Today’s Midday Music hails from Germany’s Kreator.
Kreator is known as one of the “Big Four” of Teutonic thrash metal, along with Sodom, Tankard and Destruction.
With this album, the band adopted a sort of more experimental sound that actually sounds kind of heavily influenced by punk music to me.
Renewal is their sixth album. It is also the last album to feature original bassist Rob Fioretti. Today marks the 25th anniversary of its release. Our song is the title track “Renewal.” Also, the album also marked the 10th year since the band had formed. So, that means Kreator is 35 years old.
