Germany’s legendary thrash metal titans KREATOR are confirmed for Inferno Metal Festival 2020! Organisers are proud to have one of the godfathers of German thrash metal playing at Inferno Metal Festival for the very first time at thier 20 year anniversary.
KREATOR has a story that go all the way back to 1982 when the band was called Tormentor. This early stage laid the foundation for an exceptional career that would see KREATOR rise to become part of what’s to be considered the German equivalent of the Big Four (Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth) of American thrash metal – the Big Three of German thrash, alongside Sodom and Destruction.
Though rooted in thrash metal, KREATOR has never been afraid to push the genre‘s boundaries both musically and lyrically. This vitality has made KREATOR one of the best thrash metal bands over several decades. From legendary classics like “Endless Pain” and “Pleasure to Kill” to newer albums like “Phantom Antichrist” and “Gods of Violence” – KREATOR will sure as hell tear down the roof at Rockefeller when they come to Inferno Metal Festival for the first time.
