Hey readers, so this is less of a “music video review” as opposed to a sharing of something pretty damned awesome. Check out the press about it and the full clip. I’ll come back with a notion or two at the close.
The Press Release:
On Tuesday, German thrash titans KREATOR delivered an exclusive live performance on the German late-night show “Circus HalliGalli” together with two very special singers on stage: For the song “Satan Is Real”, Papa Emeritus III of GHOST as well as DRANGSAL front man Max Gruber joined Mille Petrozza and his hellish team and delivered a performance to remember!
“It was an absolute honor and a lot of fun to have such amazing artists as Max Gruber and Papa as guests on ‘Satan is Real’. We will never forget this night of diabolic love!”, states KREATOR mastermind Mille. Watch the video of the broadcast below:
KREATOR’s recent album, Gods Of Violence, smashed charts worldwide after its release on January 27 and entered the German charts on #1. It won three soundchecks (Metal Hammer, Rock Hard and Legacy) and hit a total of 29(!) magazine covers in Europe!
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Simply put I loved this short clip as it really gives a good look at just how intense Kreator is on the live stage. Adding Papa III to the mix made it all the more enjoyable for me but wow could that audience appear any less interested or what? Folks viewing at home should realize that when you are in the studio audience you have to follow whatever rules the show production manager says and he probably said “you people stay put or get thrown out” or something to that effect. There was some pyrotechnics going on as well and they probably don’t want people near that at all. We actually just caught Kreator during the Decibel Music Tour and it was as an as expected throttling event. I felt my bones rattling around inside of me with the razor sharp riffs and thundering drums. I also have a bit of a neck strain from all the headbanging and from trying to keep an eye out for the crowd surfers above me. Good times. If you’ve not yet seen Kreator do their thing in concert you should get to it. The new release is also some molten Metal so plan on adding that to your collection ASAP. Until next we meet. Auf Wiedersein.
Are you on the square? Are you on the level? And now a message from the Clergy to the masses who wish to be a part of the upcoming services……

The Press Release:
IRON MAIDEN’s hugely successful The Book Of Souls World Tour will return to North America for an extensive series of arena and amphitheater shows in summer 2017. The mammoth tour opened in Florida last February playing fourteen sold-out shows in the U.S.A and Canada along with a further 58 concerts in 34 other countries around the globe. First night reviews from Ft Lauderdale called it “…a full-throttle, devil-may-care performance that thrilled a sold-out BB&T Center” (Sun Sentinel) with Revolver magazine reporting how the band’s legendary mascot Eddie dominated the Maya-themed stage: “From a walking zombie towering over band members during the set, to being featured on a host of back-drops and huge blow-up figures – the quintessential symbol was omnipresent for the entire show” including Eddie having his heart literally ripped out of his chest and hurled into the crowd by singer Bruce Dickinson!
