Now in 2012, with their thirteenth full-length studio album Phantom Antichrist, the legendary German Thrash Metal band continue in the same vein that has kept the last three albums so absolutely vital and deliver more of the same formula that mixes their classic 1980s style with elements of Gothenburg style, an intermittent touch of groove and a few sections with clean vocals over arpeggiated bits in their too for variety.
Each of the albums that follow that aforementioned formula also puts enough of an individual twist on it to have its own identity though, and I guess Phantom Antichrist's twist would be that it isn't just as fast, isn't just as heavy as often and is a lot more focused on the high-end. It's a more melodic and musical take of the Enemy Of God/Hordes Of Chaos musical direction.
Despite the title track leading with speed and low end, there's a lot of time given on the album overall to slow sections, little guitar vibratos, teasing rolls or little sneaky Hi-Hat strikes. If you are all about the Thrash side of things don't worry though, it isn't as if the band abandoned Thrash, there is a heck of a lot of it in there too. The band did a clever job of balancing mixing things up with keeping what was working well.
I have nothing but praise for this album, on first listen it already gave off "Album Of The Year Candidate" feelings and still grew on me with each subsequent spin.Read more ›
If i compare each of the big fours current albums then this pishes all over them, dont get me wrong, i like pretty much all of the big fours last releases but this kills them all.
This is awe inducing, tear inducing, shivers up my spine ripping, stunning, and then stunning some more.
This is catchy, brilliantly written and just a thrash feast of the highest order. I implore anyone who says thrash is their thing to throw this into their cd player because you will be hooked.
This is my album of the year so far,get this.
However Phantom Antichrist thrown me to the floor and I still can't stand up.
This album is one of the best things I have heard recently. I will not do a review for each track, you can do it on your own.
However I would recommend purchase of it to every headbanger out there, you won't be dissapointed.
Nothing more to say, I am going to listen to it again :)
Back in the halcyon heyday of thrash metal in the 1980s there were two distinct epicentres of the genre; America and Germany. As a spotty oik of a teenager during those years I found myself drawn to the American movement much more so than the German. I found it more melodic and accessible than its European counterpart. The Germans had a harsher, darker sound, more akin to Venom and the blossoming Black/Death Metal scene.
The Yanks had the Big Four and the Germans conversely had the Big Three (Kreator, Sodom and Destruction) and Kreator were their Metallica, kings of the Teutonic Thrash hill. As I said I was much more in favour of the American style but no self-respecting thrasher in those days was without a copy of Pleasure To Kill, Kreator's 1987 masterpiece.
25 years down the line and Kreator show no sign of letting up or mellowing into old age. Phantom Antichrist does not possess the raw, abrasive sound of those early albums and neither should it. They were 17 years old when they recorded Endless Pain for Christ's sake, and no-one knew what a thrash album was even supposed to sound like at that time.
That's not to say their sound has softened in any way, the punishing riff refrain towards the end of the album's self-titled opener should be enough to convince anyone of that, if it hasn't ripped your face clean off in the process. It is merely that this album has a more polished, experienced feel to it.Read more ›
