German thrash metal legends Kreator are going to work with Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Cavalera Conspiracy) as the producer of their upcoming fifteenth studio album, which will serve as the follow-up to 2017’s Gods Of Violence and is tentatively due later this year or early next year.
The news was broken by frontman and gutiarist Mille Petrozza, who talked to Metalitalia Podcast about the current state of the record and its musical direction:
“It’s definitely different. It’s hard for me to describe it but is definitely more thrash. It has a lot of melodies, a lot of traditional parts and ingredients of the last four-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 are working with Arthur Rizk. That’s what we have planned at this point. We are already writing, exchanging demos and discussing recording techniques.”
