The Peak of Kreators' Thrashings,
This review is from: Coma Of Souls (Audio CD)
For me this is Kreators finest moment and a confirmation of everything they had promised from the beginning. I was excited to see how they would follow "Extreme Aggression" and I was not disappointed. So highly do I rate this album I actually believe it to be a thrash metal masterpiece and arguably belongs in the company of "Master of Puppets", "Rust in Peace", "Reign in Blood" and their countrymen Helloweens' "Keeper of the Seven Keys part II" as one of the finest examples of fast, heavy, melodic metal from back in the day.
From the opening acoustic strains of "When the Sun Burns Red" its just one classic thrash metal tune after another. Highlights being the already mentioned album opener, the title track, People of the Lie, Terrorzone and Material World Paranoia.
I remember going to see Kreator in a tiny venue on the tour for this record and they were simply ferocious. Got my copy of "Coma" signed and had a blast. Long since lost the record but this was a must buy on CD.
