Kreator — Gods of Violence

kreator 1 The 10 Most Anticipated Metal Albums of 2017

Release Date: Jan 27th via Nuclear Blast

German thrash legends Kreator aren’t intimidated by newcomers — hell, they relish a challenge. They ushered in a more extreme wing of thrash in the ’80s alongside countrymen Sodom and Destruction, and save for some misdirections in the ’90s, they haven’t let up. “Satan Is Real” proves they still have all their ’80s energy, and the rest of Gods of Violence is sure to live up. Like Immolation, this will be among the cream of the elders in 2017.
