On September 11, Andrew Schizodeluxe of The Rock Pit conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Mille Petrozza of German thrash metal veterans KREATOR. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

The Rock Pit: Well, let’s talk about the new DVD, “Dying Alive”. How did the idea of this new DVD come about?

Mille: Basically, it was the middle of the tour that we felt it went very well, we had many people at the shows and we knew it was a huge production and we wanted to give fans something back, like the memory. We felt this was the perfect time after 10 years of our last official DVD release, “Live Kreation”. We felt it was about time to come out with a new live DVD/live record package and we talked to the record company about it and they supported us and went along. We got a team of 24 cameras into the Turbinenhalle in Oberhausen, which is very close to where we live, and we had full control over everything that happened to make sure that the quality was 100% guaranteed.

The Rock Pit: Watching the live show on the DVD, there seems to be so many cameras around, you seemed to have captured every angle possible. Was that the band’s idea or was that someone else’s idea?

Mille: That was our idea — ours and the director. We talked about this for a long time and we definitely wanted to make sure that… I mean, it’s always different to when you are in a room and watch a band, it’s a different feel than being in your living room and watching it from your sofa or whatever, so we wanted to make sure that we got an impression of what it’s like to come to a KREATOR show.

The Rock Pit: I ask this question with a few other thrash bands regarding the recent resurgence of thrash metal in general. Obviously, the genre has never gone away but it seems to have crept back in a big way recently, which we haven’t seen in quite some time. What’s your take on this new interest in the genre?

Mille: For me, it never felt like it went away. It quietened in the ’90s, but that was metal in general, but now it’s stronger than ever because people have grown up. A lot of the bands that have been around back then that are still around are a little more controlled with how they handle things and they are more experienced. It comes down to the music. Now they live by fans that have grown up with this kind of music. Back in the day, neighbors were like strangers to this music and so the whole industry has changed. In my opinion, it has a lot to do with self-confidence nowadays; it’s a whole different deal. Nowadays, we are more confident in what we do and I think I can speak for a lot of the bands, a lot of the old-school thrash bands that nowadays when you get the feedback from the new generation of bands, it gives you a lot of energy.

The Rock Pit: Obviously you did a bit of experimenting in the ’90s and then came back to the thrash sound. Do you think you would ever try a different direction again or do you think you will stay in the thrash genre?

Mille: I think we experiment within our music. In the ’90s, we experimented on a whole album, nowadays we experiment within certain parts of certain songs but people don’t see that experimenting as much as we did in the ’90s. A lot of the elements, like in “Phantom Antichrist”, for example, is something that we took from that era and put it into our new music, so it’s always in motion. Our music always develops and we can look back on many, many hours that we have tried, riffs or melodies that we tried in the ’90s and we still profit a lot from that. It was not for nothing, even though some of the ’90s experimental albums weren’t that well received by the audience, for us, musically, it made us grow.

IRON MAIDEN‘s “Trooper” beer has finally arrived in the United States, and you can try it on Tuesday, August 13 at Rock N Roll Ribs, the barbecue restaurant owned by MAIDEN drummer Nicko McBrain and close friend Mitch Tanne, in Coral Springs, Florida.

On Monday, August 12, McBrain stopped by the 98.7 The Gater radio station in West Palm Beach, Florida. The station’s cameras were rolling in the iHeartRadio Theater, and they captured some excellent stuff.

In the “Beer Talk” video, Nicko breaks down the new brew. He also answered the age-old question… should an ale be drank cold or warm?

In the “Untapped” video, Nicko talks about the IRON MAIDEN tour, which just wrapped up in the U.K. with two shows at the O2 Arena.

The Trooper, which was officially launched on May 9 at Robinsons Brewery in Cheshire, United Kingdom, features packaging that is based on that artwork for IRON MAIDEN‘s single “The Trooper”, released in 1983.

U.K. national supermarket chain Morrissons recently revealed that Trooper was its fastest-ever-selling newly launched ale, with sales exceeding expectations tenfold.

Despite having planned his career meticulously over the past 25 years or so, even in the camp of German hard rock master Axel Rudi Pell surprises cannot be ruled out: Before playing in front of a sold-out Cologne crowd on the second leg of his wildly successful “Circle Of The Oath” tour, the opportunity arose for taping the whole show, with cameras being all over.

Rage: No tours any time soon :(

Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello has commented on the band’s recent inactivity since their 2008 reunion in a new interview. Basically, it already feels like too long since we lost our shit to Know Your Enemy and we want to know what’s up.

“We’d have to agree to go on one,” confirms Tom to Rolling Stone. Oh. Right. “Once a year, the band meets and very seriously discusses and turns down awesome offers to tour the world. That’s part of the program. I’m very grateful that we did agree to do this box set, which we’re very, very proud of. Some of those early videos, you know, we’re playing these clubs for 25 people. I remember that period very, very well. I had been in a lot of bands before Rage Against The Machine, bands that had tried hard to make it, and with that band, with Rage, it just spontaneously combusted. It immediately connected with something in the reptilian brain of fans of rock, hip-hop, punk, metal, activists in a way that was global right off the bat.”

On the topic of his relationship with his bandmates today, Tom adds, “Oh, I mean, we communicate fairly regularly, and my relationship with those three guys is what it’s been for some time. I love them. I consider them brothers and brothers-in-arms, and whether or not we ever play music again in any capacity is unknown. I’m grateful for the music we played together, and thank goodness the cameras were rolling at that first show at Cal State Northridge, and it’s been very hard. For me, as a fan, not just as a member of the band, it’s some of the most exciting stuff I’ve ever had the pleasure to hear, let alone to be a part of.”
