Kreator Reveal Producer For New Album

During a recent appearance on the Metalitalia Podcast, Kreator vocalist/guitarist Mille Petrozza talked a bit about the band’s upcoming album. Notably, he also revealed that Arthur Rizk will produce the effort.

Petrozza said the following about release plans:

“Last summer, in August, we felt that we were done [writing], and we were very enthusiastic about, like, ‘Okay, this is almost an album. We have 12 songs. And we take the 10 best, or whatever we come up with.’ And we already planned on going into the studio in February. Now it’s February, and the world is still kind of fucked with the COVID. So we have to wait and be patient.

I want the album to come out and go on a world tour right afterwards. I don’t see us putting out a COVID album, or something, and just have it [disappear]. And people go, like, ‘Okay, there was an album. Okay, they have a new album or not? Am I going to this tour or not?’

I know that the world is changing — albums don’t have the importance that they might have had 10 years ago anymore — but I refuse to believe that. Especially in metal, there’s still a lot of people that celebrate an album from the beginning to the end. And I think the last genre of music where this is gonna die will be metal, because people really love albums.

I think going on a tour, the artwork, everything has to connect. So we’ll wait until that’s possible again, and then we’ll put out the album.”

He also added the following about the direction of the new music and the band’s plans to work with Rizk:

“It’s definitely different. It’s hard for me to describe, but I think it’s definitely more thrash again. It has a lot of melody, and it has a lot of traditional parts, and it has a lot of ingredients of the last four or five albums. But it also has some very old-school moments. I think it’s definitely the next step.”

“At this point, it looks like we’re working with Arthur Rizk. That’s what we have planned at this point. And I’m kind of exchanging demo tapes and discussing recording techniques [with him]. So, yeah, it looks like we’re working with Arthur.”
