KREATOR - "HATE ÜBER ALLES"

German thrash legends Kreator are releasing their 15th album, Hate Über Alles, on June 3 via Nuclear Blast, and they've just put out the title track, a ripper that sounds like classic Kreator. "'Hate Über Alles' reflects the time we’re living in," said frontman Mille Petrozza in a statement. "Everything is really loud and aggressive. The way we communicate has changed, thanks to social media. It causes a lot of imbalance. The world is in a state of disrepair. Life is not harmonic right now, it’s disharmonic… that’s where I was going with the title."

Barcelona straightedge band Verdugo are releasing their debut 7" ...es tu peor enemigo on March 1 via Triple B Records, and lead single "No Somos Iguales" is a classic '80s hardcore-style ripper that sounds totally urgent and vital in 2022 too.
