Kreator "Extreme Aggression" 1989 - Epic First Major Label Release

KREATOR’S 1989 “EXTEME AGRESSION” – Was It Awesome Or Did They Sell Out?

Extreme Aggression is the fourth studio album by German thrash metal band Kreator released in 1989. It was the first on a major label (Epic)

  • Extreme Aggression charted for the first time 28 years in 2017 after its release at number 90 on the German Charts. The remastered edition of the band’s 1986 album Pleasure to Kill charted on the same day.
  • Most American thrash fans became aware of Kreator through heavy rotation of the “Betrayer” on MTV’s Headbangers Ball.

Critical Response

Jason Anderson gave the album a rating of four-and-a-half stars out of five, and wrote, “The results are fierce and noisy on this 1989 Epic release — the first major-label effort for the band. Petrozza and Fioretti’s guitar work is as punchy as ever, and Reil’s massive drums are unrelenting and continually improving.”
