KREATOR are set to release their first new album in five years, “Hate Über Alles”, on June 3, and are currently streaming their new single “Midnight Sun.” You can check it out below.
The track features vocalist Sofia Portanet, marking the German thrash pioneers’ first time ever collaborating with a female artist.
“‘Midnight Sun’ is something a little new for us, our first time collaborating with a female artist,” says KREATOR frontman Mille Petrozza. “When I was writing the song, I could hear this Oracle type voice over the pre-chorus and chorus and I immediately reached out to my talented friend, Sofia Portanet who is an emerging artist, here in Germany.
He continued: “Sofia added exactly what I was looking for and gives the song a really dark, ethereal vibe. The video is the second production we shot with Tom Schlagkamp and his team. The concept was drawn up from the song’s lyrics which I envisaged to take place during a ritual sacrifice. Director, Tom came back with an idea loosely based on Ari Aster’s Midsommar which has powerful visuals, perfect for a killer metal music video!”
“Hate Über Alles” was produced by Arthur Rizk (POWER TRIP, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY) and features artwork by Eliran Kantor (VENOM PRISON, SIGH, THY ART IS MURDER).
The record is also KREATOR’s first to feature new bassist Frédéric Leclercq (ex-DRAGONFORCE).
