I was never much of a fan of the German Thrash scene which includes KREATOR. I respected them for what they have done for the scene since the beginning, but just was never into them. Now that I have this double live CD in my hands, I heard them from beginning to end. I think this is a great way to celebrate their 20 plus years in the scene by offering 24 of their harshest material that runs the gamut from the beginning until now.
CD one contains five tracks from the "Violent Revolution" CD and the tour which they were promoting. The CD was produced and recorded very well which is something that you always don't get especially with a band that is as raw and powerful as this one. Mille's vocals haven't lost a damn thing here and their sound is just as sonic as back in the day. One of the originators of German Thrash scene can show some of these new kids a trick or two.
Let's not forget the classics here. You can hear the fans cheering and chanting to "Extreme Aggression" and asking for more with "Pleasure To Kill". Disc two offers you more merciless onslaught with classics like "Tormentor", "Flag Of Hate" and "Betrayer". Something here for everyone. (Online September 26, 2003)
