Kreator vocalist and guitarist Mille Petrozza talks about the ongoing support from Kreator fans including the importance of music in life, along with the personal rewards that come with creating music.
The band’s new album ‘Gods Of Violence’ is out 27 January on Nuclear Blast and available in the following formats:
With this their fourteenth studio album of their impressive career, the thrashers from Essen, Germany have crafted a work of art of utmost vigour, drawing its unfailing power from the pounding heart of one of the greatest, most versatile metal bands of all time.
Petrozza had followed recent news stories news with growing concern, especially the November 2015 Paris attacks. This made him realise that there had to be a continuum of human malevolence, running like a thread through the ages, from ancient times up to the present day. These thoughts led Petrozza to interlocking current events with tales from Greek mythology, eventuating in the song Gods Of Violence that was consequently chosen as the album‘s name giver.
“Currently, religion has regained a level of importance that I would have never considered possible 20 years ago an extremely dangerous polarization is taking place, giving rise to growing hate among us all. That‘s what I wanted to write about.”
