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...

Mike, Schmier, and Vaaver from German thrash act Destruction are currently in Gernhart Studios in Troisdorf with engineer Martin Buchwalter to record their new thrash hammer. The thirty year anniversary album will be mixed by Andy Classen. In addition, there have been guest visits from Mr. Tom Angelripper and Gerre from Tankard.
Mastermind Schmier commented: "For this anniversary album we did a really great job, our new drummer VAAVER opens up new possibilities of course. On this album there are no limits. So fast, brutal and yet groovy we haven't ever sounded, probably! Also the guest musicians are very special this time: with Gerre (TANKARD) and Tom Angelripper (SODOM) our old friends and companions are with us, the original 'Mad Butcher/Release from Agony' - line up is doing one song and with Ol Drake (EVILE) we got the hottest young thrash guitarist for a few solos on the album!
"Germany's best extreme metal producer Andy Classen will take care for the brutal and raw production! The album will destroy even more than DOR: fast riffs, double bass attacks and brutal groovy songs, I think this time we found the 100% right mix!
"Also the 'Mad Butcher' returns to the cover. Cool artworks are very important for us; for the new thrash thunderstorm our artist Gyula created a real hammer again! The artwork makes clear immediately where to go - FULL FORCE AHEAD - as it has to be."
