Review Summary: CHAOS.

The Rise & Fall of Thrash Metal: Part the Second – Smaller Fry

Part III: Kreator ~ Pleasure to Kill

*Also Part II of the Unholy Thrash Trinity

Pleasure to Kill’s Kreator was:

- Miland Petrozza ~ Guitar, Vocals
- Jürgen "Ventor" Reil ~ Drums, Vocals
- Rob Fioretti ~ Bass Guitar
- Jörg Trzebiatowski ~ Guitar

Imagine chaos. Utter, complete, devastating chaos. Imagine destruction and doom, murder and death. Now take that to a musical thought pattern. Think chaos in every instrument. Chaotic guitars, chaotic double-bass drums, chaotic raspy vocal shouts. There is no structure, there is only a ravaging mess of riffs, connected by nothing but other messes of riffs. Nothing can hold this music back, nothing can. This musical experience will grab you by the neck, slash you into little pieces, rip your guts out and torture you to death. Because yes, this music is the prime influence for the infamous death metal genre. It is fierce, it is unforgiving, and it doesn’t stop for almost 40 minutes. You’ll have a difficult time orientating yourself in this bloody mess, because it doesn’t really go anywhere, and it doesn’t really mean to. That’s the good thing about a mess, isn’t it? It’s four Germans, and two even shout at you with their destructive vocal styles, layered with a charismatic thick accent. Because they have come to get you, and the definitely will. No bullocks here, oh no. This is Ze Germans, and Bullocks is not in their dictionary. Sure as hell you can’t hear what they’re trying to convey, and you get the feeling they’re not even trying to. It’s just chaos, remember, just chaos in a form so chaotic even the most structurous of humankind won’t be able to find front or back. Just continue imagining that. Add some possible pictures in your mind. Not pretty, eh? No, they won’t be pretty at all, because diese Deutschers are not known to be pretty, now are they? This musical experience you are now imagining, it surely must be one of the most brütal ones you’ve ever had. Now you must decide if this is actually likeable. If you can learn to appreciate chaos and destruction, certainly you would identify with this music, you would think it was great, wouldn’t you? If you want to take a further step, read on.

What if this experience is not just imaginary, what if it were real? What would it sound like?

It would sound like Pleasure to Kill.

it's definitely different. Haven't heard the album so I don't know wheather or not this describes the album perfectly but I will give you a pos as you did something differently and pretty much came away with it. And yeah it does ive me a good example of what the album sounds like - mean, chaotic thrash.

Nagrarok is right in that this album is chaotic beyond description. I prefer coma of souls and extreme aggression as well, but this is Kreator's most influential album.

I really liked the review, so pos
