KREATOR - Violent Revolution - CD - SPV/Steamhammer

review by: Steppenvvolf

Two bits of news on Kreator: with Violent revolution the band has stylistically returned to the "old" Kreator. The bad news is, that it is exactly the same style.

Pretending as if the album Renewal never existed, Kreator has reverted to the early '90s thrash style that once heaved the band to its cult status. Mille still shrouds his lack of talent in singing with noisy cries and makes it all the more original. The guitars pace along as in Coma of Souls and, no doubt, together with Mille's angry barks, Kreator can definitely make a claim to the thrash metal throne again. This album rocks!

Since there's nothing much new to tell about the music, it's more instructive to take a closer look at the lyrics. Mille, being the unconquered master of un-reconciled, anti-establishment teenager metal lyrics, has again found succinct words to bring the ills of the world to the fore. This is something I find especially remarkable, since I never deemed it possible to yet find more ulcers in society that Kreator had not yet uncovered. Lyrics like: "Society has failed to tolerate me - and I have failed to tolerate society " are so blunt, that I wish I had not read them, but yet the album fucking rocks so much and does set another hallmark in the thrash universe. My neighbours hate this album - teach yours to hate it too.
