German trash metal veterans KREATOR will release a new live set, “London Apocalypticon – Live At The Roundhouse”, on February 14, 2020 via Nuclear Blast. The cold fingers of winter had already reached out for the British capital but there was one place in London that was set on fire as KREATOR thrill their fans with an extensive live show and take their breath-taking performance once again to another level. The effort was professionally filmed and recorded on December 16, 2018 at the Roundhouse in London, England. The London show closed out KREATOR‘s European co-headlining tour with DIMMU BORGIR. Also appearing on the bill were HATEBREED and BLOODBATH.
KREATOR frontman Mille Petrozza states: “Hordes! Welcome to ‘London Apocalypticon’! This is the culmination of a long and epic touring cycle in support of ‘Gods Of Violence’ — over 150 shows, five continents and many amazing memories made! We’re very proud to share this amazing piece of KREATOR history with you; three professionally shot shows, plus professionally mixed and mastered audio; all of which has been meticulously laboured over to produce the best-ever KREATOR live release! But if this is still not enough for you…you can witness the real thing this spring when we embark on the ‘State Of Unrest’ tour with the mighty LAMB OF GOD and POWER TRIP! Respect!”
To mark the occasion, KREATOR has previewed the new release with the first single “Satan Is Real”, capturing the mood and spirit of the concert’s stunning visuals. Check out the video below.
The preorder for “London Apocalypticon – Live At The Roundhouse” starts on December 13.
