Kreator - Reveal New Album Title And Release Date

The rolling thunder is growing louder and great events are foreshadowed again:

Germany's most eminent thrash metal act, Kreator, are set to release their latest studio album on 16 January 2009 (Europe: 19 January, US: end of January). "Hordes Of Chaos" is a powerhouse featuring rigorous thrash attacks and Kreator's familiarly intelligent lyrics about self-determination and the dangers of contemporary war propaganda. Kreator are also scheduled to embark on another major European tour as early as January 2009.

"Hordes Of Chaos" was recorded at Berlin's Tritonus studios under the direction of producer Moses Schneider. Schneider is renowned for his fresh and exceptionally dynamic working methods with bands and artists such as Beatsteaks and Tocotronic. "We consciously decided on Moses as our producer for the live recording of the basic tracks at the studio," band mastermind Mille Petrozza explains. "This was the first time since "Pleasure To Kill" that we worked in this way. The new album is a 100% realistic reflection of Kreator's live qualities. Instead of exploring every little detail to sterile perfection with the help of computer technology, this time around we wanted to deliver as dynamic a production as possible. There can be no doubt that we've achieved our target in "Hordes Of Chaos"."
The album was mixed in London by Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Bullet For My Valentine, Cradle Of Filth, etc.).

The new studio album will be available in three different versions. The jewel case edition includes the ten regular album songs, and the deluxe version features an additional bonus DVD with an atmospheric making-of in super-8 quality courtesy of a Berlin film maker. As a third option, the ultra deluxe version, comes with a t-shirt, a worthwhile photo book and an extended version of the bonus DVD, as well as the CD.

As early as January, Kreator musicians Mille Petrozza (guitar, vocals), drummer Jürgen 'Ventor' Reil, bassist Christian Giesler and guitarist Sami Yli-Sirniö will embark on their two-month European tour alongside Caliban and Eluveitie. So you'd better fasten your seatbelts when the "Hordes Of Chaos" steamroll through the country!

This is mega news!

Weird choice of support bands, but I most likely will be there again when they stop by in Belgium... at the front again of course. Plus, a great opportunity to see Eluveitie once more. Think their live performance will be totally different indoors than on a festival stage.

PS: Colin Richardson worked together with some good metal bands too, like Sepultura, Napalm Death, Carcass, Cannibal Corpse and Overkill, to name only a few.
Your favorite band sucks.

And Eluveitie as one of the support bands on their tour...I''m extremely pleased with this choice
