The year 2011 was awesome for German thrash metal. WithSodom and Destruction both releasing some really great albums and Kreatortearing it up on the summer festival circuit. It seems that the big three of Teutonic thrash terror are all running on all cylinders. It looks like there is no end in sight to the great news for two of the three anyway. Kreator have entered to studio to record the follow up to their last offering “Hordes of Chaos.” I’m really looking forward to this album I’ve loved the last several Kreator albums and I’m sure that I’m not the only one out there who thinks that. The other great news is regarding on of the best live bands I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing: Destruction. The band has begun work on their newest album which will mark 30 years for this great band. This is also highly anticipated by many because last years “Day of Reckoning” was mind boggling. In fact it was one of my favorites of the year. Not many details have emerged regarding these two releases, but when they do I will share them with you.
Germany also has a few new bands that are pretty rad and you all need to check out. First would be a band called Pessimist. This band released a full length entitled “Call to War” that I’m really into. Look for a full review in the coming days. Trust me though you’re going to want to pick this album up. It’s heavy and really brings something new to the table. The second band I would like to share with you is a band called Nucleator. These guys are pretty unknown but they have a full length album coming out in April. From what I have heard from this band I’m anticipating this release just as much as the Kreator and Destruction releases discussed earlier in this post. Look for a full review of that album when drops.
