"Hate Is My Fuel", the new video from German thrash metal veterans DESTRUCTION, can be viewed below. The clip was produced by Berlin, Germany's Roax Films and was filmed on December 31, 2010 at the Headbangersball Silvester Festival in Burgdorf, Switzerland.
"Hate Is My Fuel" comes off DESTRUCTION's new album, "Day Of Reckoning", which is available for streaming in its entirety on the band's Facebook page. (Note: The stream will only be available until February 21.)
"Day Of Reckoning" was released in Europe on February 18 via Nuclear Blast Records. The first limited edition of the album will not feature the band's logo on the booklet while the vinyl version and second pressing of the CD will show a red DESTRUCTION logo on it.
"Day Of Reckoning" is the first album to feature DESTRUCTION's new drummer Vaaver (INDUKTI, ex-UNSUN). The band stated, "Some of you may have seen him already with the band on [last] year's summer festivals. He is a studied musician (McGill University of Montreal) and is a Polish-Canadian citizen!"
Commented DESTRUCTION bassist/vocalist Marcel "Schmier" Schirmer: "The new guy behind the drumkit, the hard-hitting but well-versed, six-foot-six-inch-tall animal Vaaver took his first album with us as a challenge: no other DESTRUCTION album has the fastness, the tightness and crazy doublebass and drum fills as the 'Day Of Reckoning'! That's for fuckin' sure!"
He added: "The DESTRUCTION fans can look forward to an explosive drum massacre on the upcoming record, 'Day Of Reckoning'. Vaaver delightens our sound with a unbelievable tightness, technique and speed! A true rejuvenation for the band! And most important... he fits really good on the human level — a fortunate choice! It feels great to be a real band again!"
