German thrash titans KREATOR have announced they will be recording their show on December 22nd in Oberhausen, Germany, for a future DVD/Blu-Ray release.
Commented band leader Mille Petrozza: "The Phantom Antichrist world tour is among the most successful and amazing tours in the history of Kreator, thanks to all of you - the fans! So we have decided to record a new live album/ DVD/ Blu-Ray at our homecoming show in Oberhausen on December 22nd. The show will be recorded with 24(!) cameras and in 5.1. sound. We are trying to produce the ultimate Kreator concert experience for you to enjoy in your living room! So whoever wants to be a part of the spectacle, there are still tickets available for Oberhausen, but better hurry up: tickets are selling fast!"

Kreator's new video, for the track 'Civilization Collapse', taken from the full-length album, Phantom Antichrist, can be viewed below. The video clip is about the riots that took place in Greece most recently. While researching, the band's art direction team became aware of Marios Lolos, president of the Greek union of journalistic photographers. In the past Greek photographers have become victims to police brutality quite often, and Marios himself barely got out alive out of one these extreme and undemocratic attacks. When Kreator showed Marios both song and lyrics, he immediately agreed participate by offering parts of his huge photographic archives.
'Civilization Collapse' has been released on 7“ vinyl (retail version: black – cover 1 /and Nuclear Blast Mailorder only: red, yellow, white – cover 2) and as digital download and contains the super rare non-album track, 'Wolfchild', which was released earlier this year on the JOHN SINCLAIR tribute sampler, Dark Symphonies.
