KREATOR Frontman Interviewed In Amsterdam; Video Available

Holland's Toazted conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Mille Petrozza of German thrashers KREATOR when the band played Amsterdam on January 24, 2009. Watch the chat in two parts below.

"Hordes Of Chaos", the new album from KREATOR, registered the following first-week chart positions:

Germany: #16
Finland: #16
Austria: #33
Czech Republic: #35
Hungary: #39
Sweden: #47
Switzerland: #57
Holland: #66
Norway: #73

"Hordes Of Chaos" sold around 2,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at No. 7 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

KREATOR's video for the song "Hordes Of Chaos" was shot on November 2, 2008 in Berlin, Germany with director Jörn Heitmann (RAMMSTEIN), who has also worked on the band's video for the song "Enemy Of God".

Mille Petrozza told HeadbangersBlog.com about the clip: "It's a little cliché, of course. It's a sword-and-sorcery, 'Conan the Barbarian 300' kind of thing, but it's pretty brutal and I think it's fun. I really like the director and I think he did a good job. It was hard for him, but for us it was easy, because our part took only two ours. But we had to wait a lot because they had to shoot these fighting scenes the whole day. So, we worked for two hours and waited for eight.

"In the video there's a pile of dead people on the ground and we're in the middle of them. Of course, they weren't really dead, but it still felt kind of strange to be between all these people lying on the ground on this hill and it was kind of funny, too because they were there pretending to be dead and we had to perform above them while they just lay there. But they did a great job and I'm really happy."
