kreator

Kreator, arguably the most influential and successful European Thrash Metal bands ever, will reissue 'Coma Of Souls' and 'Renewal' on Friday 2nd March and 'Cause For Conflict' and 'Outcast' on Friday 9th March 9th.

All four releases will be released by Noise Records in several different formats and are available for pre-order right here.

North American tour dates have also been confirmed for mid February to mid March 2018 which you can see below. Kreator's last album, 'Gods Of Violence', charted top twenty in ten countries, including a number one slot in their home country of Germany.

COMA OF SOULS – 2CD Mediabook & Triple Gatefold 3LP (Transparent Red Vinyl)

Kreator's fifth album, 'Coma Of Souls' came towards the end of the Thrash Metal explosion of the 1980s and retained their classic thrash sound whilst combining more melodic elements of classic Metal bands like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. Critically acclaimed by both fans and press, 'Coma Of Souls' was a strong, firm step forward for the band, which proved they weren't content to sit and wallow in the Thrash back waters but were determined to move into a new decade with a bold, thrusting sound.

Tracklist:
When The Sun Burns Red
Coma Of Souls
People Of The Lie
World Beyond
Terror Zone
Agents Of Brutality
Material World Paranoia
Twisted Urges
Hidden Dictator
Mental Slavery

RENEWAL – 1CD Mediabook & Gatefold 2LP (Transparent Green Vinyl)

Kreator's sixth album, 'Renewal', was originally released in October 1992, and took Kreator fans a little by surprise. While the band had established a reputation as a formidable Thrash Metal act, one of the best in Europe, this time they had really pushed away from their comfort zone. Bringing in both industrial and hardcore injections helped to make this one of the most fascinating and intriguing extreme albums of the era. At a time when the entire cutting edge scene was shifting, thanks to the emergence of grunge, Kreator proved they were still ahead of most of their peers.

Tracklist:
Winter Martyrium
Renewal
Reflection
Brainseed
Karmic Wheel
Realitäskontrolle
Zero To None
Europe After The Rain
Depression Unrest
Bonus Tracks
Winter Martyrium (Rare Version)
Trauma
Europe After The Rain (Remix)

CAUSE FOR CONFLICT – 1CD Mediabook & Gatefold 2LP (Blue vinyl)

Kreator's seventh album, 'Cause For Conflict', was originally released in July 1995 and musically the band took a different path to the one that hard marked out 'Renewal'. While certainly not abandoning the experimental nuances which had been so crucial to the previous album, there was something of a return to familiar territory this time around. Both the songs 'Lost' and 'Isolation' came out as singles and the passage of time has given 'Cause For Conflict' a sense of belonging, because there's little doubt it remains one of the bands most undervalued records.

Tracklist:
Prevail
Catholic Despot
Progressive Proletarians
Crisis Of Disorder
Hate Inside Your Head
Bomb Threat
Men Without God
Lost
Dogmatic
Sculpture Of Regret
Celestial Deliverance
Isolation
Bonus Tracks
Suicide In Swamps
Limits Of Liberty
State Oppression

OUTCAST – 2CD Mediabook & Gatefold 2LP (Transparent Orange Vinyl)

With hindsight, and a sense of history, 'Outcast' is certainly one of Kreator's most inventive and important albums. The German gargantuan-watt gladiators' eighth studio release was different to anything they'd done in the past during a time when Metal was in turmoil due to the grunge and Nu Metal explosions. The title, 'Outcast', was appropriate for how the band felt in the late 1990s and when 'Outcast' was released in July 1997 it wasn't a huge selling album but nonetheless, it proved they were still an exciting, individual and focused band.

Tracklist:
Leave This World Behind
Phobia
Forever
Black Sunrise
Nonconformist
Enemy Unseen
Outast
Stronger Than Before
Ruin Of Life
Whatever It May Take
Alive Again
Against The Rest
A Better Tomorrow

Bonus Tracks (Live At Dynamo Open Air 1998)
Intro: Dr Wagner, Part 3
Terror Zone
Lost
Leave This World Behind
Phobia
Black Sunrise
Choir Of The Damned
Pleasure To Kill
Whatever If May Take
Extreme Aggression
Renewal
