KREATOR 'Phantom Antichrist'
Single Cover Artwork By Wes Benscoter 
KREATOR have set 'Phantom Antichrist' as the title for their new album, to be released June 1 in Europe and June 5 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD is currently being recorded at Fasci-
nation Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden with producer Jens Bogren (Opeth, Soilwork, Devin Townsend, Amon Amarth). 

KREATOR will release a seven-inch single containing the 'Phantom Antichrist' title track on April 20. The collector's item will be available in colored red vinyl (limited to 250 pieces) as well as in clear vinyl (limited to 250 pieces, exclusively available at the Nuclear Blast mailorder). 

The 'Phantom Antichrist' artwork for both single and album was designed by Wes Benscoter (Black Sabbath, Dio, Slayer).  

Vocalist Mille Petrozza comments on 'Phantom Antichrist': "It's always a little hard for me to talk about music has been written but is not released yet. It will definitely have all the KREATOR trademarks. The lyrics will talk about nowadays stuff, as usual, so it will be like a photography of the year 2012. Also the lyrics will deal a lot of things that are actually happening at this point in time. It will be like reading a newspaper or something, with all the stuff happening. And, of course, the music will be typical KREATOR, and we also wanna expand the sound and progress as musicians. I mean, this line-up has been the strongest lineup KREATOR ever had since ten years, and now I think we're ready to come out with an album that blows everyone away."
