Product Description

About the Artist

In 2001, Sodom still are one of the most important and most authentic European thrash metal bands. Their origins date back to the year 1980. Be it the early demo tapes, their In The Sign Of Evil-EP (Steamhammer), their 1996 debut album Obsessed By Cruelty: Sodom intimidated the world at large from the very beginning. Two years and one album later, the band toured Europe with the likes of Whiplash, recording the live cut Mortal Way Of Life a the legendary Tor 3 in Düsseldorf in the process. Thanks to Agent Orange and the cult single ‘Ausgebombt’, the group from Gelsenkirchen succeeded in being the first thrash metal act world-wide to enter the German album charts. Sodom toured all over the world, travelled Europe repeatedly and played a number of successful gigs in Japan and South America. Albums like Better Off Dead (1990) or Tapping The Vein (1992) manifested the success of the band, who –despite a number of personnel changes – managed to maintain their characteristic sound, mainly thanks to bassist and vocalist Tom Angelripper. Throughout the Nineties, Sodom lost none of their authenticity on albums like Masquerade In Blood or ’Til Death Do Us Unite, remaining firmly grounded and never losing touch with their roots. With their 1999 release Code Red, a title that refers to the US Marines’ infamous punishment code, the trio consisting of Angelripper/Bernemann/Schottkowski proved as politically committed as ever. This long tradition continues with Sodom’s trip to the Far East, their gigs in Bangkok and Saigon, and of course with the controversial subject matter of their impending album M 16.

The solo is pretty good on this track as well.
PeaceSells215
It's thunderously heavy, with a great, groovy but still propulsive main riff and an instantly memorable, roaring chorus.
General Zombie
Anyone who is a fan of thrash metal should have this album in their collection.

Sodom is my favorite Thrash Metal band from Germany,

while the golden era of Thrash Metal is gone,

Many 80' Thrash bands change their style or disbanded,

But Sodom keep Thrashing till NOW!!!

That desevre my Respect!!!!!

Those Metallica Fans feel shame what Metallica doing now,

Sodom never stop thrashing just made their fans feel proud!!!

I got their first few album [which is classic, no doubt!!!]

I haven't heard anything after Agent Orange,

I think the reason for me to get this album is,

Lots of good review over the world and This year Kreator and Destruction all release killer thrash metal album,

It's sounds like Thrash Metal is back again!

The guitar sounds little bit harsh,

Tom Angelripper voice sounds as great as he did in Agent Orange and Persecution Mania,

and sounds more agressive and spittin' machine gun lyrics!!!

hard to pick a Best song,

All songs sounds killer,

but the most impressive song is the title song M-16!

A great mid-tempo song!

I think I can say it's give me a feel that,

it's sounds like in the vein of Remember The Falling!!!

The album got 4 Star,

plus one star is my respect to Sodom never stop thrashing!

A Killer Modern Thrash Metal album!

While 'M-16' isn't completely pure, old-school thrash, it's about as close as you're likely to come nowadays. Fortunately, when it deviates from the thrash norm it largely does so effectively, making the album a bit more distinctive with out weakening it. This is not sophisticated stuff, just an unrelenting bludgeoning. But it works. Very, very well.

The guitar tone on this album is quite unusual for this sort of material. It's very, very thick and fuzzy, not too far from what you might here on a doom or sludge album. Surprisingly, this actually works pretty well. If you aren't listening very carefully it'll probably turn into a blur, but it's still sufficiently distinct to be made out very easily if you are actually listening to it. It's also got a sorta punkish speed metal feel at times, a la Motorhead, and it sometimes moves into slower, doomy atmospherics. Still, it's a thrash album at it's heart, with choppy, pounding riffs the vast majority of the time.(It's midpaced quite a bit of the time, but it never really turns into groove-thrash. Frankly, there's little evidence that Sodom has listened to anything made after 1990) The lead guitar isn't given much emphasis, and none of the solos have made all that big of an impression on me, but it doesn't really detract either. It's just kinda there. The drumming is simplistic, even for this sort of material, largely with basic fills and simple 1-2 beats. But, that's all you really need for this sorta material, so it works out fine. (Some fancier fills would be nice and all, but they aren't absolutely needed.) Tom Angelripper (who has the best metal pseudonym ever) sings in a fairly harsh rasp which isn't all that far from what you'd hear on a Kreator album.

If u like Agent Orange and Better off Dead, you can buy this one and like it too. They have become a little repetitive but I'll still give it 4 stars just for keeping the 80's trash spirit alive.

Out of the four Sodom albums I own, M-16 always gets the most plays. It's definitely in my top 10 of thrash metal albums. It's not as fast as most German thrash albums ;however, it's still a crushingly heavy thrash album. If you have never heard Sodom then this album as well as Persecution Mania and Agent Orange are a great place to start.

Buy It!!!!!

Let's get one thing clear first: I absolutely love 80s style thrash, and since in my heart, a mediocre album from a third tier semi obscure band, let's say, Assassin's Interstellar Experience, will always be better than any of today's top notch first quality metal albums, let's say, Lamb of God's Wrath or Mastodon's Crack the Skye, don't expect any objectivity whatsoever from this review.
So, what we have here is a first class German Thrash album, maybe a little cleaner, focused and less chaotic than Sodom's classic 80s albums like Obsessed by Cruelty and Persecution Mania, but equally pummeling nonetheless, maybe a little more rooted in the Agent Orange mould, that is, less speed and more groove. Lirically, the songs are all about the Vietnam War, or at least all those great movies about Vietnam that came in the wake of Apocalypse Now. References to this movies are splattered all over, from the sample in Napalm in the Morning to the Surfin' Bird cover. In short, what you get here is one of the 00s best traditional thrash albums, bar none. Even if you have just a passing interest in metal's headbangiest style, do yourself a favor and pick up this sadly overlooked gem.
