Kreator strikes again - 90%

kolar999, April 26th, 2012

Kreator is one of those thrash bands still keeping thrash alive after all these years. This time they strike with a new single, "Phantom Antichrist", and a cover song of Iron Maiden's "The Number of the Beast".

"Phantom Antichrist" is a straight Kreator song with a lot of aggressive riffs. The song goes hard all the time. The drums and guitar are brutal, yet creative. Melodies are changing all the time, which in my opinion is a good thing. The single also includes a demo version of the song. The other song is Maiden's "The Number of the Beast". The song is a good cover, yet it just doesn't give you the feeling of the original song. It's heavier than original with a awesome solo performance.

Kreator proves once more what they are capable of. This is what thrash is all about.
