The Folkwang Museum in Essen, Germany — the hometown of veteran thrashers KREATOR — has launched the exhibition "A Star is Born - Photography and Rock Since Elvis". The exhibition includes a photo of KREATOR mainman Mille Petrozza, which you can view below.
As previously reported, Mille has contributed guest vocals to "Beyond Hell/Above Heaven", the fourth studio album from Danish metal rock 'n' rollers VOLBEAT, Other musicians who are scheduled to appear on the CD include MERCYFUL FATE guitarist Michael Denner and NAPALM DEATH's Mark "Barney" Greenway. Additionally, Jacob Oelund of the Copenhagen rockabilly outfit TAGGY TONES and songwriter Hanrik Hall swung by the studio to lay down some seriously swinging double bass and harmonica.
Commented Mille: "It was great fun to work with VOLBEAT!
"The song I sang on is a powerful metal tune... full-on VOLBEAT at their best!
"Many bands ask me to do guest vocals on their albums, but most of the time I don't feel musically challenged, so in many cases I pass. With VOLBEAT, I felt at ease and comfortable right from the start, because I'm a big fan of their previous albums.
"I'm excited to be a part of this amazing new one!"
KREATOR will re-release its latest studio album, "Hordes Of Chaos", in North America as a high-quality box set via SPV/Steamhammer on August 10.
