"Get yer beer and then put this on. Kreator pounds you into tiny pieces on this loveable disc. Also included is the most ferocious FLAG OF HATE EP. This is Thrash Metal. It's not tight, slick, nor does it have any uptown production. It isn't tuned down to sound heavy. It is HEAVY WITHOUT GIMMICKS. What this disc does have is what so many over-produced metal records lack: honesty. Wild and slashing from the start, the speed, high energy abandon and zeal with which Kreator makes still, after 25 years, an all time favorite of mine. And we Metal Heads bought this on a lark, for kicks. Turned into a house favorite for many, many years." -P. Arron Jones
"Pleasure To Kill" is the second studio album by German thrash-metal band Kreator, released in March 1986 by Noise Records. "Pleasure To Kill" is widely considered a landmark thrash-metal classic, along with "Master Of Puppets" by Metallica, "Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?" by Megadeth, "Reign In Blood" by Slayer, "Eternal Devastation" by Destruction, and "Darkness Descends" by Dark Angel, all released in 1986. The album played a considerable role in the development of many extreme-metal subgenres, and death-metal bands such as Cannibal Corpse cite the album as an influence.
