KREATOR's New Album: First Impressions

German thrash legends KREATOR will release a new studio album, likely to be titled "Hordes Of Chaos", via SPV Records in January. Metal Hammer's Dave Ling was among the first journalists to hear its nine songs — ten if you include a two-parter that appears towards the album's end — when guitarist/frontman/songwriter Mille Petrozza flew into London to approve the final mix-down, which was handled by Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, NAPALM DEATH, SLIPKNOT, CARCASS). Basic production had taken place during the summer at Titonus studios in Berlin with producer Moses Schneider.

A short video teaser for KREATOR's forthcoming studio album can be viewed below.

Producer Moses Schneider previously stated about the CD, "KREATOR is the loudest and fastest band I've ever recorded. We're reaching new levels of intensity with this album. We've managed to capture the true spirit of the band by recording all the basic music live in one room. Except for the vocals, the guitar solos and some melodies there will be no overdubs on this album. It's the most organic KREATOR record ever so far. But don't worry: the songs will be thrash metal brutality in its purest form!"

KREATOR recently issued the "At The Pulse Of Kapitulation - Live In East Berlin 1990" DVD featuring the previously released "Live in East Berlin" and "Hallucinative Comas", both re-edited and previously only available on VHS video cassette.
