Overkill and Kreator Philly Photo Special
Metal juggernauts Overkill and Kreator plowed through Philly’s Trocadero Theatre for a special Halloween celebration with support from LA’s Warbringer. Blow The Scene‘s Senior Photographer, Dante Torrieri was on hand to deliver another extended photo set for your viewing pleasure featured below the fold.
Show openers- Los Angeles based thrash metal band Warbringer recently debuted a new music video for song “Black Sun, Black Moon” taken from the brand new album, IV: Empires Collapse, on Century Media. Singer John Kevill commented on this latest video offering, “We went out to the most desolate stretch of highway we could find out in the Mojave desert. It’s a fitting location for this song, which is a motorin’ heavy metal tune, with a Priest highway-rollin’ type feel crossed with the forbidding mysticism of the night!” Enjoy the new video below the fold.
German thrash metal overlords Kreator have had quite the run in 2013 having held a highly successful theatrical premiere of their Dying Alive DVD at the renowned Lichtburg Theatre in the band’s hometown of Essen, Germany. The entire band attended the event and took part in a Q&A session after the screening followed by an autograph signing. Kreator’s Dying Alive video features the full frontal shots of these thrashing veterans at Kreator’s sold-out, hometown performance in Oberhausen, Germany shot by 24 cameras plus guitar POV cams and three ‘inside the chaos’ mosh-pit cams. View the live video clip of ‘Death To The World’ below the fold. The band continues to support their 13th studio LP, 2012’s Phantom Antichrist available through Nuclear Blast.
Formed in 1980- Jersey Metal legends, Overkill entered the studio in August to begin tracking their 17th studio album due out in March of 2014. This latest effort will follow 2012’s The Electric Age, released via E1 Music and Nuclear Blast Europe to overwhelmingly positive reviews from the metal community. The forthcoming studio material was tracked at Gear Recording and mixed by Greg Reely (Machine Head, Coldplay), who also mixed The Electric Age.
