Guitarist/vocalist Mille Petrozza stated in a recent interview: “The songs are coming along great and I think it’s OK to say that this will be our most epic album so far. There’s some classical, a lot of traditional metal, and, of course, a huge dose of thrash metal influences in the new stuff. Everyone in the band is very excited at this point. The demos sound killer so far, we have about 10 songs we’re working on.

.

“It’s always a little hard for me to talk about music has been written  but is not released yet. It will definitely have all the Kreator trademarks. The lyrics will talk about nowadays stuff, as usual, so it will be like a photograph  of the year 2012. Also the lyrics will deal a lot of things that are actually happening at this point in time. It will be like reading a newspaper or something  [laughs], with all the stuff happening. And, of course, the music will be typical Kreator, and we also wanna expand the sound and progress as musicians. I mean,  this lineup has been the strongest lineup Kreator ever had since ten years, and now I think we’re ready to come out with an album that blows everyone away.”

.

Petrozza continued: “We have tapped Wes Benscoter [Black Sabbath, Dio, Slayer, Bloodbath] for the cover art. I can tell you this much: the artwork will be insane!”

.

Petrozza  also commented on Kreator’s collaboration with Jens Bogren: “He’s really good; I like him. I like the sounds that he gets. And I think the combination — Jens Bogren and Kreator — it will be pretty heavy”.
