranged all around Finland during the summer time. One of those metal festivals which has started becoming more and more known is Jalometalli up in the north of Finland. The whole festival started as a small event, mostly consisting of local bands. Jalometalli has since grown, attracting plenty of killer and catchy names such as Onslaught, Testament, and Rotting Christ.  This year’s event was no exception with several first time visitors such as Overkill, Trouble and Mortal Sin. It is obvious most of these bands have been all time favs of the Jalometalli organization. The festival is not a big massive gathering of tens of thousands of people. Instead, the event is a small, true, intense metal event with visitors having travelled from far away. This is the very first time ever when Jalometalli festival is covered by And if you live somewhere in the northern part of Sweden, Norway or Russia, start seriously considering having a roadtrip to the next Jalometalli event as the line-up of 2009 will surely be full of pleasant surprises…
Enjoy the article and some video clips in it, too!
