Format: Audio CD
Kreator are one of the Big Three of German thrash metal. Alongside Sodom and Destruction they've flown the flag high ever since forming way back in 1982. Their early demos saw them getting signed by legendary genre label Noise, and under the stewardship of founder member Mille Petrozza, they've been pounding away ever since.

Their début album Endless Pain came out in 1985 and was an instant hit with metalheads, and it's one of the albums that is constantly hailed as a major influence by subsequent generations of bands. The follow-up, 1986's Pleasure To Kill, is even better. Kreator broke all the speed limits as they thrashed their way through classic after classic, with "Flag Of Hate" hailed as a metal anthem.

Their final indie album of the eighties, Terrible Certainty continued their momentum and saw the major labels sniffing round, with Epic Records signing them for the LA recorded Extreme Aggression, complete with a big name producer in Randy Burns, MTV videos and US tours. However, as with many metal bands, signing to a major saw the first cracks in the Kreator story. With a new guitarist in tow, "Coma Of Souls" saw the critics knives sharpening.

In response, Kreator threw their toys out of the pram as they responded with a series of experimental releases that saw them dipping their toes into industrial metal, goth rock, and the just plain weird, on albums like Renewal and Endorama. There were more line up changes, leaving vocalist / guitarist Petrozza as the sole original band member, and it seemed as though there days were numbered as Epic dropped them, and they headed back to indie land.

But then the 21st century arrived, along with a new guitarist, Sami Yli-Sirniö, and suddenly Kreator returned.

Format: Audio CD
Kreator have really outdone themselves this time, with `Hordes of Chaos,' the German Thrash legends have taken everything that made `Violent Revolution,' and `Enemy of God,' so good, and put it together to form one of the best metal albums of the decade.
Combining a return to roots Thrash Sound with hints of Gothenburg and the odd trace of Metalcore Kreator hit out with riff after riff of breakneck speeds, pounding grooves and dreamy melodic moments, with dual guitar harmonies that'd put Iron Maiden to shame giving way to all out Thrash metal riffing with catchy double kick drum patterns underneath at a moment's notice.
The sound is ferocious, heavy at all the right places, clear and crisp when necessary and Mille's voice sounds the best it ever has. Combine this with amazingly catchy choruses like those of title track `Hordes of Chaos,' or `Radical Resistance,' and Kreator are really on to a winner.
Standout tracks like `Amok Run,' and `To The Afterborn,' rival classic era tracks in terms of quality and even outdo them in a number of areas.
`Hordes of Chaos,' feels important, it doesn't feel like just another album, I can easily see people listening to it ten years from and now calling it a classic. It may be a much overused expression but I honestly believe that `Hordes of Chaos,' is genuinely the best thing the band have released since their 1980's heyday.
The special edition comes in a very elaborate fold out package with a DVD which goes into the background of the album, its not exactly essential stuff but its nowhere near the worst making of DVD I've ever seen.

Format: Audio CD
Of course Thras bands since the dawn of time will never better their earlier output that have earned them a vast thrash following but since the genre has undergone somthing of a "mini" re-birth that has spawned an assembly line of bands like SSS, Gama Bomb, Bonded By Blood and Toxic Holocaust that have worn their influences on their sleeves with their own take on speed metal its bound to get the old guard a little twitchy and come out with somthing to prove to these young whipper snappers especially Kreator and their latest offering Hordes of Chaos.

The album is a mix of the old with some modern production work which has a live feel to the songs which brings out the best from them especially on "Hordes of Chaos" and my favourite "Warcurse" which is hurtled along at such speed by the evergreen vocals of "Millie Petrozza" it feels as if you where falling down a bottomless pit without even time to catch some much needed breath!

This album is in a class of its own which shows why they are part of the famous, infamous thrash triumvirate of SODOM and DESTRUCTION since there are other songs apart from just the two to enjoy banging your arthritic hit neck and head to especially on the pounding "Radical Resistance" and "Absolute Misanthropy" and "To The Afterborn" whilst short instrumental leads into a riff frontal assault on "Demon Prince".

This may not get them the same appraisal they earned for their legendary pleasure to kill album but all in all this album shows that you could never teach an old dog new tricks that it already knows!

This is an excellent album. Get it. I first heard Kreator in the late 1980s - there was something unique to their sound even at a time when thrash and speed was seeping from both sides of the Atlantic and from Germany. When I heard their 'Hordes of Chaos' on their website (check it: it's still there), I was blown away. They still have that edge over other bands. As fast and furious as ever, but the sound quality was oh so clear, sharp and piercing. I like the melodic bits that they have incorporated over the years - it gives character and an added dimension to what could have remained a brainless bash. 'War Curse' is another paranoid track on this album. 'Amok Run' and 'Demon Prince' also stand out in a truly outstanding album. Get it now!
