First re-release of the sixth full-length studio album by legendary German Industrial/Hardcore/Thrash Metal band.
Set ablaze two years after its predecessor, “Renewal” took point as the face of Kreator and their next chapters in their career. Recorded at Morrisound Studios, Tampa, Florida, it is the first Kreator’s "experimental" album, introducing noticeable elements of Industrial and Hardcore.
The strong will for a change can beat any obstacle in one’s path, whether for personal fulfillment or mainly a purpose just to show that it can be done. After piercing the skin with the iconic “Coma Of Souls” (1990), starting the 90s with an iron fist, unanimously it was decided in the band that right after attain such a formidable status, it was time to break away and set course into a different world. Such a world that in the end might not be overly far from their beastly habits, yet much more dark, mysterious, even charmingly gothic, filled with ounces of pain, misery and dismay due to society’s crumble and the human condition. Not bashing up skulls as used to in the past, Kreator proved that “Renewal” has its rougher edges, some of them even sharp and can shed blood at will. Even with mid-tempo, and on a few occasions slow tempo thrusts, the horrific past, present and future of the social structure is no less mortifying.
Maybe the need for change wasn’t because the band wanted it but also because the market demanded it as it changed as well. On the other hand, Kreator were never sellouts and remained true to their strong beliefs. “Renewal” is the band’s successful debut step outside of the Thrash Metal boundary, a marker that would eventually remain throughout the band’s 90s era!
Remastered re-edition features three bonus tracks and 28-page booklet.
