Frédéric Leclercq of KREATOR interview on Hate Über Alles and Touring 2022
Updated: Nov 4, 2022
First, I'd like to start by saying it was an honor and pleasure interviewing Frederic Leclercq. He's a genuine down-to-earth person I'd love to talk to again. I'd also like to say this is my first interview ever. Something I've always wanted to venture into and I got an amazing opportunity.
Phoenix, Arizona 10|27|2022 I arrived at the Arizona Financial Theatre to interview Frédéric Leclercq of KREATOR on their new album, "Hate Über Alles" and a little bit about touring life. I met up with Fred by their touring bus and he offered to do the interview on the bus, which couldn't have been any more exciting for me and I gladly agreed. I set up my recording device, sat on the couch across from him, and let him know I was ready to get into it.
As we sat down Fred wanted to show me a new record, Antichrist by Gorgoroth he'd just purchased. Then he asked me if I'd ever heard of them. I replied "yes, but I've never listened to them before" and he replied "Black metal from Norway! Get your shit together, man!" Jokingly and we both laughed about my ignorance. A little something I didn't quite get on film and found humorous and wanted to share. After we started talking I noticed the LED lights were messing with the recording, so I switched to my phone as a last-second correction.

I'd like to thank Nuclear Blast Records for giving me this opportunity and Fred Leclercq for being an awesome guy. Check out Kreator's newest album "Hate Über Alles" available NOW!
