German thrashers KREATOR will shoot a video clip for the song “Destroy What Destroys You” during their show with EXODUS at Espacio Broadway in Santiago, Chile this Saturday, October 17. The clip will be directed by Chilean video artist Carlos Toro, who has previously worked with VADER, MERCENARY and LACRIMOSA.
Lyrically, the track is a homage to German protest singer Rio Reiser.
Commented KREATOR guitarist/vocalist Mille Petrozza: “To shoot a video clip in Santiago del Chile is like a dream come true for us! KREATOR has had a very special relationship with the Chilean metalheads since day one! We are really looking forward to capture the magic, that has been present every time we played the city! Vamos, people from Chile! Let’s show the rest of the world that Santiago is one of the most metal cities on earth!!! We’ll see you on Saturday.”
KREATOR drummer Ventor (real name: Jürgen Reil) is sitting the band’s current tour dates due to “some personal issues.” Filling in for him between September 11 in Moscow, Russia and October 31 in Sao Paulo, Brazil is Marco Minnemann, who is best known for his stints in NECROPHAGIST, ILLOGICIST and EPHEL DUATH.

KREATOR’s new album, “Hordes Of Chaos”, sold around 2,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 165 on The Billboard 200 chart. 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.
The CD was released in three different versions. The jewel case edition includes the ten regular album songs, and the deluxe version features an additional bonus DVD with an atmospheric making-of in super-8 quality courtesy of a Berlin filmmaker. As a third option, the ultra-deluxe version comes with a t-shirt, a worthwhile photo book and an extended version of the bonus DVD, as well as the CD.
The “Hordes Of Chaos” artwork was created once again by Joachim Luetke. Luetke designed the artwork for KREATOR’s last album, “Enemy Of God”, as well as past releases from bands like DIMMU BORGIR, ARCH ENEMY and RAGE.
