I just heard this album yesterday for the first time and I was instantly impressed by the agressiveness, which I have never heard in Kreator before (almost as aggressive as Hypocrisy’s newer releases). Extreme Aggression will always be my favourite Kreator album, but Outcast might just have slipped into second place. What I really like about this album is how it retains a bit of the sound used in Renewal, but also gains new ground aswell as speed. Kreator have matured into an amazing band (not that they haven’t always been amazing). This was released in 1997, but it might aswell have been released in 2007. The sound quality is better than most releases these days, and songs like ‘Black Sunrise’, ‘Leave This World Behind’ and ‘Phobia’ make this album worth every penny.
