Kreator have been around since 1985 & were probably recognised (along with Celtic Frost) as flag bearers for European Thrash when it exploded into mainstream life during the second half of the 80's. Thanks to a fabulously loyal home support in Germany they survived the (proverbial) extinction of thrash when it was eaten alive by Death Metal. As the 90's wore on they released some excellent (but largely overlooked) albums, but now seem to be at last gaining some sort of recognistion for their fantatstic lifelong acheivements. Make no mistake, Kreator are the best pure thrash band Europe has ever produced.
Enemy of God is touted as Kreator's best offering since "Coma of Souls" and is certainly on a par with anything they've released to date. They have always been heavily influenced by Slayer, but are far to talented to be derided as just clones. Slayer influences are apparent all over this record but the melodic apporach which appeared in "Violent Revolution" is even more prevalent here and gives "EOG" much more depth than one might expect. The production is crisp, concise and most important of all, pulsing with energy. Songs like "World Anarchy," "Voices of the Dead," "When Death Takes its Dominion" and the skull crushing title track are textbook examples of how thrash should be played: Brutal, down tuned riffs, precision drumming (courtesy of the superb Ventor), beautifully textured harmonies and guitar shreds galore!
Onca again, the hugely underrated Mille Petrozza has fronted an awsome Kreator album that is well worthy of the acclaim it is beginning to generate. Why not find out why and add it to your collection.

This CD from German band Kreator is everything you'd expect from one of the best metal bands in the world. It is very heavy, but melodic too, the song writing is up to main-man Mille Petrozas' usual high standards, and picks up where the previous album Violent Revolution left off. I'd say this CD though has a bit more of an edge over the last one, and it just blows you away at times. My favourite songs, if I had to choose, are the title track 'Enemy of God', 'Impossible Brutallity' (which is similar to 'Violent Revolution' or the earlier 'People of the Lie' in that it's mid-paced and very catchy!), the slightly disturbing 'Murder Fantasies', and the catchy but powerful 'Under a Total Blackened Sky'. If you are a Kreator fan and like their other releases then this CD must join your collection! Even if you've never heard of Kreator, but love metal (true metal, not pseudo 'nu' metal garbage) then you'll love this album!

Having been a kreator fan since the eighties I have to say this has to be one of my favourites. Mille and crew have recorded a an awesome modern thrash masterpiece with brilliant production by Andy Sneap as usual. A must for any kreator fan.

German Thrash Metal band Kreator have really been on a high since releasing their Violent Revolution album in 2001. The band forged a new direction by combining a return to roots Thrash Metal sound with hints of Gothenburg, Melodeath and even Metalcore incorporated into the overall style.

2005's Enemy Of God was the second album in this new style, the band were refreshed and recharged musically and put out a brilliant quality album with hundred's of riffs, mixing high speeds, grooves and occasional dark melodic moments with dual guitar harmonies. The overall production quality is fantastic; the sound is heavy, clear and crisp.

The band themselves are on top form, with longtime members Mille and Jurgen put down great performances on their respective instruments as well as vocally. Kreator have had a few line up changes in their career but Enemy Of God sees a stable line-up enter the studio; Christian, has been with the band since 1995's Cause For Conflict album and Finnish guitarist Sami Yli-Sirniö joined on the band's previous album Violent Revolution.

Standout tracks include `Dystopia' and `Dying Race Apocalypse,' which are among the finest the band have yet to release. The overall quality of the album never really dips at all however; Enemy Of God is absolutely solid from beginning to end and doesn't have any filler or weak material to speak of.

In summary; Kreator no longer have to live in the shadow of their 1980's heyday, the band are producing relevant and important music now, still pushing boundaries and releasing top quality albums. Enemy Of God is a strong and impressive album that is really worth giving a go, especially if you enjoyed either Violent Revolution or their career highlight Hordes Of Chaos.

Ah, Kreator! One of the finest thrash bands to stalk the worlds stages. "Enemy Of God", their 11th studio album came out in 2005 and saw the band, once again, being hailed as the metal titans of yore.

Naturally, with a UK tour scheduled alongside Celtic Frost, it's been dusted down, tarted up and been rereleased as a CD / DVD hoohah. And rather splendid it is too. You are, of course, all familiar with the album (well, you are, aren't you?). But what is there to tempt you to part with your hard earned, over and above the original album.

Well, the meat in the sandwich is their entire Wacken 2005 set. Oh, yes. I still get a thrill when "Pleasure To Kill" kicks in, and the years just fall away. For some arty farty reason it's been filmed in green light but I'm delighted to say that Kreator still slay. "Flag Of Hate", in particular, completely shreds.

Heading off into the extras section you get 3 clips from the German Rockpalast TV show in 2005 - "Renewal", "Reconquering The Throne" and "Servant In Heaven - "King In Hell", with the latter the highlight. Can you imagine Jools Holland ever having them on. Thought not. There are also 4 video clips which you probably missed over on Kerrap! TV. Add in 2 bonus live tracks recorded in Korea - "Toxic Trace" and "Coma Of Souls", and the whole of the "Enemy Of God" album in summat called 5.1 DTS 96/24 mix. If I hadn't spent several decades with my head stuck in Motorheads bass bins, I'd probably ooze praise. But, regardless of my hearing defects, this is still a mighty impressive release.
