Continuing my QT's about the Unholy Trinity of 1986, I bring you my opinion on Kreator's "Pleasure to Kill."

Out of the three albums in the Unholy Trinity, I love this one the best (though Dark Angel's "Darkness Descends" doesn't trail far behind at all).  Despite being recorded in 1986, this album still sounds a fuckload more intense than most of the "extreme" metal acts of today.

This album is rife with brutal-as-hell thrash songs like "Ripping Corpse," "Pleasure to Killl," "Riot of Violence," "Carrion," and "Command of the Blade."  Even after getting this album six years ago, when my knowledge in extreme metal was still fairly meager, I still hold this up as my favorite thrash metal album to come from any band in Germany, and one of my favorite albums ever.

If the band Kreator is alien to you but you love thrash metal, check out these tracks.

I'll cap this off by saying it's albums like this that made me loose interest in Metallica's thrash albums.

I spent a lot of time and money in the last months of my senior year in high school buying whatever looked …
