Thrash Attack

Watch KREATOR's Drummer JÜRGEN "VENTOR" REIL Rip Through "Strongest Of The Strong"

As thunderous with mid-paced material as he can be with chaotic fills and machine gun double kicks.


It's no secret that Kreator's longtime drummer Jürgen "Ventor" Reil is a bloody machine behind the kit. However, if you watch the performance below – courtesy of TAMA Drums Germany – you might end up surprised by how undaunted Ventor looks while tearing through "Strongest Of The Strong", the second single from the band's excellent and most recent studio album, Hate Über Alles.

Kreator is plotting the follow-up to their 2022 record Hate Über Alles, and according to mastermind Mille Petrozza the album should arrive in the beginning of 2026. Nonetheless, new music is not the only thing brewing in the Kreator's camp, as the band seems to also be working on a cinematic documentary that will offer a glimpse into their lives on the road and delve into their rich history.

Kreator will be out on the road with Testament and Possessed this September and October. Tickets are available here.
