Slayer and Kreator, both bands have similar qualities in music. Ive also heard before that Kreator is a German version of Slayer now that may be ture in some cases but prpbably not all. This is a tough question for me because both bands are two of my very favorite bands but i will have to go with Slayer. One reason is because they stuck to their thrash roots all through their career and i like all of their albums not one of them is bad in my opinion, and there are some albums by Kreator that are just okay. What do you guys think?

Not a big fan, but neither do I like the same era Slayer's stuff that much. As far as old thrash bands experimentation in the 90's went, I think Kreator did relatively well. I may be in the minority, but post-2000 Kreator sounds fantastic to me. They were able to add this whole new epic texture to their music, while remaining heavy and even brutal for thrash metal. This is actually the main reason I voted for them and I guess saying that they've been "more solid throughout" was a bit of an overstatement. So I'll take that back.

I totally agree Kreator did really well in the post-2000s and much better than Slayer. I do prefer Slayer's 1990s output to most of Kreator's 1990s output. I really disliked their industrial/hardcore/groove tinkerings for the most part. It's not because they stopped playing Thrash (I like Load and Youthanasia) but I just don't like Kreator's stuff of that period. It sounds too souless.

yes, totally agree with you guys
post 2000 Kreator are best then Slayer
Slayer are amazing in 90. New Slayer stuff are good but no as old ones

It's funny how it seems that mostly European dudes are picking Kreator and State side guys are picking Slayer.

Demographic much?

Slayer all the way. Most overrated thrash is imo German thrash. Europe didn't have that many good thrash bands at all back then and still to this day. Worst country of course being England with only Sabbat being great and Onslaught being okay.
American thrash all the way.

that has to be highly exagerated.

I m european and I usually prefer teutonic thrash but... in this case... I vote for Slayer
