Terrible Certainty saw Kreator take their brutal, shredding thrash sound and streamline it somewhat. Compared to Pleasure to Kill, the production on this album is much cleaner, but I have to say it loses some power in the process. It's just a bit weak for my liking. The songs themselves are a bit more varied with the band restraining from going flat chat for the entire album which is refreshing.

Blind Faith, Terrible Certainty, One of Us and Behind the Mirror are all great, but for some reason, I find it harder to recommend this album than I do for Pleasure to Kill or Extreme Aggression. It's solid all the way through and contains that undeniable Kreator quality that we all love, but there are no 5-star tracks to take it to the next level. Very entertaining, but not a must-have thrash release.
