The Big Teutonic 4 Comment On Beastival

The day the thrash metal world had been waiting for came this past Thursday at the Beastival Open Air in Geiselwind, Germany when The Big Teutonic 4 - Kreator Sodom, Destruction, and Tankdard - performed in front of thousands of metalheads.

Now, all four bands share their memories and thoughts of this memorable night. A photo taken after the shows by artist Stefan 'Heile' Heilemann of Heilemania can also be found below.

Kreator's Mille Petrozza comments: "My personal highlight were the fans! We had real bad luck with the weather and during our gig there was not just heavy rain but also a real storm so that it would rain on stage all the time. Our fans once more proved to be the toughest and best in the world and partied with us till the end. Touching and impressive at the same time. Beastival was a KILLER festival overall!"

Sodom's Tom Angelripper states: "Beastival was a special event for Sodom. The Big Teutonic 4 sharing the same stage... this event will go down in history. Aside of that everything else was just classy as well. I've barely experienced a festival as well-organized as this. And a special thank you also goes out to all the metalheads that stuck with us despite the heavy rain and made this festival a memorable and great experience for all of us! We're hoping on a repetition!" More...

One track of this mind blowing performance in front of thousands of enthusiastic fans, is now available on 7“ vinyl – experience the brutal live force of 'From Flood Into Fire' and get a brand new track from Dutch thrash metal maniacs Legion of the Damned on the B side of this prestigious release, on top!
