A Kreative Kreator,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Phantom Antichrist [Limited Cd+dvd] (Audio CD)
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.
