As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, the legendary German thrashers Destruction will release their 17th studio album, “Born To Perish”, on August 9th via Nuclear Blast. They’ve now launched the second single, entitled “Betrayal”, off the upcoming album. Watch the official video clip here:

 

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!”
