\m/ SODOM \m/


Recommended Posts

Since 1981 the german Thrash-Legends "SODOM" (Twitter: @sodomized) have established themselves as an unique and internationally well-known HM-Band - (founded by: "Tom Angelripper" in Gelsenkirchen, NRW, Germany - just about 10 km away from my own hometown Bochum) ! One of their finest efforts is "M-16" - here for you in the form of a HQ-Video -> http://bit.ly/q54pBb ! For more Information about Germany's SODOM -> http://bit.ly/pkLJG0 ! HYLI \m/ - LD -

Re: SODOM - finest Thrash Metal since decades from Gelsenkir

Bullshit they are. Their early work is first wave black metal' date=' one of the most bestial early bands influenced by Venom, who evolved into a class act German thrash act that are still making good albums, which can't exactly be said for Slayer.[/quote'] They suck. Always have and always will. Slayer sucks anymore too. No argument.

Re: \m/ SODOM \m/

I dislike bands like cannibal corpse, because i dont like the vocals or lyrics, but i dont say they suck, because thhe musicianship is awesome, if ey made instrumentals i would listen to them, But you just say bands suck, and domt say any positive things about them :P
What makes your opinion so valid? Cannibal Corpse are badass and light years ahead of Sodom. I did comment on their playing. They're 5th rate Slayer worship, ergo they suck ass. If there was something positive about them I'd have said it. Also, had you bothered to look through the threads you'd have noticed there's already a Sodom thread.

Sodom is great, and they don't sound like Slayer, let alone worshiping Slayer at any rate. They were a black metal band while Slayer was still primordial thrash/speed metal, and when they did turn pure thrash, they absolutely buried what Slayer was doing at the time. Persecution Mania and Agent Orange absolutely destroy Reign in Blood, because they didn't forget that you still need to write songs when you play that fast.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
