Review


I was apprehensive when I first got this album since although I liked their last album "Endorama" I still preferred their more aggressive earlier years. After putting this in to the CD player and pressing play I can honestly say the first track sums up exactly what Kreator have accomplished with this album. The first track is entitled "Reconquering the Throne" and after having my ass kicked for the next 56 minutes and 43 seconds I completely agree with that assessment, Kreator have indeed reconquered the throne…:)

This album is back to the aggressive hard driving thrash metal Kreator was known for but with a little more maturity. Although this is unadulterated, kick your teeth in thrash metal they have not completely ignored the technicality and melody they picked up through albums like "Coma of Souls" and "Outcast". I am not saying this is another album in the same vein since this reminds me more of their first three albums than their latter three but if you were to take the best elements of all their albums and put them into one album this would be it. In my humble opinion this is the best Kreator album I have ever had the good fortune of listening to. Everything about this album is absolutely top notch from the excellent riffs to the killer leads. Add to this some of the best songs they have ever written and I can honestly say this is a thrash metal masterpiece and an instant classic.

Overall I would say if you don't get this album you will seriously be missing out on one of the best releases of the year and a return to form of one of the best thrash metal bands of all time in Kreator.
