Prior to the release, frontman Mille Petrozza claimed that Phantom Antichrist would be the "most epic" Kreator album ever. He went further saying that Phantom Antichrist is better than anything released by the Big Four in recent years. These words seemed to be empty rhetoric at first, but after being taken on the "epic" journey through Phantom Antichrist, the impression is that Petrozza and Co. have succeeded in fulfilling their promises.

Kreator! Aaaaaaahhhhh! That is all I need to state to introduce this review. 13th studio album from the reigning kings of Teutonic Thrash Metal and rightfully regarded as one of the most respected Metal bands of all time. Anybody wants to disagree with that? I thought not. It is refreshing to see a musical style best known for its impact on the 1990s still being alive and well in 2012.

Comes outta the gate hard... But can't keep it going. How many times have I seen that happen.


I don't completely agree with that, although mostly I do. The album gets off to an amazing start, reaching a peak with "Civilisation Collapse", which is Kreator at their devestating and awesome best. Whilst there is some goodness after that, the rest of the album never quite manages to live up to the very high standards set by the first few songs.

For me Phantom Antichrist was the best tune. The intro song was kinda cool although could have done without the "la-la-la-la-la" stuff haha. All in all not a bad album though, has it's moments.

And as good as that song is, sadly this album had no Terror Zone moments. Granted Coma of Souls doesn't even have a lot of Terror Zone moments but that song should have a religion based on it. So good

The title track, Death To The World, and Civilisation Collapse are the best songs on the album for me, and they're all loaded on the album's front end. It's not a bad album, and I certainly prefer it overall to the previous album, but compared to their most classic albums, it is a bit lacking.

I have stated on this messageboard more than once, that Terror Zone is probably my fave Kreator song, and Coma Of Souls is my fave Kreator album. To me, Terror Zone is pure thrash perfection, it can't be bettered really! xD

The song structure and way that song progresses is just unreal. It's easily the best song Kreator has done, to me, straight up shit-ruining awesomeness.

when talking about kreator and when saying that "terror zone" is their best song man should be really careful. "terror zone" is really AMAZING. but is it really better than "some pain will last". i always think that these 2 songs are of the same blood and speak the same awesome words to our soul.... (of course i dont mean that they are similar as music but only as style and feeling)

Meh, man, the first time I heard Terror Zone, I just about shit myself at how awesome it was. And it's a perfect example of a proper slow build up in a thrash song culminating in shit-fuck mind shredding brain busting ridiculous thrashosity.
Angelic Storm - 16.10.2012 at 06:07  
  "Some Pain Will Last" is an awesome song, it's definitely in my top 10 fave Kreator songs!

Rating: 8 Agree with previous comments that the front half of this album is better than the back end. It feels like it is going to be a full-on thrash fest but then loses its way in the second half. Not that I think it's awful or anything, in fact I really like the whole album. The song "The Few, The Proud, The Broken" sounds a bit proggy - what is this - PROG THRASH? I dig it anyway. Damn good album overall.

Rating: 3 This album was horribly bland, I cannot figure out this over the top adulation it's receiving.

Rating: 7 The problem with this album is the lack of energy. HoC was such a kick in the nuts, hard to top that. I like Kreator wading unknown waters, but they aren't very good at making epic tracks, and the cleans are just laughable.
Mattybu - 03.01.2013 at 23:15  
  I will crush my CD up into little plastic shards and ingest them if there isn't 10 better albums than this in 2012
RattleSnake - 03.01.2013 at 23:32  
  For me best album of 2012 !!!

Rating: 7 Very average album in my opinion, especially considering that its from Kreator!

  For me, this album is the best european thrash metal album of all times !

Rating: 8 Very disappointing album. I'm amazed so many rate it so highly. Am I the only one who thinks the sound production sounds very Machine Head/Trivium like?!

I don't think so. I love this album, while I hate Machine Head and Trivium.

I love this album and I also love Machine Head and think Trivium are pretty good too.

Rating: 8 Well much to my surprise, this album has grown on me significantly after a few more listens!

I still think the production is a bit...I don't know, there's something about it that irks me that I can't quite put my finger on, certainly not as good as on their other 2000's albums. But most of the songs are great and I'm sure they'll sound even better live when I see them tomorrow night!

  Didnt do much to me. Has some good moments though.

Rating: 8 This one keeps getting better and better.

I was initially not impressed with the sound on it, but it has grown.

The music is pretty awesome - catchy, riffy and pissed off. Classic Kreator really!
