The above tagline has been attached to recent works by bands such as Killswitch Engage, Atreyu, Trivium, etc., when it really deserves to go to Kreator’s “Enemy of God”. After spending the last few years in an experimental phase, Kreator return with a brutal and crushing real thrash album that recalls the glory days of Slayer and Megadeth. Kreator has never sounded better than they do here, with the songs themselves more complex in their structure and the lyrics providing actual insight instead of constant screaming. The opening title track is an instant classic, while “World Anarchy”, “Dystopia”, “Voices of the Dead”, and “Dying Race Apocalypse” are some of the best material this band has ever created. Forget the pretenders flooding the metal market today, Kreator is the real deal, and “Enemy of God” is the true metal masterpiece of the new milennium.
