DESTRUCTION, SODOM, KREATOR History Focus Of 'German Thrash' Lecture

Burning Ambulance editor Philip Freeman will discuss the legendary history of DESTRUCTION, SODOM and KREATOR during a lecture called "German Thrash - Extreme Metal For A Divided Nation" this Sunday, February 12 at 7 p.m. at Centrum in Berlin, Germany (Centrum is an arts space in the district of Flughafenkiez in Neuk├Âlln, Berlin). Freeman will talk about how the three most important bands of the early 1980s thrash metal scene in Germany performed songs with themes of violence, nuclear war, and other typical metal concerns, with KREATOR probably the most politically engaged of the three. The lecture will refer to songs from early albums like DESTRUCTION's "Infernal Overkill" and "Eternal Devastation", SODOM's "Obsessed By Cruelty" and "Persecution Mania", and KREATOR's "Endless Pain" and "Pleasure To Kill".

KREATOR was the first metal band to perform in East Germany following the Berlin Wall coming down.
