The ultimate KREATOR

Whatever is your opinion on KREATOR and whichever is the order of their albums in your personal favorite list, no Thrash Metal fan can deny the huge impact of the second album of this bunch of back then German kids. For many fans from back then “Pleasure To Kill” up to this day remains the ultimate KREATOR, the epitome of sheer brutal power and over-the-top aggression coming from its tracks. Besides, it has always been the perfect media to scare the shit out of your annoying neighbors. Can’t say I consider this artificially old look of the cover artwork (especially the back side one) to be anything good, but for the rest there are no complaints, its really great reissue of the all time classic of Thrash, Death or whatever you may call it Metal.

One of my all time favourite albums. The best Kreator ever wrote and recorded. Pleasure to Kill is an early thrash/black 80s crossover that whilst firmly thrash has the feel of Dissection's Storm of the Light's Bane coursing through it. Not a dud track on the record.
The LP version has Flag of Hate added and the vinyl sounds perfect. The artwork reflects the era perfectly and the liner notes interesting.
I now own this on cassette, CD and LP - it's that good !

Crazy trash

I will also contribute my humble contribution to the description of this sound squall, which came out from the pen of Herr Petrozza in the distant 1986 now. I heard it for the first time in the year so 1997, being a seventh-grade student and tightly pierced by a thrasher. The first sensation was a wild misunderstanding. After the sane and clearly structured albums of Slayer and Megadeth, I was hit by a flurry of aggression and desperate rage. The choking voices of Mille and Ventor, who, as crazy and drumming on the drums, made an unforgettable impression on me, which has remained so far. Pros of the album: wild fumes and expression, the enthusiasm of these young boys. It is felt that they tried to play at the limit of physical possibilities in terms of speed of execution. But the minuses - it's a lousy crusty sound and not yet a good possession of the instruments, there is a lack of a second guitar in terms of the density of the guitar sound. But this Kreator will be corrected already on the next album, inviting to itself to pomuzitsirovat its school friend Jorga Tritze. In the meantime, Kreator has not gained momentum yet. But in any case, it is necessary to listen, and shame on you, if you are an amateur of the old school thrash, and do not have this album in your collection.
