“666 – World Divided” is by no means a leftover demo. This song marks the first new piece of music by mighty KREATOR since the release of their last studio album Gods Of Violence back in January 2017 as well as the first joint recording with their new bass player Frédéric Leclercq.
Co-produced by Andy Sneap and Markus Ganter and recorded in the legendary Hansa Studios in Berlin, “666 – World Divided” combines all trademarks that gave this band from the German Ruhr area a worldwide reputation. Thrash metal in a complex and extremely melodic way that will last for generations.
“After more than three long years we are more than happy to present you our brand new single ‘666 – World Divided‘”, said bandleader, singer, songwriter and guitarist Mille Petrozza. “The message of this song is more important than ever: we have to stick together in this more and more divided world. Take care and most importantly: stay metal! We can do it all together. We are one!”
The music video for “666 – World Divided” was created under the direction of Jörn Heitmann, who was responsible for the music videos for “Radio” and “Ausländer” by RAMMSTEIN.
KREATOR are one of the most influential and successful heavy metal bands in Germany. Already in the early 1980s, Mille Petrozza and his band established and shaped the heavy metal sub-genre Thrash Metal alongside METALLICA, SLAYER and MEGADETH. Since then KREATOR have been a significant influence on numerous heavy metal bands that follow them worldwide. With their 14th studio album Gods Of Violence the band from Essen, Germany made it to number 1 on the German album charts for the first time in 2017.
