new testament song on their myspace. definitely in the vein of the gathering only with a guitar solo
as expected, its more of a continuation of the 'are you dead yet' sound, only better than anything off that cd. imo great song.

wicked tour. cant wait to see KREATOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kirk Hammett: I think it's the best album we've put out in, say, fifteen years.
Krone.at: Oh, but that rules out quite a lot of work you've done in the past!
Kirk Hammett: Yeah, it's our eleventh studio album, but it feels like our sixth. It's just a really spectacular range of songs. This time we're not afraid to refer to our past music in order to create future music. People will see that we've kind of embraced our old vocabulary again and are using that vocabulary to express new things. I'm super excited to make this album, finish it and release it — 'cause then we can go out and play it to the people. We might have stretched our cores a little too much in the last fifteen years, but we've always came back to what we originally are and have been. I think with this album we're definitely going a little more back into our roots.
Krone.at: Does this mean, you're heading from "St. Anger" as a start further into, let's say, the raw meat!?
Kirk Hammett: Yeah, its super raw! There are some songs on that album that are so fast, that James and I kinda look at each other and go, "Ouch! Our wrist are gonna fall off." There are a lot of really, really fast songs, a whole lot of really heavy stuff. We changed our approach to writing the songs, all of us were working on the material this time. We also changed our tuning. With "St. Anger" we had the guitars really low. This time, we tuned the guitars back up to what they originally were for the first five albums. Because we've done that, James' voice sounds more like it did in the '80s than it did in the '90s. There's a lot of changes that we've made, but I believe that they are all for the better.
I've been wanting them to say something like this, u know, indicate that the next cd isnt going to suck so bad this time. They're making it out to be a really killer record but im gonna have to download it before i buy it lol
