Night is over Now it’s dawn Your final day Has begun Hear the steps On the floor Hear the sounds Of the opened door Too proud to scream Too proud to beg for mercy You will die by the executioner’s hand
Under The Guillotine
Tears are running Down your cheeks As you see The axe of death You were a prisoner Didn’t care about the rules Now it’s time To pay for the fools
The album played a considerable role in the development of many extreme metal subgenres, and many death metal bands cite the record as an influence. The lyrical themes follow those found on their first album Endless Pain, containing descriptions of horrible scenes of death and horror. (Source: Wikipeadia)

KREATOR’S 1989 “EXTEMEAGRESSION” – Was It Awesome Or Did They Sell Out?
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 Killcharted on the same day.
Most American thrash fans became aware of Kreator through heavy rotation of the “Betrayer” on MTV’s Headbangers Ball.
Album Artwork From Extreme Agression
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 released — 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.”
Endless Pain was the debut LP by German thrash metal legends Kreator. The production on the original was very raw and unpolished. The band was obviously very young and clearly imitating other early extreme metal bands like Venom.
Endless Pain was released in 1985 on Noise Record.
Millie Petrozza and Ventor are both “lead singer” on the album.
The album is classified as black metal or thrash metal, as it combines element of both, along with the slopyness and agression of early punk and hardcore.
