Germany's Visions magazine has posted a world-exclusive studio report on the current recording sessions for KREATOR's new album. Check out the report (in German) as well as photos from the studio at this location.
KREATOR entered the Titonus studios in Berlin on July 20 to begin recording the highly anticipated follow-up to 2005's "Enemy of God".
Commented KREATOR mainman Mille Petrozza: "We've finished recording basic tracks for nine songs, one more to go. This album is a new experience for both band and producer [Moses Schneider]."
Added Schneider: "KREATOR is the loudest and fastest band I've ever recorded. We're reaching new levels of intensity with this album. As you can see on the picture [below], I'm in the line of fire and the recording is very physical. 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!"
The album, which will be mixed by Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, SLIPKNOT) in London, will be released in January 2009, followed by an extensive world tour.
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.
