Thrash legends KREATOR are pleased to share that four of their classic ‘90’s era albums will be reissued via BMG on 23 February 2018.
Formed in Essen, Germany in 1984, KREATOR are arguably the most influential and successful European thrash metal band ever, racking up multi-million album sales over the years. KREATOR fused Metallica’s thrash innovations with Venom’s proto-black metal imagery and is often credited with helping to pioneer the death metal and black metal genres. The band’s style has varied over their storied career, from a Venom-inspired speed metal sound, to thrash metal, and a period of transitioning from thrash to industrial metal and gothic metal throughout the 1990s, from which these reissues are drawn. In the early 2000s, KREATOR returned to their more straight up thrash sound, which has continued to their most recent album, 2017’s ‘Gods Of Violence’, which charted top twenty in ten countries including a #1 slot in Germany.
The four albums being reissued are ‘Coma Of Souls’ (originally released in 1990), ‘Renewal’ (1992), ‘Cause For Conflict (1995), and ‘Outcast (1997). The records have been remastered by Andy Pearce (Black Sabbath, Voivod, Motorhead, Anthrax) and will be available in multiple formats including coloured vinyl. ‘Coma Of Souls’ and ‘Outcast’ will now include previously unreleased, bonus live tracks, recorded in Germany in 1990 and at 1998’s Dynamo Open Air festival. ‘Renewal’ and ‘’Cause For Conflict’ also have 3 bonus tracks each.
