Anyone hear the new Kreator "Phantom Antichrist" yet?
What do you think??
I've had the new Kreator CD for a couple weeks now. Gave it a few good listens. Just played it twice this morning.
I can say that Kreator has taken a step backwards. I am a fan of much older Kreator but even the last couple records were way better than this!
It seems as if many of these tracks were written for 14 year old kids. The lyrics are so cheap! They used to be such a strong point of Kreator. Sad to say, I am almost laughing how weak, plastic and forced this music/lyrics/vocals are. Pretty much any element of thrash metal has been abandoned. There are a couple good solos but nothing that is truly memorable or that's not a b-side to previous recordings. The production is nice and clear and friendly. ..but this is Kreator, what happened to the real thick and brutal punch that past recordings had!
I was thinking Kreator would have came back really strong in 2012 but it sucks to say this release is a big dud!
I still consider myself a fan of the band (I went and bought their latest release) but I don't know how this shit actually sees the light of day under the great name of KREATOR!
You might just see my copy for sale at the SDMSM
