KREATOR Interview 11/8/13

We had the pleasure to catch up with the legendary and Teutonic thrash master Mille Petrozza of Kreator during their “Legends of Thrash” tour. We were able to get Mille’s thoughts about his 31-year career and discuss Kreator’s lyrical themes and inspiration, especially in relation to the band’s social protest lyrical legacy. More specifically we discussed the ‘Death to the World’ track from the Phantom Antichrist album and its intended environmental message alongside Mille’s thoughts on this global issue. We were also able to explore Mille’s perspectives on side projects and guest appearances. Mille also talks about different bands that would make up a great touring bill while also discussing upcoming future plans for Kreator, including another U.S. run in 2014-15. For last, we then get a bit more personal and delve into who Miland “Mille” Petrozza is outside Kreator; his guitar collection, his vegan lifestyle, and even his television habits are included in the conversation.

We then had chance to discuss, in greater detail, the lyrical, music, and production aspects of the album. Furthermore, the band also gave us a track-by-track review where we discussed riffs, lyrics, overall album speed, and their choice for their Black Sabbath cover.
