KREATOR picture
Kreator is a thrash metal band from Essen, Germany. They originally started under the name Metal Militia, later Tyrant and Tormentor, finally Kreator. Starting their career in 1982, they played Thrash Metal with Venom influences. Their style of music is similar to their compatriots Destruction and Sodom, the other two big teutonic thrash metal bands from Germany. All three of these bands are often credited with helping create death metal.

Kreator's work has been consistently in the vein of pure thrash, with the exception of four albums (Renewal, Cause for Conflict, Outcast and Endorama) during the 1990s when they undertook serious experimentation. Incorporating Industrial, Gothic and Avant-Garde elements into their sound, the results were uneven in some fans' and also critics' eyes.

Kreator formed as Tyrant in 1982 in Essen, Germany. The original lineup featured vocalist/guitarist Mille Petrozza ,who is from serbia, drummer Jurgen 'Ventor' Reil, and bassist Rob Fioretti.

KREATOR Enemy of God

Album · 2005 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Enemy of God" is the 11th full-length studio album by German thrash metal act Kreator. The album was released through Steamhammer/SPV in January 2005. "Violent Revolution (2001)" marked a return to a more "straight" thrash metal style for Kreator, who had spend most of the 90s experimenting with their sound. It turned out to be a career wise move as their popularity again rose to heights they hadn´t experienced for a number of years. Therefore it didn´t come as a surprise that the band milked the album and their new found popularity to the maximum, touring extensively and releasing both a live album and a DVD in 2003 ("Live Kreation") before starting work on a new album...

...and Kreator take no chances on "Enemy of God", which pretty much continues the same melodic oriented thrash metal style of "Violent Revolution (2001)". A music style with strong ties to their 1990 album "Coma of Souls". So in many ways "Enemy of God" is the sibling album to "Violent Revolution (2001)", and those who enjoyed the latter will pretty surely appreciate the former too. Stylistically the music is thrash metal with a great melodic sensibility which occassionally touches melodeath territory, but always sounds unmistakably like Kreator. The beat is steady mid- to fast-paced, the riffs are solid, the guitar solos/harmonies are well played and melodic, and Mille Petrozza sounds pretty much as raw and aggressive as ever. He does spice up his vocal performance with more melodic tinged parts than he did on the "classic" 80s albums though, and "Enemy of God" generally sounds like a mix of contemporary and more derivative influences.

Like it´s predecessor, "Enemy of God" features a powerful and detailed Andy Sneap production, which suits the music well. The 12 tracks on the 55:48 minutes long album are all well written, but it´s hard not to notice that there´s been virtually no development of sound and style since "Violent Revolution (2001)", and although it´s understandable that Kreator wanted to ride the wave of success which was initiated with that album, I can´t help feel that "Enemy of God" isn´t an album which exists on it´s own premise. It simply feels a bit formulaic and written this particular way because Kreator knew that this was the sound the fans wanted and expected from them. When that is said it´s still another high quality release by Kreator and a 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.

"Violent Revolution" is the 10th full-length studio album by German thrash metal act Kreator. The album was released through Steamhammer/SPV in September 2001. It´s the successor to "Endorama" from 1999. Starting with "Renewal" from 1992, the 90s were generally a decade where Kreator experimentet with their sound after achieving God like status on the German thrash metal scene of the 80s along with Sodom and Destruction. The experiments with sound and style were not to the satisfaction of all their fans, and it didn´t help much that Kreator followed-up "Renewal (1992)" with three more albums that sounded different from what most fans expected from them, and their profile as one of the most prolific German thrash metal acts began to fade during the decade. They of course achieved artistic satisfaction from their experiments but the majority of their fans turned their thumbs down (Disclaimer: This is a general observation and not necessarily my personal opinion of the 90s albums).

Therefore it was probably a great relief to those fans when "Violent Revolution" came out as it features a musical style that isn´t far from what is heard on albums like "Extreme Aggression (1989)" and "Coma of Souls (1990)". Especially the more sophisticated and melodic oriented thrash metal style of the latter is a valid reference. Featuring a powerful and meaty Andy Sneap production Kreator´s thrash metal style was carried into the new millennium under the best possible conditions.

