Like all bands, you’ve gotta start somewhere. This album is vintage early thrash, very reminiscent of Show No Mercy — in fact, some of the songs sound like they could have easily been traded with Slayer. Not quite the Kreator sound yet, they really seemed to come into their own with Pleasure to Kill, but very cool nonetheless. I’ve not heard the original recording, but the remaster is good — probably cleaned up enough to appreciate the music a tad more (ie, the new KIMB). I would agree with others that this isn’t the place to start if you’re new to Kreator (I’d recommend Extreme Aggression or Coma of Souls for that) but if you know them and appreciate them, hearing this, their roots, should be enjoyable.
