cover for the 7 inch.

I don't know what to expect really. Kreator is still one of my favourite bands but I didn't think Hordes was that great of an album. The cover looks like the one on Violent Revolution and the title sounds pretty generic. I hope its good but I'll have to wait and hear some material before I make any judgements.

What do you guys think?
Can't wait to hear new Kreator stuff but I hope it doesn't sound like Hordes of Chaos Pt II. It's a good album but I think they only repeated themselves with it.

Phantom Antichrist? strange title for a Kreator album..
I just came to post this..... Damn. :lol:

Name is stupid if you ask me. Hope the music is good.
I like Kreator. I think that Hordes of Chaos was a decent effort. But this album cover... massive turn off. IMO almost as shit as Violent Revolution.
I loved Hordes of Chaos and I think the album art is awesome.

Can't wait to see Kreator tour dates for N. America

How about a U.S. tour featuring


I don't understand... The album cover hasn't been unveiled yet has it? Or am I just being retarded?

Incorrect! It is ME being a retard; I wound up saying album art AGAIN instead of 7-Inch art. But yeah, I was told this maybe a smaller part of the picture to be on the album cover. I still don't like it, and if it were to come to that, I'd be a tad bit disappointed.

Oh well, it's the music that counts.
