He still performs those songs live, though.

* NewSoundAlbum: ''Renewal'' featured an IndustrialMetal sound, while still maintaining a thrash edge. ''Cause for Conflict'' featured a GrooveMetal sound similar to MachineHead or Music/{{Pantera}}. ''Outcast'' was a mix of the industrial metal of ''Renewal'' and a bit of goth rock. The biggest change, however, came with ''Endorama'', which was mainly a GothicMetal album, even having a member of Lacrimosa on the album. 2001's ''Violent Revolution'' had them return to their classic thrash metal sound, albeit with a more melodic tone, and they have stuck with that ever since.

Kreator is a German ThrashMetal band originating from Essen, Germany. Founded in 1978, they first named the band Tormentor, changing it later to the current name Kreator. They so far released 13 albums and two [=EP=]s. They are considered to be one of the 'big 3' thrash bands in the German scene, along with Destruction and Sodom. They emerged with a raw, unpolished sound that earned their first few albums the label of 'classic thrash albums'. Their second album, ''Pleasure to Kill'', is widely hailed as one of the greatest thrash metal albums of all time, as well as the band's MagnumOpus. One critic even voted it as ''the'' greatest thrash album ever. It was also one of the many landmark thrash albums released in 1986, the others being ''Music/MasterOfPuppets'' by Music/{{Metallica}}, ''Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?'' by Music/{{Megadeth}}, ''Reign in Blood'' by Music/{{Slayer}}, ''Game Over'' by Nuclear Assault, and ''Darkness Descends'' by Music/DarkAngel.
