  KREATOR ANNOUNCE A STRING OF UK DATES AS PART OF FULL UK TOUR FOR 2014
15 April 2014






German Thrash Metal giants Kreator have just announced a huge EU tour, including a lengthy visit to the UK this December.

When Kreator released 'Endless Pain' in 1985, they single-handedly established Germany as a Thrash nation and continued to sustain and influence the subgenre via their own 'Violent Revolution'.

In 2012, Kreator released their latest studio album - the killer 'Phantom Antichrist' which brought the band superb chart entries and sold-out venues all over the planet. This triumphant march was recently immortalized in the highly acclaimed live DVD/Blu-Ray 'Dying Alive'.

Check out some of the insane footage from 'Dying Alive' here:



Frontman and icon Mille Petrozza comments: "A lot of our European fans voiced their discontent over the fact that the band hardly does European club tours - apart from our festival shows. In 2013 we were mainly busy playing for our fans overseas. We want to change this now.

"In time for the reissues of 'Endless Pain', 'Pleasure To Kill' and 'Extreme Aggression' in all kinds of formats - finally on vinyl again too - we'll end the Phantom Antichrist tour cycle in Europe with a massive string of shows. This will be your last chance to see Kreator live in clubs for quite a while, because we'll be busy working on a new album in 2015 and only play carefully selected shows.

"Right now we're working on a new multimedia stage show and we'll also have a bunch of surprises in the setlist. Our friends of Arch Enemy are part of the trek to present their new album 'War Eternal', and so will Vader and our old companions Sodom. This tour will be KILLER!!"

Arch Enemy's founder, guitarist/chief-songwriter Michael Amott comments: "Yes, what a great tour! We've wanted to tour with Kreator for the last ten years and now it's finally happening! Kreator was one of the bands that inspired me to play faster and harder when I grew up and I'm happy to call Mille Petrozza a friend for quite a few years now.

"This tour is a real Metal onslaught, the kind of show you don't want to miss. We're excited as hell to be a part of it and looking forward to showing the fans the damage that the re-energized Arch Enemy is capable of in 2014!"

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
