Some good choices, but it goes to Kreator.

Their 1985 release "Endless Pain" might have just barely made a top 25 albums list for that year. Their 1986 album "Pleasure to kill" would not have made a top 25 list for that year. However, in 1987 Terrible Certainty was so good that it got the number three slot. A very strong offering and the first of several solid efforts that this band would put out.

I have to disagree. Although roughly produced, "Pleasure To Kill" is a barnstormer. Also, "Terrible Certainty"s follow-up, "Extreme Aggression", is so weak and lacking in power that I find it to be unlistenable.

Pleasure to Kill and Terrible Certainty were certainly their peak. I think TC deserves the most improved production award, more like.
