Sound: Filmed during their 1990 "Extreme Aggression" tour, this DVD cap - er, Kaptures - Germany's gods of brutal thrash Kreator at the peak of their powers. What makes this concert of note is that it was filmed not long after the fall of the Berlin Wall, a time of special significance to Kreator and their countrymen on the Eastern side of that symbol of oppression. Indeed, the audience's energy is palpable throughout Kreator's set - a communal catharsis of repressed aggression. Highlights include "Under The Guillotine" and the tight interplay between vocalist/guitarist Mille Petrozza and ex-Sodom six-stringer Frank Blackfire on "Pleasure To Kill" and the epic "Riot Of Violence", along with their evergreens "Love Us Or Hate Us" and "Behind The Mirror". Petrozza's trademark harsh screech falters from time to time, but otherwise these live renditions are every bit as powerful - in some cases moreso - as their studio versions. // 8

Overall Impression: '80's Euro-Thrash isn't every metalhead's cup of rivets, but for the diehards, Kreator's music has never been presented so well. And while music is a deeply personal form of communication, there are moments in history when it speaks for many. Kreator's "At The Pulse Of Kapitulation" is a fine documentation of a time when it did. // 8
