One of the heaviest bands from Germany, Kreator is back on the road in 2020 playing all their classics and new songs. Until now they have scheduled dates for March and April in Europe. They will play in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, France, Belgium and United Kingdom.
The band consists in Mille Petrozza (Guitar and vocals), Jürgen “Ventor” Reil (Drums), Sami Yli-Sirniö (Guitar) and Frédéric Leclercq (Bass).
The band was formed in Essen, in 1982. Their lineup has changed multiple times over its 37-year career, most noticeably with their bassists and lead guitarists. Petrozza and Reil are the only two original members left in Kreator, though the latter had one hiatus from the band, from 1994 to 1996.
Their musical style is similar to that of their compatriots Destruction, Sodom and Tankard. Also with those three bands, Kreator has been referred to as one of the “Big Four” of Teutonic thrash metal.
I am a Brazilian journalist, a Classic Rock and Heavy Metal lover. Music has always been part of my life, helped me through tough moments and was with me to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After college I did a postgraduate degree in digital communication. This has helped me to make the website better and bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
