The production is raw and really works well for the songs.
CRH
Ventor's drumming is just awesome and relentless with fast, thunderous beats and fills and ripping and rattling double bass kicking.
Jeremy Brackeen
And Kreator is among the few (or only) band that never produced a complete dud album like other well known metal bands.

I've been following Kreator ever since Terrible Certainty and have always been seduced by the passion Mille Petrozza and his cohorts have put across in each release. Mille - like Machine Head's Rob Flynn - is first and foremost a metal fan as well as a musician. He lives, breathes, sleeps and eats metal. This release is full of the usual conviction and intensity but also has more 'hooks' or catchy melodies than its predecessor Enemy of God. This is no Opeth or Agalloch. Progressive is not a common word in Kreator circles, although the terrific Outcast and Endorama albums show that Kreator can dabble in the subtle and melancholic if it chooses to. But this release absolutely smacks of freshness and virtuosity and will make you want to bounce off walls when you hear it. Well it does for me and I'm a 38 year old father of two. So there. This is probably their strongest album since Extreme Agression and for those of you enjoying the current thrash revival, this will remind you what we've been missing all these years.

It is well recorded, and was recorded more or less 'Live' as portrayed in the DVD, with all the musicians playing the base of the songs together. It isn't nearly as crisp and clear as 'Enemy of God'. But it works. It sounds a little looser and I will say the riffs are nothing new, but very well executed. I love this bands sound, especially in the 'Extreme Aggression' , 'Coma of Souls' era. Therefore, the sound on this disc is to my liking as well as the flow of the disc. Has a good punch.

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+.

If you're reading this, you're a Kreator fan. If you're a Kreator fan you most likely enjoyed their last release "Enemy of God" and classics like "Coma of Souls" and "Terrible Certainty." If you like those, you'll like "Hordes of Chaos."
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!

Kreator's Hordes of Chaos is a masterpiece. It's as simple as that. As soon as the intro to the title track concludes 43 seconds into the song, Sami's riffing will take you. When Mille opens his mouth a few seconds later, you're gone.

More speedy riffs follow and lead right into an extremely catchy chorus, eventually culminating in the chilling "everyone against everyone against everyone" team scream at the end of the song. This impressive track includes some of the best lyrics on the album, and I wouldn't be surprised if it remains a live staple for years to come. It ends on the same mellower riff with which it began, but don't relax yet. "Hordes of Chaos" gives way to Ventor's hammering of the bass drums. Another rapid riff follows, and before you know it Mille is shrieking "Warcurse" into your ears. "Escalation" takes over where "Warcurse" leaves off and leads into the eerie intro of "Amok Run." Mille attempts to sing over the intro, reminiscent of his vocals in the middle of "The Ancient Plague" on Enemy of God. The song gradually builds itself up into the most intense on the album. During the chorus it is IMPOSSIBLE not to thrash. I've yet to listen to this song without kicking something over.

Following a slower, more melodic outro to "Amok Run" (but still with Mille yelling), Kreator hammers the listener with the brutality of "Destroy What Destroys You," another track I can definitely see them playing live for the next decade. Next up is "Radical Resistance" and "Absolute Misanthropy," the two weakest tracks on the album, but still swift thrashers that fit in nicely. "To the Afterborn" slows things down a little bit. It makes up for speed and brutality with a chilling chorus and some scattered shrieking by Mille.
