Despite it only being April, there have been some absolutely staggeringly good releases so far. I thought that it might be pertinent to show just what kind of calibre of releases we have been treated to in the first four months of the year and its an absolute white wash across the board of talent.
For those who might not know, I have launched my own YouTube page discussing all sorts of things in the Metal world over on TheMetalTris. Debuting five brand new videos one of which we caught from having a chat with Kreator’s very own Sami Yli-Sirniö!
With terror being rife throughout the world, bands are increasing their reaction to the worlds current events. Ranging from all sorts of formats, one well rehearsed in the ways of battle are the German leaders st the vanguard of Thrash Kreator. Having returned after their five year material absence, the band have reasserted themselves firmly at the top of the second wave of Thrash Metal table. However it would seem that not only Kreator are born anew, as Brazilian counterparts Sepultura also unveiled their latest semi political statement Machine Messiah. Teaming up along with some help from both Soilwork and Aborted, the four band would match over Europe in a defiant conquering of venues far and wide. This time their march was headed toward Kentish Town’s Forum.
MTV, before becoming a home for some of the most mind numbing television that has been created, im looking at you My Super Sweet Sixteen, was once a home for the music video. Before the internet entered its prime, the art of video was revered. Now with the shortcuts of technology you or I could create a video in minutes. Costing thousands, taking up vast amounts of time and most importantly requiring actual talent, music videos were not a small undertaking. The free availability and instant gratification need society has been conditioned into leads necessitates is to have constant stimulation. Instead of sitting for hours in front of the TV waiting for that one song that you might hear, now we can just search it!
Represented in endless forms, deities have been the most revered of all entities to worship. Interpreted in numerous different cultures the idea comes in a variety of formats. Pledging your allegiance to a person or ideology, many have false allegiances. Regardless of agenda it seems that violence is almost always in tow. None more loyal than the fans of Metal, the legions of Thrashers of all ages once again make the musical pilgrimage with Kreator with their first release in four years, Gods Of Violence.
Well that was a mouthful!
We return once again to Mille Petrozza for another update on what it was like to record the latest Kreator record.
Calling all of the Hordes!
Whilst waiting for their third instalment in the video triptych we can get an even deeper look into the making of Gods Of Violence with a second trailer!
The band share their second song from Gods of Violence and its good. Very good.
Another day, another trailer!
And it’s got some killer bands.
