A video clip of SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser performing the AC/DC classic "Thunderstruck" with BETZEFER on March 20, 2007 in Vienna, Austria during the two bands' joint European tour has been posted online at YouTube. BETZEFER last fall posted its video for the song "Early Grave" at this location (Quicktime required). The clip was shot in September with director Noah Shulman. "Early Grave" comes off the group's debut album, "Down Low", which was released in 2005 via Roadrunner Records. The group's energetic brand of metal is being described as a mixture of SEPULTURA and PANTERA and is said to be "packed with aggression."
