Overkill, Kreator Kill Worcester With Aggression

As if the ante of seeing Testament, Overkill and Flotsam & Jetsam needed to be raised, the thought of seeing Kreator, Overkill and Warbringer was much too tempting an offer. I was fortunate enough to see Overkill on that fateful day – February 16, 2013 – the last show that Blitz would sing on the tour due to contracting pneumonia – which forced him into the hospital in Buffalo the next day and forced the band off the tour. Looking back on that day, I thought despite the illness, Blitz sounded great – however, he did leave the stage nearly every time he stopped singing. Chuck Billy of Testament, who was also sick, sounded pretty awful, but he was a trooper and put on a great show regardless. Flash forward to November 1st and The Palladium in Worcester would be witness to what I can only describe as the “Tour of North American Aggression.” More...

Kreator Checks In From The Road

Returning to North America for the second run in support of 13th studio album "Phantom Antichrist," German thrash act Kreator kicked off its "Legends of Thrash" tour last night in Baltimore, MD.

With co-headliner Overkill and Warbringer in tow, the run will continue tonight in Philadelphia, PA and throughout most of November, wrapping up with back-to-back New York City shows on November 23rd and 24th.

Checking in before the first performance last night in, frontman/guitarist Mille Petrozza commented:

"This upcoming North American tour will be a total massacre! Who would have thought 20 years ago that it would be possible to see Kreator, Overkill and Warbringer live on stage on the same bill? Growing up with 'Feel the Fire' and 'Taking Over' up to the newer releases like 'Iron Bound,' we feel absolutely privileged and honored to share the stage with the boys from Overkill on this run. This is a dream come true for us and for the fans. See you all at the shows!" More...

Kreator Auctioning Art Prints For Charity

German thrash titans Kreator, Nuclear Blast, Janmedia, and animal rights organization PETA Germany have teamed up for charity. Together three huge prints of parts of the artwork (by artist Jan Meininghaus) of the band's most recent DVD/Blu Ray "Dying Alive" are being auctioned off via eBay.

All three prints are signed by all band members, and all proceeds will go directly in favor of PETA Germany. The three auctions can be found at this location.

Commented Kreator mainman and active vegan Mille Petrozza: "Our favorite artist Jan Meininghaus did an amazing job creating the cover art for 'Dying Alive' and the prints look just awesome. We are happy to support PETA and all the hard working people that help to make this world a better place - not only for humans, cats, dogs and other pets, but for ALL our animal friends on this planet."

Added PETA Germany representative Jobst Eggert: "Animals need our voice as they can't speak for themselves. We are happy that the animals have such a strong and charismatic voice like Mille's who stands up for their rights. Making people aware of wrongs in this world is something Kreator and PETA have in common and we are extremely grateful that the proceeds from these auctions will help us keeping up our work and make this world a better place for animals.“

Tuska Open Air Metal Festival 2013: Days 2 and 3

The weekend festivities of the second and third day of Tuska started a bit later for me, but still managed to start with a bang that resounded for the whole weekend! With a lineup a bit less intense then the first day, there was a lot of room to really observe performances and finally get that summer festival feeling. Both days featured very different genres, but as always with Tuska, there is truly something for everyone, even if that something is as simple as ice cold cider and a cool breeze on a hot day.

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...

"New split single with Legion of the Damned! Prior to the live DVD, Blu Ray, and album entitled 'Dying Alive' that will be released in August, this is what will happen:

"During their extensive world tour, Kreator also played a sold out show in Oberhausen, Germany where they recorded the entire show. 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!

"Check the single cover, which is a part of the final DVD artwork below. More infos coming soon, so stay tuned!"
