German Thrash Metal Pioneers Kreator Release First-Ever Live Album & DVD

Live Kreation & Live Kreation - Revisioned Glory Due on July 22nd Through SPV

After nearly 20 years and over 1000 concert performances, German thrash metal pioneers Kreator are prepared to unleash their first ever live album and accompanying DVD to the masses via SPV Records on July 22nd! The band experienced a vast resurgence in North American interest last year on their highly successful ‘Violent Revolution' tour, and these upcoming collections are the band's way of giving something back to the fans for their diehard commitment to the Teutonic Thrash legacy.

The CD, Live Kreation, collects 24 tracks of Kreator's inimitable, blue-collared 'extreme aggression,' recorded around the world and produced by renowned knob-smith Andy Sneap (Machine Head, Arch Enemy, Fozzy, Skinlab, etc.). Says Kreator founder, vocalist/guitarist Mille Petrozza on the milestone, "Over the years, a lot of our fans kept asking us for a live record. We loved the idea and started working on it in the beginning of our 'World Revolution' tour. Modern technology allowed us to record 22 shows in total, so at the end of the day, we had tons of stuff to choose from. Capturing good performances from shows in Brazil, Korea, France, Germany and Greece, we've spent a long time picking the right atmosphere of each individual track, kept them all raw and direct, to make this first live album in the history of Kreator a special experience for us and our fans. Andy Sneap did a killer job mixing this 24-track monster, including songs from every album we've recorded."

The historic 2-CD, 100+ minute full-contact extravaganza includes the following tracks:

Disc 1:

The Patriarch
Violent Revolution
Reconquering The Throne
Extreme Aggression
People Of The Lie
All Of The Same Blood
Pleasure To Kill
Servant In Heaven - King In Hell
Black Sunrise
Terrible Certainty
Riot Of Violence

Disc 2:

Coma Of Souls
Second Awakening
Leave This World Behind
Under The Guillotine
Awakening The Gods
Golden Age
Flag Of Hate

The DVD companion, Live Kreation - Revisioned Glory, not only includes 17 of the aforementioned 24 tracks mixed in 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound, but also contains a complete 55-minute year-by-year video history of Kreator, including all of the band's video clips & new documentary-style interviews with Mille, additional live footage, behind-the-scenes footage and many other bonus features. Mille comments on this colossal endeavor, "Putting together the material for the DVD was hard work, a little tricky, but in the end a lot of fun! One thing was clear to me from the beginning: no compromise on ANYTHING to make this output the ultimate in quality!! I did not know many music DVDs before I started working on ours, so I checked other bands' releases. I was very disappointed by the fact that some artists just put out shitty hand-camera footage and sell it to their audiences as live videos. Luckily, our record company was aware of that problem, and so we hired two professional camera teams to film our shows in Korea and Brazil. Other than that, I personally started shooting all kinds of behind-the-scenes material on tour. To make it all complete, we put together a history documentary, going way back in time, including all official Kreator video clips shot so far, plus previously unreleased interview footage, TV appearances and other rare stuff. So now, after almost half a year in several cutting rooms, mixing studios, in my living room looking through old video tapes, I can promise you, you will definitely enjoy this f**ker!"

The Patriarch Toxic
Violent Revolution
Reconquering The Throne
