KREATOR – Interview with Mille Petrozza

November 24th, 2013

kreator_nh_0709 (580x522)

Interview with  guitarist/vocalist Mille Petrozza

By Peter Atkinson

All photos from https://www.facebook.com/KreatorOfficial

German thrash metal stalwarts Kreator are winding down what has been a productive 2013 in fine style with the release of their new live DVD/CD Dying Alive, an aptly titled “Legends of Thrash” co-headlining tour of North America with Overkill and Warbringer, and the promise of a busy 2014 already ahead of them. Thirty years into a career that saw them ride the crest of the first wave of thrash in the mid ’80s, come crashing down like much of the rest of the metal world during the ’90s, and enjoy both a musical and commercial resurgence in the new millennium, the band are still going strong and remain vital and relevant.

On the phone from Seattle, Kreator founding guitarist/vocalist Mille Petrozza [who is joined in the band by original drummer Jürgen “Ventor” Reil, Finnish guitarist Sami Yli-Sirniö and bassist Christian “Speesy” Giesle] offered the following about the new DVD, lessons learned over a long career in the trenches, the new and old school of thrash, and getting put on the spot by a pair of 12-year-old girls.

Violent Evolution: The Story of KREATOR by Hilmar Bender; English edition out now!

November 13th, 2013
Violent Evolution: The Story of KREATOR by Hilmar Bender

Violent Evolution: The Story of KREATOR by Hilmar Bender

VIOLENT EVOLUTION tells the story of Kreator – the titans of teutonic thrash – from the coal-mining town of Essen, Germany. It is the story of a group of bored teenagers who brought the brutality of everyday life into the rehearsal room. They let their hair grow, formed a band and landed a record deal before they had even reached twenty.

Drawing on exclusive interviews with the band’s members (both past and present), family, producers, filmmakers and crew, Violent Evolution explores the band’s remarkable rise from formative years to spectacular success, headlining the greatest open-air stages on the planet.

This is their story, from the start to today; from Kindergarten (literally) to rulers of the Thrash Kingdom. An exciting chronicle of one of the most important thrash metal bands in the world.

Tuska Open Air – Suvilahti Helsinki Finland

August 29th, 2013

Tuska festival

TUSKA OPEN AIR FESTIVAL 2013

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY ARTO LEHTINEN AND MARKO SYRJALA

TUSKA AFTERPARTY FEAT. MARKY RAMONE’S BLITZKRIEG REVIEW  BY CHRISTER USENIUS

The Tuska Open Air Festival is definitely a real metal festival institution amongst all other metal festivals in Europe. This current area, Suvilahti, almost located in the heart of Helsinki, only a few kilometers away from the downtown, is the new home for Tuska for the second time. Suvilahti is more like an industrial environment with burning and hot asphalt underfoot. Tuska faced a serious battle to pull the audience as another festival named Rock The Beach was arranged on the same weekend in the Helsinki area. The line-up of that festival mostly pulled the normal radio friendly audience whereas the die-hard metal freaks arrived at the Tuska Open Air Festival. Tuska however managed to pull about 25.000 visitors during the weekend. That was pretty good as the line-up did look good, not that tempting to pull a mainstream audience.

Nightwish and Testament, and of course the legendary Danish King Diamond were headliners, but of course a few cult metal bands like Bolt Thrower, Lama, had to be  witnessed. The festival was an nice success although the event wasn’t sold out. Metal-Rules.com was present to check out a lot of bands and enjoy the metal in different forms.

HELLFEST 2013

July 17th, 2013

Hellfest Festival 2013

@ Clisson, France

21st- 23rd June 2013

Review by Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs
Photography by Tess Donohoe  Hellfest

It may be some people’s epitome of hell, Michael Buble fans I’m looking at you, but for the metal/rock community Hellfest’s towering gateway looks positively pearly. This year’s line-up is so jam-packed that I was looking for the little glass jars and labels. You’d make a fortune if you could bottle any number of the diverse scope of bands on the bill, with the riffs left in natch, but I’d like them to play their sets first.

Once inside that gateway the layout is much the same as last year, and that isn’t meant in a well-they-clearly-couldn’t-be-arsed sense, because Hellfest could teach most others a thing or 20 on how to put together a fan-friendly festival. Except when it comes to the number of toilets on site that is.

Whilst the Hellfest tree still dominates in its stark simplicity, the hidden beer gardens have gained a snazzy gateway of their own, which invites you into the woodlands. Instead of a fairytale monster at the end of the path though, you’ll find a winebar, which is win-win really. And at night the scrap-metal merch stands and bars still glow with their own rooftop fires.

Stage-wise we’ve got Main Stage 1 and 2, which continue their staggered times so that as one plays, the other sets up, and vice versa. The result is no waiting around for soundchecks or bands to start, just back-to-back bam-bam-bam metal. A similar set-up is in place at the Altar and the Temple, where you can find black metal, death metal and the like, then there’s the Valley which is home to the stoner and doom types, and the Warzone where the punk and hardcore drops.

Hellfest 2013 – it’s like being welcomed home.

SWEDEN ROCK 2013

July 12th, 2013

Swedenrock 2013

SWEDENROCK FESTIVAL 2013

Article and pictures by Arto Lehtinen and Marko Syrjälä

“Welcome to the show” – welcomed by KISS  when headlining the second day of the Sweden Rock fest. Well, once again the Finnish Metal-Rules.com team made their annual roadtrip to Sweden Rock. Metal Rules has covered Swedenrock since 2001, therefore it is quite logical to cover the festival again. The 2013 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock. Over 70 metal and rock bands offered one hell of an experience for attendees. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years as the festival has always been sold out. This year wasn’t any exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economic situation worldwide. It has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article on several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The weather was tremendous during these four days. The Metal-Rules.com team was there witnessing bands, not for having some beach party crap. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Rock on!

Kreator

Kreator

Kreator are known within the thrash metal community as something of legends, with their fast electric musical panache and flair for ferocious lyrics. They have become a corner stone of influence across the European scene as well as further afield. Tonight the German masters are accompanied by speedballs SSS, re-formed veterans, Xentrix and the up and rising metal troupe Evile.
