The tracks themselves line up well with 'Enemy of God'.. If you like Kreator overall you will like this CD. Nothing you haven't come to expect. The best tracks are 'War Curse' and 'Absolute Misanthropy'. Contagious riffs. 'Escalation' is very catchy, great riffing. Just a killer track as well. 'Destroy what Destroys You' is the most accessible song on here, but it is excellent nonetheless. The others fit with the rest of Kreator's catalog. Nothing brand new, They stay in their comfort zone. Mid paced thrash with a solid foundation. Though they do thrash it up in spots pretty hard. Almost (very) Slayer-esque in the Guitar Solo's and vocal delivery. especially on 'Destroy...' The 3-4 minute length of most songs makes them even more lethal. Not much room for the over-melodic stuff.
The reason for the 4 stars? The vocal! Very raw and at times annoying. Mille really gets to the bottom of his gut on this CD. I like it for the most part, but sometimes it just hits those notes that make you shriek! Uncomfortable almost. Sounds like he went for the 'Tom Araya' style with the yelling choruses. I will say I am curious as to why he opted to take this tone throughout 80% of this disc. Makes for a more difficult listen.
But I am a seasoned Kreator fan and other than the vocal, its an A+.Read more ›
this album could have very well been used for the backgorund music for olaf ittenbach's "garden of love" or "legend f hell" films.
milie petrozza is getting better with experience and age!
"Hordes of Chaos" just might be Kreator's best effort since their 1989 release, "Extreme Aggression." They surely abandoned their creative phase from 1992-1999 and really got back down to business. There is little reason to be disappointed. This is their best album in their comeback streak. It is more ferocious than "Violent Revolution" and "Enemy of God."
This is traditional thrash metal, from a band that was there in the beginning. The fact that this CD was recorded as a band, and not one track at a time comes through as a more raw, powerful sound.
Mille's voice is the same and the riffs are all killer.
As for the DVD, it's pretty cool. Nothing ground-breaking, but it gives you a snippet (the "making of..." DVD is about 20 minutes long) of what the band is like behind the music. The end of the DVD is, however, the coolest.... but that's cause an internet posting I made on [..]about the band is shown. How sweet is that!
Again, if you like Kreator.... buy this!
Sami Yli-Simio and frontman Mike Petrozza lay down some serious shredding all throughout this set's thirty-eight-minute-long playing time. They spew deliciously crunchy riffs, propulsive leads, and ripping solos as easily as changing a light bulb, and as freely as a water from a faucet. Skull-rattling grooves, vehement vocals, a rock-solid rhythm section (comprised of sturdy, grumbling bass lines and tight and precise drumming) also run amok, here. And Kreator's arrangements are wrapped in just enough melody to keep things honest and memorable. Wrap it all up with a clear, crunchy production job, and the end result is one of the best true thrash records of the year (2009).
The pummeling aggression of "Hordes'" opening title track plays like a rousing statement of intent that makes the band's goals to tear the listener's head off clear, and gets the ball rolling immediately. Realistically, this opening blast plays like a lightning-fast whirlwind of early/Eighties-era Metallica-esque chugging, blistering buzzsaw picking, thundering blasts, and galloping thrash beats. A memorably catchy and anthemic chorus is tacked on, here, as well, as is an Exodus-styled trade-off shred solo section.Read more ›
