Brazilian death metallers KRISIUN joined German thrashers DESTRUCTION on stage on Sunday, September 22 at the Rock In Rio festival in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil to perform a cover version of the VENOM classic “Black Metal”. Video footage of the performance can be seen below.

Said DESTRUCTION vocalist/bassist Marcel “Schmier” Schirmer: “I would like to dedicate this performance to my old-time buddy Michael Trengert [Nuclear Blast, Metal Blade] that passed away in that night when we were on stage in Rio.

Michael was one of the founders of the German metal scene, a great friend and maybe the most honest guy in this monkey business. He will be missed like no one else!

“RIP, brother — your legacy will never die!”

DESTRUCTION‘s 30th-anniversary album, “Spiritual Genocide”, was released on November 23, 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2011’s “Day Of Reckoning” was recorded at Gernhart Studios in Troisdorf, Germany with engineer Martin Buchwalter and was mixed by Andy Classen. The album features guest appearances by Thomas “Angelripper” Such (SODOM), Andreas “Gerre” Geremia (TANKARD) and Ol Drake (EVILE). In addition, the “Mad Butcher”/“Release From Agony” lineup of DESTRUCTION — featuring guitarist Harry Wilkens and drummer Oliver Kaiser — reunited for one song.

Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of Great White’s live album “30 Years – Live From the Sunset Strip” on February 22nd in Europe and February 26th in North America. The label issued the following statement:

“To mark its 30th Anniversary live on March 22nd, 2012, Greaet White celebrated the only logical way – on stage. In a nod to its early days, Great White returned to the infamous Sunset Strip, where a storied past of music’s biggest fans are fused into the walls of the Key Club. Great White delivered its entire repertoire to a packed house, pining for the band’s raw energy and cheering its illustrious history track after track.

“The Southern California blues hard rock band debuted with a Don Dokken / Michael Wagener produced EP in 1983 and later on were signed by EMI for 1984’s self-titled debut album. Since then Great White has achieved worldwide success, encompassing sales of over six million records. They received a Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance for the song ‘Once Bitten, Twice Shy’ and earned a double platinum certification for the album ‘…Twice Shy.’

“It’s the soulful, blues-based signature sound that turned songs like ‘Face The Day,’ ‘Rock Me,’ and ‘Save Your Love’ into international hits. The late 80′s were boom years for the band, marked by non-stop touring with some of the biggest bands of the era including stints in Europe and Japan. Great White recorded two more albums for Capitol — ‘Hooked,’ which was certified gold and ‘Psycho City.’

“With a line up featuring Co-Founder Mark Kendall, Audie Desbrow, Michael Lardie Scott Snyder and new singer Terry Ilous (former XYZ), a natural frontman blessed with bluesy-heritage rock tone, Ilous fits the band like a glove. Great White’s biting guitar riffs, contagious rhythm section and newfound energy is ready to honor its past and create the next chapter. 30th Anniversary Live is just one night – but the music is timeless.”

Destruction: Teutonic Terrors

The new video from German thrash legends Destruction is live, and it’s premiering on Metal Hammer, baby!

Carnivore is taken from the band’s upcoming, 30th anniversary album Spiritual Genocide, released November 26 via Nuclear Blast. Ooooh yes.

The video was produced at Polish Mania Studio and sees the return of classic Destruction character, the Mad Butcher. Which is nice.
