After two successful albums, the trend continues with Kreator’s newest release Hordes Of Chaos. Rather than rely on Andy Sneap (who helmed their last two albums, as well as a few live releases), the album was produced by Moses Schneider (Beatsteaks, and Tocotronic), and mixed by Colin Richardson (Machine Head, Trivium, Overkill). The entire album was recorded live on a 4-track analog tape recorder for a totally organic sound. This may be a turn-off for those who prefer the clarity of Violent Revolution and Enemy Of God, but they used the same techniques when they recorded Pleasure To Kill in 1986. The results pretty much speak for themselves. It’s raw, energetic, and pissed off. If you’re new to Kreator, this isn’t a bad album to start with.
