Enemy of God

Rated 4.4/5 (88%) (80 Votes)

"Enemy of God" follows in the same path as 2001's "Violent Revolution" (it's been that long already?) So if you were expecting Endless Pain, Pleasure to Kill or... er.. even Endorama: Tough luck. The first thing I noticed here is that why the album is good from beginning to end, it doesn't leave such a lasting impression as "Violent Revolution" did. V.R. had a few very catchy songs that are still stuck in my head even though I haven't listened to it in months. "Enemy of God" on the other hand cuts on the melody and catchiness and cranks the aggression a notch, especially in the guitar riffs which have the mid-80s razor-sharp edge to them - a welcome return in my opinion. That said, this is still much closer to "Violent Revolution" than to their earlier albums, so don't get too excited either. A couple of songs here could well have been on their 2001 opus and some of the guitar work has the more "modern" sound, which can be difficult to stomach at times, although Kreator do a good job mixing it with good effect with the more "classic" sound. What you get here is Kreator as you know it: A bit on the predictable side, but a bus load of thrashtastic riffs that'll get you headbanging and air-guitaring in no time. Mille's vocals are quite similar to his work on the previous album as well, with a couple of very short passages where he uses cleaner vocals. So, in short, if you liked "Violent Revolution", you should like this as well. Another good one from these German thrashmasters.