Since the release of "Endorama (1999)" there´s been one lineup changes as guitarist Tommy Vetterli (Coroner, 69 Chambers) has been replaced by Sami Yli-Sirnio (Waltari, Barren Earth). The usual suspects are Mille Petrozza (vocals, guitars), Christian Giesler (bass), and Jurgen "Ventor" Reil (drums).

The material on the 12 track, 56:43 minutes long album are well written, and while not all tracks stand out equally much, "Violent Revolution" generally is a very entertaining release. The delivery of the music is highly professional and the powerful and detailed production is also a great asset. Solid thrash metal riffs, melodic lead harmonies and well played solos, and Mille Petrozza´s distinct sounding raw vocals on top. Add Ventor´s easily recognisable drumming style to the mix and you got the "classic" sound of Kreator. Just less savage and a bit more sophisticated and melodic than what they sounded like in the late 80s/early 90s.

Highlights include "Reconquering the Throne" (very apt title for the opening track on this particular album), "Servant in Heaven - King in Hell", and the brilliant title track. The 7:34 minutes long "Replicas of Life" is also a standout track to my ears. It features a mellow clean guitar opening with Petrozza singing goth rock type vocals, before the track gets faster and more aggressive thrashy.

So upon conclusion "Violent Revolution" is a welcome thrash metal comeback for Kreator (although it´s a more mature form of thrash than what they played in the 80s). They are arguably very good at both writing and playing this style of music, and although a few more experiments and a bit more variation between tracks could have made the album more interesting and a little less derivative of their past glories, "Violent Revolution" is a high quality release through and through and a 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.

While many old school thrash metal bands are having a hard time keeping their old school flames a-burning, certain bands sound like they never had it blow out in the first place. While the big four of thrash metal: Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer may be around well into the 21st century, they are quite inconsistent in their abilities and commitment to pumping out a quality product that sounds as passionate as what they released in their 1980s heyday. That doesn’t seem to be the case for the leader of the “Big Teutonic Four” namely KREATOR who debuted all the way back in 1985 and has maintained a steady stream of quality thrash metal releases even if they at times took the liberty of straying into goth or whatever they chose to confront. However beginning with 2001’s “Violent Revolution,” the band has released a few stellar high quality thrash metal albums that although less raw and more melodic than their 80s origins, still pack a powerful punch and retain the passion that cast them as one of Germany’s most highly regarded thrash metal acts of the ages.

GODS OF VIOLENCE, the band’s 14th studio album may pick right up where the predecessor “Phantom Antichrist” left off in compositional style and recognizable musical delivery but KREATOR continues well into the 21st century with a passion for their craft that is as admirable as the first phase of their thrash metal career only perhaps a bit more fine-tuned for modern day production and hybridization with a more melodic molding that actually puts them in the same camp as modern day melodic death metal bands like Amon Amarth and Arch Enemy. The band as usual is led by the thrash metal vocal style of Mille Petrozza offering his dual guitar assault with Sami Yli-Sirniö on GODS OF VIOLENCE as is the familiar frenetic drum assault of Jürgen ‘Ventor’ Reil in cahoots with Christian Giesler’s bass talents. While the filthy metal distortion and early thrash metal feel is in full effect, the mixing and production skills of the Jens Bogren, Ted Jensesn and Johan Örnborg team offer the most pleasant modern recording processes of any extreme metal album of modern times.

Like many old school thrash bands that are like cockroaches and refuse to go away, KREATOR continues to capture newer audiences with their fierce no nonsense approach to furiously well-crafted old school thrash metal. While the originality factor has clearly never been KREATOR’s biggest playing card, they do however offer an uncanny string of consistency that never fails to deliver exactly what is expected of them complete with very competent compositions that while having dipped more into the melodic side of metal never ceases to capture the renegade zeitgeist spirit of reckless abandon that KREATOR exhibited from day one when their debut album “Endless Pain” contributed to the overall blueprints of not only the thrash metal scene but also of significant value to the black and death metal scenes as well. Old school thrash bands releasing new albums in the 21st century is very hit and miss for me as there seems to be a fine line between business as usual and adding enough oomf to create a relevant listening after so much evolution in the metal universe.

