The U.S release dates for Coma Of Souls and Renewal will be Friday, March 2nd, 2018 and Cause For Conflict and Outcast will be released on Friday, March 9th, 2018.

North American tour dates confirmed for mid-February to mid-March 2018.

Formed in Essen, Germany in 1984, KREATOR are arguably the most influential and successful European thrash metal band ever, like many of their European speed metal brethren, KREATOR fused METALLICA's thrash innovations with VENOM's proto-black metal imagery. Often credited with helping pioneer death metal and black metal by containing several elements of what was to become those genres. The band has achieved worldwide sales of over two million units for combined sales of all their albums, making them one of the best-selling German thrash metal bands of all time. The band’s style has changed several times over the years, from a VENOM-inspired speed metal sound, later moving in to thrash metal, and including a period of transitioning from thrash to industrial metal and gothic metal throughout the 1990s. In the early 2000s, KREATOR returned to their classic thrash sound, which has continued to the present. Their last album Gods Of Violence charted top twenty in ten countries, including a number one slot in their home country of Germany.

COMA OF SOULS – 2CD Mediabook & Triple Gatefold 3LP (Transparent Red Vinyl)

KREATOR’s fifth album, Coma Of Souls came towards the end of the thrash metal explosion of the 1980’s and retained their classic thrash sound whilst combining more melodic elements of classic metal bands like IRON MAIDEN and JUDAS PRIEST. Critically acclaimed by both fans and press, Coma Of Souls was a strong, firm step forward for the band, it proved they weren’t content to sit and wallow in the thrash back waters but were determined to move into a new decade with a bold, thrusting sound.

Tracklist:

  • "When The Sun Burns Red"
  • "Coma Of Souls"
  • "People Of The Lie"
  • "World Beyond"
  • "Terror Zone"
  • "Agents Of Brutality"
  • "Material World Paranoia"
  • "Twisted Urges"
  • "Hidden Dictator"
  • "Mental Slavery"
Bonus Tracks (Live In Fürth, Germany – 06/12/1990)
  • "When The Sun Burns Red"
  • "Betrayer"
  • "Terrible Certainty"
  • "Extreme Aggression"
  • "Coma Of Souls"
  • "People Of The Lie"
  • "Choir Of The Damned"
  • "The Pestilence"
  • "Toxic Trace"
  • Drum Solo
  • "Terror Zone"
  • "Pleasure To Kill"
  • "Flag Of Hate"
  • "Agents Of Brutality"
  • "Riot of Violence"
  • "Tormentor"
RENEWAL – 1CD Mediabook & Gatefold 2LP (Transparent Green Vinyl)

KREATOR’s sixth album, Renewal was originally released in October 1992, and took Kreator fans a little by surprise. While the band had established a reputation as a formidable thrash metal act, one of the best in Europe, this time they had really pushed away from their comfort zone. Bringing in both industrial and hardcore injections helped to make this one of the most fascinating and intriguing extreme albums of the era. At a time when the entire cutting edge scene was shifting, thanks to the emergence of grunge, KREATOR proved they were still ahead of most of their peers.

Tracklist:

  • "Winter Martyrium"
  • "Renewal"
  • "Reflection"
  • "Brainseed"
  • "Karmic Wheel"
  • "Realitäskontrolle"
  • "Zero To None"
  • "Europe After The Rain"
  • "Depression Unrest"
Bonus Tracks
  • "Winter Martyrium" (Rare Version)
  • "Trauma"
  • "Europe After The Rain" (Remix)
CAUSE FOR CONFLICT – 1CD Mediabook & Gatefold 2LP (Blue vinyl)

KREATOR’s seventh album, Cause For Conflict was originally released in July 1995, musically the band took a different path to the one that hard marked out its predecessor Renewal. While certainly not abandoning the experimental nuances which had been so crucial to the previous album. However, there was something of a return to familiar territory this time around. Both the songs "Lost" and "Isolation" came out as singles and the passage of time has given Cause For Conflict a sense of belonging, because there’s little doubt it remains one of the bands most undervalued records.

Tracklist:

  • "Prevail"
  • "Catholic Despot"
  • "Progressive Proletarians"
  • "Crisis Of Disorder"
  • "Hate Inside Your Head"
  • "Bomb Threat"
  • "Men Without God"
  • "Lost"
  • "Dogmatic"
  • "Sculpture Of Regret"
  • "Celestial Deliverance"
  • "Isolation"
Bonus Tracks
  • "Suicide In Swamps"
  • "Limits Of Liberty"
  • "State Oppression"
OUTCAST – 2CD Mediabook & Gatefold 2LP (Transparent Orange Vinyl)

With hindsight, and a sense of history, Outcast is certainly one of KREATOR’s most inventive and important albums. The German gargantuan-watt gladiators’ eighth studio release was different to anything they’d done in the past during a time when metal was in turmoil due to the grunge and Nu Metal explosions. The title Outcast was appropriate for how the band felt in the late 1990’s and when Outcast was released in July 1997 it wasn’t a huge selling album, nonetheless it proved they were still an exciting, individual and focused band.

Tracklist:

  • "Leave This World Behind"
  • "Phobia"
  • "Forever"
  • "Black Sunrise"
  • "Nonconformist"
  • "Enemy Unseen"
  • "Outast"
  • "Stronger Than Before"
  • "Ruin Of Life"
  • "Whatever It May Take"
  • "Alive Again"
  • "Against The Rest"
  • "A Better Tomorrow"
Bonus Tracks (Live At Dynamo Open Air 1998)
  • "Intro : Dr. Wagner, Part 3"
  • "Terror Zone"
  • "Lost"
  • "Leave This World Behind"
  • "Phobia"
  • "Black Sunrise"
  • "Choir Of The Damned"
  • "Pleasure To Kill"
  • "Whatever If May Take"
  • "Extreme Aggression"
  • "Renewal"
