Kreator - Renewal (1993) Retail CD
As the thrash metal-era came to an end at the beginning of the 80s, many bands from the genre looked around with puzzlement as to what to do next. Many got softer, not so German stalwarts Kreator. The album has a heavy grinding feel which goes a long way to mirroring the industrial North of Germany from which they hail. The opening track 'Winter Martyrium' chugs slowly at first before releasing itself into a full speed thrash attack, Mille Petrozza barking and spitting the words with his usual venom. Much of the material is slower, with ultra-heavy, leaden riffs thumping home the traditional Kreatormore… feeling of desolation with more success than at any other time in their career. The production is also very electronic/industrial. The drums are tight and controlled while the guitars often have an electronic ringing behind them, particularly on the stunning 'Karmic Wheel'. Many tracks are mini epics, full of tempo changes but often with a truly dirge-like feel. 'Europe After The Rain' is, by contrast to much of the album, one of the fastest songs Kreator have written, being a high speed, at times hardcore number, broken up by calm passages of undistorted guitar. This blend between tranquility and fury is aptly demonstrated on the stand out track 'Depression Unrest' which builds from calm into a truly ugly riff and finally a triumphant crescendo. A true forgotten metal classic from a band who dared to be different.
