Dutch death/thrash metal veterans THANATOS will release their brand new studio album, Global Purification, on November 17th in Europe and November 18th in North America (digital only) via Century Media Records. With Stephan Gebédi's (guitar, vocals) and Paul Baayens' (guitars) duties with their other bands - HAIL OF BULLETS and ASPHYX - it has become a bit quiet around Netherland's longest running extreme metal band. But 2014 marks THANATOS' 30th anniversary and their return to full power. And what would be better than to celebrate this event with the release of THANATOS' fiercest, most merciless and mature album to date? Global Purificationcontains 10 tracks of exterminating death/thrash that bring back memories of the days when metal was about breaking rules-- instead of creating them.
