Guitar-Playthrough video for "Betrayal" released

Today, the band has released a guitar playthrough video for the second single "Betrayal".
The video can be seen here:

Original shredder Mike says:
„This is a classic thrasher with a lots of tempo changes and an evil middle part! The drums are a really interesting part of the song - Randy kills it. During the solo we have my unrelenting style and Damir’s crazy shredding, which is beyond good and evil! It fits perfectly together – we hope you enjoy the playthrough!”

New axeman Damir states:
"BETRAYAL is my personal highlight of the new record! I love the rhythmical changes and the variety but the song always stays true to the roots! Of course the solo duel is another climax of this new DESTUCTION anthem, I love it!"

We all have been betrayed at one point, life is an emotional rollercoaster and this is the soundtrack! We love the work of Achilleas Gatsopoulos and we are very pleased that he handles the duties with us on visualizing this song! Thanks to Randy that brought him into the game - the filming was great fun & we learned a lot of new things!“