KREATOR, for me, offers an outstanding retro experience of old school thrash while offering the modern day accoutrements of production and ever so slight evolutionary factors in their own sound. A masterpiece this is not, but a pleasant listening experience while others fail, it is. What really sells me on the continued existence of KREATOR is just how passionate they seem to feel about the music. They never once seem tired and bored with what they are releasing. GODS OF VIOLENCE could easily have been released by a younger band who has a KREATOR worship fetish but in this case it is the band themselves who never let that flame flicker out for even a second. While it is true that the band frightened off fans in the 90s after experimenting with their sound and seem to have found a rather formulaic approach to their music ever since their return to a predictable melodic thrash sound, the fact that they can nail that sound so effortlessly both compositionally and in performance ensures that they will have a loyal following for quite some time. I, for one, am totally on board and eagerly await the hopefully many future releases to come.

KREATOR Coma of Souls

UMUR
"Coma of Souls" is the 5th full-length studio album by German thrash metal act Kreator. The album was released through Noise Records in November 1990. Kreator were at the peak of their popularity at this point, having released the very successful "Extreme Aggression" in 1989 and the equally successful concert video "Live in East Berlin" in early 1990. Since the preceding studio album Frank "Blackfire" Gosdzik has replaced Jörg Trzebiatowski on guitars. "Blackfire" came from a stint with Sodom, and is also featured on the "Live in East Berlin" video. No less than 5 promotional videos were released for tracks featured on "Coma of Souls". Kreator obviously must have been satisfied with the sound production on "Extreme Aggression (1989)", because they opted to record "Coma of Souls" in Los Angeles with producer Randy Burns, which was also the case with the predecessor.

And there are quite a few similarities between the two albums. The way the tracks are constructed and especially the sound productions feature many similarities (although more polished on "Coma of Souls"). "Coma of Souls" is the more sophisticated release and "Extreme Aggression (1989)" is the more raw and aggressive album of the two, but it´s not completely wrong to call them sibling albums.

The music style is aggressive yet melodic thrash metal. The flair for melody had already surfaced on "Extreme Aggression (1989)" albeit in smaller doses than the case is here. The material are generally catchy, relatively easy to understand without being simple, and well written. Tracks like "When the Sun Burns Red", the title track, "People of the Lie" and especially "Terrorzone" stand out as highlights, but "Coma of Souls" is overall a very solid effort by Kreator. The band´s vicious aggressive nature may have been tamed a bit in favor of more melody and sophistication in the arrangements, but "Coma of Souls" is still a relatively aggressive album.

The musicianship are generally on a high level, with some strong solos and riffs being played and some convincing aggressive rabid dog snarling delivered by Miland "Mille" Petrozza. Drummer Jürgen "Ventor" Reil is like an elephant in a glasshouse though. His playing style is so predictable, "stiff" and clumsy, that it´s at times bordering comical. It´s tolerable because the rest of the music is so well played, but he doesn´t add anything positive to the sound.

Despite that little issue "Coma of Souls" is overall a high quality release by Kreator, and while I personally prefer the more savage aggression of "Extreme Aggression (1989)" to the more sophisticated and polished sound of "Coma of Souls", the latter still deserves a 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating.

KREATOR Gods of Violence

UMUR
"Gods of Violence" is the 14th full-length studio album by German thrash metal act Kreator. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in January 2017. It´s the successor to "Phantom Antichrist" from 2012. Kreator are in institution in European thrash metal, and although they had a period in the 90s with a drop in popularity as a consequence of straying maybe a bit too far from the sound many of their fans expected from them, the release of "Violent Revolution" in 2001 signaled a return to their trademark thrash metal sound. Or at least a return to a similar style to what they played in the late 80s/early 90s. Each subsequent album release have continued and slightly expanded on that style of melodic oriented thrash metal.

