Heaven Shall Burn
Miland "Mille" Petrozza (born 18 December 1967) is a German (of Italian from Calabria descent) guitarist and singer. He is best known for being the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the band Kreator (which he started playing in as Tyrant in 1982 and renamed into Tormentor in 1984). He is also the principal songwriter of the band.
He appeared on Edguy's 2004 album, Hellfire Club, providing lead vocals on an alternate version of the album's opening song, "Mysteria", featured as a bonus track to the album. He also appeared on Caliban's 2006 album, The Undying Darkness, on "Moment of Clarity". Also, he acts as himself in the "IchGott"-videoclip of "Honigdieb".
He also appeared on the 2010 Volbeat album Beyond Hell/Above Heaven on the track titled "7 Shots". Petrozza and drummer Stefan Schwarzmann played for the recording of the 2012 album Revolution by Lacrimosa.
Petrozza has an extensive collection of guitars, but he used Jackson live, mainly the KV2 and the Jackson Randy Rhoads models. In the mid-1980s he used a B.C. Rich Mockingbird, which shared physical similarities to the model Kerry King of Slayer played at the same time. He also had a signature X Series Jackson, the "Mille Phobia" King V, which was a limited edition made exclusively for the European Market. As of 2016, Petrozza began using ESP guitars. He has his own line of signature series LTD called the MK-600. He uses ENGL amps.
