The schedule of KREATOR’s latest European tour had set Oberhausen in the German Ruhr Area for the grand finale on December 22, 2012 - and the home match for Essen’s thrashers was even more triumphant than already expected.
The accompanying supports FUELED BY FIRE, NILE and MORBID ANGEL had given people a grilling in the sold-out venue, but Kreator topped things off easily and the crowd of approx. 2.500 maniacs just went nuts.
No doubt about it: Phantom Antichrist, the band’s first release via their new partner Nuclear Blast Records, means another major step forward even for a band already being on top of their game like Kreator are for years now, if not decades.