"Gods of Violence" is no different as it pretty much continues where "Phantom Antichrist (2012)" left off. There are fast-paced thrash metal tracks like "World War Now" and "Totalitarian Terror", but also mid-paced, heavy, and more epic sounding tracks like "Fallen Brother" and "Death Becomes My Light" on the album. Kreator have written 11 tracks, which are all instantly recognisable and quite catchy. While there is generally great focus on razor sharp thrash metal riffs and rhythms, and Mille Petrozza´s piercing raw vocals (he delivers a couple of clean vocal parts on the album too), Kreator also focus a lot on melodic guitar themes and solos (and there are quite a bit of acoustic work on the album too). This is at times very melodic music, and I hear an obvious melodeath influence here and there. Not that the music on "Gods of Violence" is death metal by any means, but there are many similar traits in the way the guitar themes are composed and played.

"Gods of Violence" is a well produced album, featuring a powerful, clear, and detailed sound production, which suits the music perfectly. Kreator are as always a professional and tight playing band too, so upon conclusion "Gods of Violence" is yet another high quality release by the Germans. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

This DVD from the Violent Revolution era captures Kreator at their best as the energetic virtuosos deliver a career spanning set of classic metal, mixing old and new together in a monstrous performance.

The first thing you'll notice is the unusual green filter over the video, and the fact that the show is split between two different venues, with half the songs live from a concert in Spain and half live from a music festival, the change over between shows being filled with short documentary sections with cameos from other Metal bands (usually drunk) and footage of the band getting ready.

If you can get past these facts, you'll find an amazing DVD to enjoy but if you can't stand that sort of thing you'd be better off buying Kreator's 'Live At The Pulse of Kapitulation,' DVD which is one entire concert, without interruptions or strange green filters.

Anyway the performance the band put on is incredible, delivering the songs with feeling and making the music heavy yet very clear. They make the songs from the nineties sound heavier and thrashier and the 80's classics Clearer and more modern sounding creating a even playing field for the material.

The production is pretty decent too, a nice deep kick drum sound, audible bass guitar and sharp chunky guitar sound. Mille is awesome as ever, barking and growling away like its still 1988. The DVD also contains a history section that mixes a very short documentary with all the bands music videos; nothing life changing, but definitely worth the one viewing.

There are also two bonus songs, the classic concert closing duo of 'Flag of Hate,' and 'Tormentor,' Live from With Full Force Festival although the camera work is much better and the visuals are brighter the sound is muddy and unclear so you will probably not bother with them all that often.

The main feature is as good as any metal DVD from the first half of the decade, and pretty much a no-brainer for any Kreator fan; Highlights include the aggressive and technical 'Reconquering The Throne,' and the infectiously catchy 'Violent Revolution,' as well as a storming rendition of the furious 'People of The Lie.' If you're into concert DVDs and into all eras of Kreator this is very much the DVD for you.

Kreator are a very important band in the Thrash Metal story, one of Germany's biggest ever bands and a bone fide classic act for metal overall.

This DVD is a fantastic reissue of the historic Live In East Berlin Concert, (which comes in Cd and DVD form here)with a documentary and an amusing horror video called Hallucinative Comas.

The Tracklisting is amazing, containing all of their classics such as 'Toxic Trace,' 'Flag of Hate,' 'Tormentor,' and 'Pleasure to Kill.'

The Band's performance is energetic and exciting; singer Mille interacts with the crowd on a regular basis. Ventor gets a Drum solo and also performs lead vocals on an excellent rendition of 'Riot of Violence.'

Kreator blast through songs like 'Some Pain Will Last,' 'Awakening of the Gods,' and 'Under The Guillotine,' furiously, performing the technically challenging and incredibly fast material with ease and flair.

Most important is the sound; for such an old concert the sound is amazing, much better than other DVDs of similar era concerts. The material is brilliantly mixed and available in 5.1 or stereo; with clear drums, chunky 'full,' guitar sounds and totally audible vocals.

The documentary is pretty interesting, describing the difficulty East German fans had even getting access to metal music, magazines or t-shirts; how the concert came to be, and the impact it had.

For a Kreator fan this cannot be recommended highly enough, the wonderful sound and excellent tracklisting make this one of the best Thrash Metal DVDs money can buy. If you want to hear music from the 'Terrible Certainty,' or 'Extreme Aggression,' albums played live then this is the DVD for you.
