Das ist jetzt ein bisschen überraschend reingekommen. Frédéric Leclercq, vor rund einem Monat bei Dragonforce ausgestiegen, bedient ab sofort den Viersaiter bei der deutschen Thrashlegende Kreator. Er ersetzt dort Christian “Speesy” Giesler, der über die letzten 25 Jahre bei Kreator am Bass stand. Mille Petrozza meint dazu:

“Firstly, we would like to say thank you to Speesy for his time in KREATOR over the last 25 years. We have accomplished so much, and I sincerely wish him the best in his future! A new chapter for KREATOR beckons; Bienvenu Frédéric Leclercq! Fred represents a new focus and hunger within KREATOR and we’re extremely excited to have him a part of the KREATOR family. Not only is he an exceptional musician but a great human being which made the decision to have him join the band very easy! We begin in Chile and continue on to some explosive years ahead!”
