Kreator: Enemy of God-Revisited (CD/DVD)

When it comes to the Thrash Metal genre there are few bands that can stand up to the titan that is Germany's Kreator. In 2005, the group released Enemy Of God, a powerful and intense recording that showed the Metal world that Kreator had not gone away and was still capable of delivering the goods. It was also an album that showcased that the band could, and would be able to grow and mature in a world of ever-changing musical tides and as a result be influenced by some of the climate that was happening around them. The influences would not deter them from their course of Metal destruction, but in turn would blend fluidly and give the listener a new way to appreciate their favorite band. The elements that one can hear are traces of Arch Enemy but don't worry, you will not find any rapping over the riffs here like so many bands who changed their sound ended up doing. The Masters of the Thrash aspect with limited peer proved that "Enemy Of God" would please the listener by using the tried and true formula and also elements of the Melodic Death being showcased in so many of today's powerful bands.

SPV Records has re-visited this monster recording with Enemy Of god Revisited, and not only do you get the original recording but you get bonus tracks and a DVD that is loaded with music and video to enjoy. If there is any reason that you missed buying this album the first time around, well your chance and reason to fix this have increased. A full concert film alone makes it worth the price tag. If you Thrash until you bleed, then you need this release in your collection.

DVD Features: Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany (2005): Intro, Enemy Of God, Impossible Brutality, Pleasure To Kill, Phobia, Violent Revolution, Suicide Terrorist, Extreme Aggression, People Of The Lie, Voice Of The Dead, Terrible Certainty, Betrayer, Flag Of Hate, Tormenter. More live tracks recorded at Rockpalast Bootleg 2006 German TV Show (Renewal, Reconquering The Throne, Servant In Heaven King In Hell). Videos: Enemy Of God, Making Of Enemy Of God, Dystopia, Impossible Brutality, Dying Race Apocalypse. Propaganda for Enemy Of God.

*** Those who have seen Kreator in concert over the years know full-well that this is one of the best ways to enjoy this band. Seeing them perform in front of the Wacken crowd is amazing, for they truly control the audience in this one the bodies are flying everywhere.

Kreator: Enemy of God-Revisited (CD/DVD)
Posted by Pete Pardo, SoT Staff Writer on 2006-12-14 17:29:33
My Score:

Hard to believe that Germany's Kreator have been thrashing the metal scene for over 20 years now, and with the release of Enemy of God, have further cemented their status among the elite of extreme metal. Enemy of God-Revisited gives the Kreator another reason to enjoy this release all over again. Not only do you get the CD, but a DVD as well featuring a smoking hot performance at the Wacken Open Air Festival with the band playing most of their signature tunes. The 5.1 Mix of the album is in itself a wonder to listen to, as you can experience the brutality and technical expertise of this splendid Kreator release in its ultimate format.

The live show, filmed in front of a huge crowd at Wacken, shows just how much respect Kreator have gotten from the metal community, as they take the stage like conquering heroes. The concert is filmed with a grainy filter, giving you the feeling that you are there in the crowded, sweaty audience with the thousand other metal heads.

If you haven't yet experienced Enemy of God, now is your chance.
