Rock - Released September 22, 1987 | Sanctuary Records

Kreator dialed in their modern thrash on Terrible Certainty, the group's third full-length offering. One of the most highly anticipated European metal records of the decade, this 1987 release proves that the previous year's hit, Pleasure to Kill, wasn't a fluke, and that Kreator was capable of delivering under pressure. The German outfit cranks up the technical difficulty on Terrible Certainty, executing the tightest performances of their career while maneuvering around some extremely difficult, yet memorable riffs. The guitar flurries of the title track and "Behind the Mirror" hold their own against the best work from Metallica or any other American thrash behemoths. Some might argue that the stateside metal heads even took some cues from Terrible Certainty. It is certain that Kreator's influence isn't limited to stateside artists, as modern European metal has never been the same since the group unleashed a slew of powerful late-'80s discs, Terrible Certainty arguably being the best of the lot. © Vincent Jeffries /TiVo

Rock - Released January 9, 2012 | Sanctuary Records

Of all the underground European thrash outfits who helped pioneer death metal during the '80s -- bands like Hellhammer, Sodom, Destruction, and Bathory -- Kreator arguably holds up the best over time (with the possible exception of Celtic Frost). Where many of their peers made an impression solely through manic intensity, Kreator became increasingly able to bolster their harsh fury with progressive compositions and tight, technically accomplished musicianship. The band's most influential period, 1985-1992, is captured on Past Life Trauma, a fan-selected, 18-track best-of that features two rarities and two previously unreleased tracks. Featuring most of Kreator's best material from the '80s and early '90s, it's the perfect introduction to the influential thrashers' output, and it's been digitally remastered to boot. © Steve Huey /TiVo

Rock - Released January 9, 2012 | Sanctuary Records

A mishmash of assorted material taken from German uber-thrashers Kreator's middle period (some would say golden era), 1996's Scenarios of Violence makes for an entertaining, but historically confusing listening experience. Included here are regular album cuts ("Renewal," "Europe After the Rain"), brand-new cuts ("Suicide in Swamps," "Depressive Unrest"), remixed tracks ("Toxic Trace," "Terrible Certainty"), and live recordings of established classics ("Extreme Aggressions," "Tormentor"). All of which make for an interesting collection for longtime Kreator addicts, but a far-from-perfect introduction for brand-new fans. The latter are instead urged to seek out the also flawed, but much more cohesive Past Life Trauma (1985-1992) collection. © Eduardo Rivadavia /TiVo
