2014 marks the 30th anniversary of THANATOS and what would be better than celebrating this event with the release of the strongest album in the band’s career? “Global Purification” contains 10 tracks of exterminating death/thrash metal with razor-sharp riffs, hateful vocals, straight forward lyrics and a clear yet brutal production by Dan Swanö.

“Global Purification” will be released on November 17th.
