Decaying Releases "Operation Citadel" Video Clip
Decaying has posted a video clip online for the song "Operation Citadel," which comes off the band's newly released "Encirclement" album. You can watch the video after the jump, and the band also commented:
"The song tells about Battle Of Kursk (1943) - the last proper offensive that Germany was able to launch against the Soviet forces in World War II. The hopes on 'Operation Zitadelle' were high to regain the initiative back and turn the tide for the Axis' favor once again; but eventually it resulted in a failure for the Wehrmacht, and marked a major turning point in the course of the war.
"The battle is known as the largest tank engagement thus far: Wehrmacht's panzer battalions destroyed Russian tanks with a overwhelming ratio; only the sheer amount of Soviet armor, especially T-34s, arriving into the battlefield almost straight-from-the-factory, sometimes even totally unpainted - and the fact that the Russians managed to set up very good anti-tank defences in advance due to good intelligence - resulted in the Axis' downfall."
