It had to happen eventually: Kreator falls to Shadows Fall! (I could continue with the fall jokes, but I'm better than that.) "Hordes Of Chaos" is very good and very enjoyable, but ultimately "Retribution" pays out with fresher metal, more innovation, and generally more energy. Way to go, Shads! We'll find out on Tuesday who they go up against. But for now, it's the weekend. Monday, a mighty mighty semifinal between Converge and Baroness. That one is gonna be rough!
