Kreator have been on a real upward trajectory artistically speaking for the last decade or so. Since 2001's superb Violent Revolution album and the establishment of their current line-up, everything that the band have put out has been of the utmost quality, keeping to a fairly strict but non-intrusive formula and just knocking out a boatload of brilliant songs.

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.

Where are kreator on the grand scale of things, we have the big four which is fair enough, then we have overkill, exodus, testament, yikes, there are alot , kreator havent always released 5 star albums , but this was one shock to the system, this is flawless.
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.

Having pounded the absolute life out of my Hordes of Chaos cd I was fit to be locked up when I found out Kreator were about to release Phantom Antichrist, and having listened to it now non stop for 3 weeks I have done the proper and just thing and awarded it the 5 stars, the musicianship is unbelievably good, the song writing is a new level for Kreator with all the little melodies entwined into the bones of thrash songs, yes it really is quite brilliant, my problem is its just not Hordes of Chaos, there is no War Curse on this CD or Amok run, what i mean by that is songs that come on and you freak, im a married man with 3 kids so i mostly listen to my cds driving, it is beyond me how i havent crashed or been caught speeding or just ran over somebody for looking like a Zombie when War Curse comes on, no songs on Phantom Antichrist give me that feeling with the possible exception of Civilization collapse, it threatens to but the riffs are cut to short, I agree with all the other excellent reviews here that Phantom Antichrist is a classical CD, but the savagery is somewhat gone.

As a heavy metal fan for whole of my life I have listened to all Kreator's albums. Some of them should be forgotten, some of them are a milestones in history of heavy music.

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 :)

This month sees the release of Phantom Antichrist, the latest album from German thrash legends Kreator. It is their thirteenth studio album to date, their first on Nuclear Blast Records, and it is very possibly the best album of their career, and yes that does include Pleasure To Kill.

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.
