Germany’s biggest export in thrash returns; the band that inspired generations of young bands and has been around for nearly 30 years…. KREATOR! These German legends are back in Vancouver to rip your face off with their newest album release Phantom Antichrist which is steeped in solos, riffs, and the usual Kreator-esque thrash madness. For fans of fast, furious, and air guitar worthy metal, you’ll love the latest release.

For decades, this pioneering band has shaped and defined the genre of thrash. Trends be damned, Overkill’s supercharged and obscenely energized new album The Electric Age will deliver all the delicacies head banging and air guitaringhas to offer.

They are a band with extremely aggressive and energetic live performance, and hold determination to drive the old-school sound forward into the next decade with a sense of fresh air and originality.
