Anthony Morgan at Metal Forces recently caught up with KREATOR frontman Mille Petrozza to discuss the band’s new album, Phantom Antichrist.
“If you asked me to use one or two words to describe the album, I don’t know which words I would use,” Mille admits. “I would say it comes from the heart. Of course it’s focused; every album that we do is focused. I would say it isn’t one-dimensional. It has a lot to offer; there’s a lot of melodic parts, and there’s also a lot of speed parts and fast thrash metal parts. It’s typical Kreator stuff, but there’s also something more to it. We tried some new stuff, but without adding an orchestra or something. It’s all guitars, drums, and bass. The only part where we had extra musicians coming in was in a song called ‘Civilisation Collapse’ where we had percussionists playing with us, and that was really cool. That gave the song a different dimension. It went fine. I’d say that the album is like a rollercoaster; it’s not only fast, it’s not only heavy, it’s not only brutal… It’s metal (laughs).”
German thrash titans KREATOR have released the single “Phantom Antichrist” coming off the forthcoming album of the same title.
The single also includes the non-album cover version of the IRON MAIDEN classic “The Number Of The Beast”. The 7” vinyl version of the single is already completely sold out – so grab your digital copy at iTunes, Amazon and various other download shops.
The entire album, “Phantom Antichrist”, will be released June 1, 2012 on CD, vinyl and digital download.
Furthermore KREATOR have announced to have shot a video clip for the song – produced by Grupa13 (BEHEMOTH, ELUVEITIE, AMON AMARTH etc). It is set to be released May 3, 2012.
