KREATOR - Extreme Aggression 3LP
BACK IN STOCK!
Extreme Aggression is the fourth studio album by German Thrash Metal band Kreator released in 1989. While the band had already gained a sizeable following in the US due to their 1987 tour with the crossover thrash band D.R.I., this album introduced many American fans to Kreator, primarily through heavy rotation of the "Betrayer" music video on MTV's Headbangers Ball, which was partly shot at the Acropolis in Athens, Greece.
Extreme Aggression is the missing link between their earlier raging period and their very clean ‘Coma of Souls’ techno-thrash era. The album is loaded with all the characteristic attributes of the genre staple, from deadly riffs to solid drumming. You get some of the best riffs ever to be played in thrash metal – displayed by “Betrayer”, “Extreme Aggressions”, “Fatal Energy” and “No Reason to Exist” – as well a brutal dose of properly injected anger and just all out viciousness. The songs shift from brutal and aggressive to catchy and swinging on a dime, and every song packs some absolutely lethal riffs for every situation.
This version contains bonus materilal of a show recorded in Berlin in 1990 that showcases the band in full flight in their prime time.
A massive and essential TRIPLE-LP version in gatefold cover, 180 gram heavy vinyl, includes sleeve notes from Mille Petrozza.
