Their début album Endless Pain came out in 1985 and was an instant hit with metalheads, and it's one of the albums that is constantly hailed as a major influence by subsequent generations of bands. The follow-up, 1986's Pleasure To Kill, is even better. Kreator broke all the speed limits as they thrashed their way through classic after classic, with "Flag Of Hate" hailed as a metal anthem.
Their final indie album of the eighties, Terrible Certainty continued their momentum and saw the major labels sniffing round, with Epic Records signing them for the LA recorded Extreme Aggression, complete with a big name producer in Randy Burns, MTV videos and US tours. However, as with many metal bands, signing to a major saw the first cracks in the Kreator story. With a new guitarist in tow, "Coma Of Souls" saw the critics knives sharpening.
In response, Kreator threw their toys out of the pram as they responded with a series of experimental releases that saw them dipping their toes into industrial metal, goth rock, and the just plain weird, on albums like Renewal and Endorama. There were more line up changes, leaving vocalist / guitarist Petrozza as the sole original band member, and it seemed as though there days were numbered as Epic dropped them, and they headed back to indie land.
But then the 21st century arrived, along with a new guitarist, Sami Yli-Sirniö, and suddenly Kreator returned.Read more ›
But! But! This is just incredible! Its all new Kreator but its still unmistakeably Kreator. Mille's bark is as fierce as it ever was. The riffs are razor sharp and Ventors pounding rhthyms are on top thumping form. Its the songs though. The songs are just so damn metal. And catchy to boot.
Hordes of Chaos the song is probably now my favourite Kreator song and I long for them to come to the UK just so I can mosh and sing along to it. Warcurse is reminiscent of Slayer, of course haha, and its just as face melting as their best works. Escalation is a breakneck thrasher, Amok Run starts as an eerie gothy ballad and just erupts, Destroy What Destroys You a catchy chugger and it just goes on and on!! A barnstorming thrash album for the 2000s'. Should be massive!!!! Cant wait to hear what they come out with next year!!!
Also a nice digipack this with fairly brief but worthwhile DVD extras.
LONG LIVE KREATOR \m/

Combining a return to roots Thrash Sound with hints of Gothenburg and the odd trace of Metalcore Kreator hit out with riff after riff of breakneck speeds, pounding grooves and dreamy melodic moments, with dual guitar harmonies that'd put Iron Maiden to shame giving way to all out Thrash metal riffing with catchy double kick drum patterns underneath at a moment's notice.
The sound is ferocious, heavy at all the right places, clear and crisp when necessary and Mille's voice sounds the best it ever has. Combine this with amazingly catchy choruses like those of title track `Hordes of Chaos,' or `Radical Resistance,' and Kreator are really on to a winner.
Standout tracks like `Amok Run,' and `To The Afterborn,' rival classic era tracks in terms of quality and even outdo them in a number of areas.
`Hordes of Chaos,' feels important, it doesn't feel like just another album, I can easily see people listening to it ten years from and now calling it a classic. It may be a much overused expression but I honestly believe that `Hordes of Chaos,' is genuinely the best thing the band have released since their 1980's heyday.
The special edition comes in a very elaborate fold out package with a DVD which goes into the background of the album, its not exactly essential stuff but its nowhere near the worst making of DVD I've ever seen.
The album is a mix of the old with some modern production work which has a live feel to the songs which brings out the best from them especially on "Hordes of Chaos" and my favourite "Warcurse" which is hurtled along at such speed by the evergreen vocals of "Millie Petrozza" it feels as if you where falling down a bottomless pit without even time to catch some much needed breath!
This album is in a class of its own which shows why they are part of the famous, infamous thrash triumvirate of SODOM and DESTRUCTION since there are other songs apart from just the two to enjoy banging your arthritic hit neck and head to especially on the pounding "Radical Resistance" and "Absolute Misanthropy" and "To The Afterborn" whilst short instrumental leads into a riff frontal assault on "Demon Prince".
This may not get them the same appraisal they earned for their legendary pleasure to kill album but all in all this album shows that you could never teach an old dog new tricks that it already knows!
