And there goes -berc with the next SPV advance/promo. This time it's the new album by German Thrash Metal legends Kreator entitled "Hordes of Chaos". Kreator are one of Europe's oldest Thrash Metal bands and records like "Endless Pain" (1985) , "Pleasure To Kill" (1986) and "Coma Of Souls" (1990) are considered to be instant classics that no metal fan should miss out!
Fans have waited about 4 years for Hordes of Chaos and from what I've read the production was very intensive and complex, so I hope that the album won't disappoint and that it will cause as much neck pain as "Enemy Of God" (2005).

Makes sure to get the retail version on January 16th, 2009 (Germany) or on January 13th, 2009 (U.S.).

The album will be distributed in 3 different versions:
"The jewel case edition includes the ten regular album songs, and the deluxe version features an
additional bonus DVD with an atmospheric making-of in super-8 quality courtesy
of a Berlin filmmaker. As a third option, the ultra-deluxe version comes with a
t-shirt, a worthwhile photo book and an extended version of the bonus DVD, as
well as the CD."
Genre: Thrash Metal
Origin: Essen, Northrhine-Westphalia (Germany)
Label: SPV Records
Street: January 13th 2009 (U.S.), January 16th, 09 (Germany)
Release: November 25th, 2008
