KREATOR - London Apocalypticon - Live At The Roundhouse

Released on: 2020-03-06

Keep the flag of hate flying high: Thrash legionaries KREATOR have just closed the most successful cycle of their entire career. For a band entering its 38th year, that's outright remarkable. Above all else, though, it's rare. Bloody rare. The hunger, the fury, the lust for noise – everyone who came out to see KREATOR live since they released their thundering “Gods of Violence” knows about the Thrash apocalypse Mille and his crew brought upon stages around the globe.

A huge European run with opening acts SEPULTURA and SOILWORK, an equally epic successor with DIMMU BORGIR and HATEBREED, tours and shows in North and South America, Australia, Asia and New Zealand, two festival seasons on all the genres' big players: This band has long turned into an untameable live force to be reckoned with.

Says a very satisfied Mille Petrozza: “This tour was the most successful in the history of the band!” It's only coherent to end this historic cycle with an equally fierce live release. Enter “London Apocalypticon – Live At The Roundhouse”, capturing the demolition-hammer-like show at London's revered The Roundhouse on December 16th, 2018 – as raw, as loud, as infernally direct as only a KREATOR show can be.

It's no coincidence that the band picked London as the epicentre of their furious new live release. There, on the shores of the Thames, did their bring their triumphant march of “Gods of Violence” to a grand finale after more than 150 shows on five continents. No wonder it's in the centre of each of the various formats “London Apocalypticon – Live At The Roundhouse” will be released in.

CD, triple CD, Blu-ray, Vinyl box set, earbook: Depending on the format the viciously aggressive London gig is getting backup by an extra two live shows: The frantic riot that was their Chile stunt as well as their co-headlining onslaught at Czech festival giant Masters of Rock. “We’re very proud to share this amazing piece of KREATOR history with you,” continues Mille. “Three professionally shot shows plus professionally mixed and mastered audio.”

While is pretty self-explanatory that we're not in for an over-polished stadium rock production, the relentlessly heavy, biting sound still pulverises every slightest shadow of doubt whether it's even possible to trap the raw energy of a KREATOR show. Oh, it is! Or, as Mille puts it: “This is the best KREATOR live release. Ever!”

Well, of course you never argue with Mille. And this time, there isn't even the tiniest reason to do so! After having filmed their last live DVD in Oberhausen near their hometown Essen, “London Apocalypticon – Live At The Roundhouse” is all about the global hordes of chaos faithfully pilgrimaging to every KREATOR show: “This release is a gift to our fans to celebrate unity of the global metal community!”

No better way to to it that with three scorching KREATOR rackets. “All three shows have a totally different vibe,” says Mille. Even some minor technical difficulties at their Chile show didn't stop the crowd from going completely mental, bestowing one of the most unforgettable show ever on the band.

For now, that is: On March 27th, 2020, KREATOR already head out again to conquer Europe on their “State of Unrest” tour, joined this time by the mighty LAMB OF GOD. This viciously dark Thrash tale, so it seems, is far from over.
