Outcast is the eighth studio album by German thrash metal band Kreator. It was released by G.U.N. Records in 1997. This album featured more gothic rock and industrial influences than earlier Kreator, retaining little of the thrash metal from previous years.

First pressings of this CD in the USA, released by F.A.D. records in 1997, had errors on certain music tracks where an unknown song bled through during playback. F.A.D. recalled the discs and printed an updated edition later in 1997 that corrected this error. During that time, people who purchased the CD could also send in the faulty disc and receive an updated disc.

Many editions of the Noise/Sanctuary Records re-issue has a factory error with the artwork. The printing on the back insert behind the disc contains the same artwork as the insert for Kreator's album Cause for Conflict.
