Customer Reviews


Another classic thrash album from the Teutonic legends. This is a fresh breath of air , after 'Enemy of God', one of the essential thrash releases of 2009.


absolutely amazing, if you are a fan of kreator, this album is everything you would expect. highlights include "war curse" and "radical resistance". this album has no fillers, after a few listens you realise that every song here is well written and played. definitely one of the best thrash albums out of the past few years

Hordes of Chaos

Kreator have really outdone themselves this time, with `Hordes of Chaos,’ the German Thrash legends have taken everything that made `Violent Revolution,’ and `Enemy of God,’ so good, and put it together to form one of the best metal albums of the decade.
Combining a return to roots Thrash Sound with hints of Gothenburg and the odd trace of Metalcore Kreator hit out with riff after riff of breakneck speeds, pounding grooves and dreamy melodic moments, with dual guitar harmonies that’d put Iron Maiden to shame giving way to all out Thrash metal riffing with catchy double kick drum patterns underneath at a moment’s notice.
The sound is ferocious, heavy at all the right places, clear and crisp when necessary and Mille’s voice sounds the best it ever has. Combine this with amazingly catchy choruses like those of title track `Hordes of Chaos,’ or `Radical Resistance,’ and Kreator are really on to a winner.
Standout tracks like `Amok Run,’ and `To The Afterborn,’ rival classic era tracks in terms of quality and even outdo them in a number of areas.
`Hordes of Chaos,’ feels important, it doesn’t feel like just another album, I can easily see people listening to it ten years from and now calling it a classic. It may be a much overused expression but I honestly believe that `Hordes of Chaos,’ is genuinely the best thing the band have released since their 1980′s heyday.

Arguably the most influential and successful European thrash metal band ever, Germany's Kreator are also by far the most enduring. Like many of their European speed metal brethren, Kreator fused Metallica's thrash innovations with Venom's proto-black metal imagery, sparked it with Motörhead's balls-out velocity, and capped it off with the nihilistic outlook typical of heavy metal since the seminal days of Black Sabbath. Kreator's career also mirrored speed metal's rising and waning fortunes: building...
