One of the biggest and most influential thrash metal bands visited a small island in the Mediterranean Sea where metal events by renown artists do not take place very often. That band was Kreator. They brought their show and unique metal style to the Pavilion Hall in Nicosia, Cyprus on 29th August 2015 and our photographer Eirni Kleanthous was there to witness the action as it took place.
The gig was opened by local death metal act Vomitile, who warmed up the audience with infectious tracks such as “Necropound”, “Warcult” or “Mastering the Art of Killing”. Straight after them the legends themselves, Kreator, brought down the venue with a string of hits such as “Violent Revolution”, “Phobia” and the one and only “Flag of Hate”. This was the band’s first ever performance on the island but it definitely won’t be forgotten very easily.
