‘Pleasure to Kill’ is a 2017 music video directed by Dariusz Szermanowicz and Rafal Szermanowicz for German thrash metal band Kreator.
The new promo video has been filmed in celebration of the upcoming re-release of their first four Kreator albums: Endless Pain, Pleasure to Kill, Terrible Certainty and Extreme Aggression.
Founding guitarist/frontman Mille Petrozza commented:
I came up with the idea to add a trashy storyline that captures the vibe of the year 1986, when Pleasure to Kill was recorded. The album concept was loosely based on a fake documentary called Faces of Death, and everyone in the band was a big fan of early slasher movies made by directors like Herschell Gordon Lewis, Lucio Fulci, and Tobe Hooper.
This is our tribute to the glorious times of that genre. Don’t take this video too serious—no hidden message on a metaphorical level here! We have kept this very simple and the idea is, to take you back on a trip to the eighties to celebrate the re-release of our first four albums.”
