Huh? Kreator cooperate with a producer mostly known and famous (and getting several Echo award nominations for that) for his work with bands like Beatsteaks, Tocotronic, and Turbostaat? What the heck? Don’t worry, the flag ship of Teutonic Thrash Metal still has all its assets: brutal sounds and Mille’s signature, bellowing voice. The soundscape per se, created by Moses Schneider, is a bit rougher and muffled and very organic. Apart from that, "Hordes of chaos" is vintage Kreator, convincing with catchy, but technically very clean Thrash Metal songs. The motto of the first three tracks is full throttle - hefty rhythm flak plus intricate riffing and soli melt into belting choruses, so you can’t but sing along... The rest of the album? Thrash reigns supreme - period. Well, they didn’t forget about compositorial versatility and melody either (just check out "To the afterborn").

Thrash metal band Kreator released Hordes Of Chaos. This album was recorded live in studio, the album is raw angry typical Kreator record full of heavy riffs, face melting solos, powerful and technical drumming.
Technically this album is just fantastic. The guitar work, both riff and lead work is just spot on. No where in the realm of thrash does there exist any guitarist better than Mille Petrozza, and on this album he proves just why. The drumming is just fantastic. This is the best performance by Ventor so far & on this album he truly becomes drumming legend, the main highlight is the quality of songwriting which is very high and successfully merges the raw, brutal, in your face thrash with the more melodic elements.
All in all, this is a good album. The choruses to most of the songs are very catchy, there are plenty of hooks, and it retains the spirit of classic thrash that seems to be so absent on many new releases today.
