Kreator and Overkill to co-headline Hammerfest 6 with Soilwork, Unleashed, Grand Magus and more announced…

Hey there fellow entertainment junkies, we’ve got some great news for you today, we have been given the list of the first announcements for Hammerfest 6 (Book of the Dead) which will taking place on March 13th and 16th in 2014.

Festival promoter John Davis of Chic Talent said “Following last year’s event, which included both Sodom and Destruction, we were really keen to have Germany’s other leading thrash metal act play at Hammerfest. We are glad to be able to announce Kreator’s inclusion in this year’s bill. Last year’s event was considered by many to be our best yet. Thriving in its new location Hafan y Mor Park, North Wales, we aim to raise the bar higher still.


Kreator released their 13th  studio album in 2012 titled ‘Phantom Antichrist’ on Nucleur Blast Records.
