Review Summary: In what world...

...is this considered to be a top class metal act that consistently release great albums, with Pleasure To Kill being elevated as the best of the bunch. Just HOW can such a travesty of a thrash band appear to be the best in the business? Well, Kreator supposedly are. Now, let me get the bias out in the open, I am no Kreator hater, i give every band a fair chance, but my good Lord, this was going too far. To consider this a sacred cow of thrash metal... Pah.

The music on this release is close to being utterly terrible. It sounds like a bunch of sweaty monkey men decided to go into their garage and just jam for an entire album. Literally, it is just a jam session start to finish, being overly fast, and with the rough recording sound of a hippopotomus being brutally raped and tortured by a thousand angry ducks, pecked to death. This sounds like a demo tape through and through, and does not deserve purchase.

The Songs

Choir Of The Damned-The intro track is the only one with any melody, and is a good track, by far the best on here. I love this intro.
Ripping Corpse-This song is an abomination that spawned an even worse style of music, the death metal scene. This is where the "too fast syndrome" kicks in and goes into overdrive, being pointless gore lyrics.
Death Is Your Saviour-The worst song on the album, Jurgen takes the vocals on here and literally the chorus is just pointless. It is just Mille and Blackfire playing what they want to play, Jurgen slamming away and then grunting over the top of it.
Pleasure To Kill-The title track is a slight cut above the rest, with a memorable middle section and an ultra low distorted growl of the words Pleasure To Kill.
Riot Of Violence-A slower song that no doubt spawned groove acts like Pantera, this is another slightly more memorable one.
The Pestilence-The epic of the album, this clocks in at 7 minutes and is way too boring to last that long. A terrible song, the riffs are uninteresting, the vocals poor, and the drums appauling.
Carrion-The worst song the band ever wrote. Hands down.
Command Of The Blade-The closing song is another one that just suffers from being too long.

The drum sound is what kills this album completely, with appauling tin can production reminiscent of St. Anger, only just worse. This is utterly terrible.

This album has no merits that would make a purchase necessary. Dont buy this album. Simple as.

The guilty party are as follows:
Mille Petrozza, guitar, vocals
Jurgen Reil, Drums, vocals
Blackfire, guitars
And various session musicians for bass guitar.

Review told me practically nothing about this band, other than that they play fast thrash metal and influenced the death metal scene by playing even faster. Go away alts you make me sad ;_;

"Just HOW can such a travesty of a thrash band"

Oh please, there are so many more worse bands from the same genre, and few better ones. In my honest opinion Kreator are one of the leaders of the Thrash Metal movement at the moment.

As for the review, whilst I agree that this isn't the band's best album, you certainly did not make your point properly. It was TBT as well, which doesn't help, and it certainly didn't help when your descriptions of each track were a mere 10-20 words long. I can handle seeing first reviews fail on a few things, but this seriously takes the fucking cake.
