German thrash metal has its revival, and it’s lead by Kreator and Destruction. Mille Petrozza and his men have made a classic thrash album that still sounds very much up to date. Violent Revolution marks a farewell to guitarist Tommy Vetterli, and a hello to Finnish axeslinger Sami Yli-Sirnio. The production has been overseen by none other than Andy Sneap, whose work with Nevermore proves he never takes away a bands strong identity. Musically, all old Kreator fans will be very pleased by this disc; you’ll find a more genuine back to the roots feeling with this record than most other so-called retro attempts today. Like I said already; the band takes full advantage of today’s recording technique and equipment, giving “Violent Revolution” a high class sound without interfering with the overall back to the roots feel. “Reconquering The Throne” is a fine opener, and while I always had a love for the Bay Area thrash scene, I realize that Kreator holds the throne on the eastern side of the Atlantic.
