KREATOR: 'At The Pulse Of Kapitulation' DVD Trailer Available

A trailer for the upcoming KREATOR DVD, "At The Pulse Of Kapitulation - Live In East Berlin 1990", can be viewed at this location (Quicktime required).

Following their truly global Enemy of God World Tour, thrash gods KREATOR will be parking the steamrollers for a while and taking a creative break in 2008 to concentrate on writing new material and recording their next album. Live activity for the band in 2008 will only be sporadic, consisting primarily of selected festival appearances. KREATOR's next album is currently scheduled for release in January of 2009, to be followed by an extensive world tour later in the year.

To make the long wait a little less painful for KREATOR fans, March of 2008 sees the re-release on DVD of "Live in East Berlin" and "Hallucinative Comas", both re-edited and previously only available on VHS video cassette. The DVD release goes out under the title "At The Pulse Of Kapitulation - Live In East Berlin 1990".

Commented KREATOR mainman Mille Petrozza: "Over the years, I've met lots of people in and around Berlin whose first metal experience ever was the concert we did there in the early '90s at the Werner Seelenbinder Halle. The new DVD features some of these people in recent interviews, and there are also some original quotes from back then. Words don't do justice to the energy that was in the air that day in East Berlin, and the whole event can only be described as utterly unique and historic.

"Up until now this legendary concert was only available as a VHS video with less-than-ideal sound quality. But Niels Folta and I have carefully digitalized all the material and upgraded it to today's standards, re-edited everything and called in Andy Sneap to mix it all in 5.1 sound format. The result is a tremendous upgrade in the quality of the whole thing without destroying the early '90s charm of the original. Plus, the DVD also contains the 'Hallucinative Coma' video from 1991. This was our mini-horror movie for the 'Coma of Souls' album at the time. For the DVD, original director Andreas Marshall has personally re-edited his own 'Director's Cut', featuring never-seen-before scenes that the censors just couldn't stomach back in the day. All in all, this new DVD is a great metal package featuring the best of the original and plenty of extra features to get your head around!"

"At The Pulse Of Kapitulation - Live In East Berlin 1990" will be released in Europe on March 31, 2008 (in Germany three days earlier) and in the U.S. on March 25, 2008.
