Kreator, the original German thrash metalists, are giving us new music with their latest release Gods Of Violence. The album was release through Nuclear Blast Records on January 27, 2017.
Kreator has always had a more in your face, aggressive, speed thrash type of sound and we love it. Kreator is one of those bands that I put on full blast in the car after having a bad day and everything just seems so much better. All of my frustrations are melted away through blasting drum beats and fast as hell guitars.
With Gods Of Violence, Kreator has made a few (slight) changes. They have added a bit more complexity to their music this go around. This album has a more progressively influenced type feel to me. There are time changes, energetic melodies mixed with merciless rhythms, and of course their signature chaotic sounding guitars that have a more developed sound. For a music fan like me this all just brings a little more balance to the beautiful chaos we have come to expect from Kreator.
Now, although I may not always be onboard with the subjects for the lyrics in Kreator songs, the music makes me feel so damn good, I am able to move right past that. So if you have been on the fence about checking this band out, take the leap. You will not regret it.
