Over the last decade or so, Kreator has embraced a much fuller, more melodic style that, paired with remarkably consistent material, has kept the band at the forefront of the thrash scene with such veteran grace and wisdom that it's almost impossible not to appreciate Kreator from a professional standpoint as well as a musical one.

If, during the last five years, you have been anticipating a return-to-brutal-thrash-roots Kreator album, stop reading now and don't even bother listening to Gods Of Violence. If, on the other hand, you have welcomed and enjoyed the new direction and approach that the band has taken since 2001, proceed with reading this review, my fellow metalhead. Don't be fooled by the high rating though, because this is not an encomium.

The year 2016 showed us that some old American thrash bands still have it in them. Kreator shows us that 2017 in Europe will not be worse. "Gods of Violence" is simply excellent.

Too melodic, it's like to hear "In Flames"


wait... what?

Yes, in my opinion this album it's a mezcle of Jester Race and the classic thrash metal sound of Kreator


what's a "mezcle"?

I don't hear any In Flames here?

I made a mistake, I meant to say "a mix".

I think if you strain and contort your perspective listening abilities enough, you can gather hints of what In Flames sort of sounded like at times in some songs during their 90s run. But as a direct comparison, I'm not so sure I can get on board with.
