Kreator, Overkill and Warbringer

German thrash metallers Kreator seem hell-bent on outlasting cockroaches... and Slayer. In the mid-'80s, the band was one of the foremost metal bands, mixing precision with dark lyrical themes and bloody visuals. Three decades on—and now pushing 50—original members Mille Petrozza and Jürgen Reil are just as pissed off as they were on their 1986 classick Pleasure to Kill, which might make some wonder if someone pissed in their Bitburger. You can't argue with the results, though, and why would you?—the band's latest, Phantom Antichrist, is an absolute beast. Kreator probably deserves more accolades than they receive, and this show is sure to bring out the old-school heshers. If your neck gets sore, just take two aspirin with a Bloody Mary the next morning. MARK LORE
