Sound quality and composition are great.
Erick D. Rodriguez
Over the years they have consistently put out great albums, although 'get what you deserve' was a pretty weak cd, all others have been solid.
Frank Rini
The sound is characteristic of Sodom, pummeling drums, great guitar riffs and excellent vocals.

Sodom have more than their fair share of competition nowadays. With thrashers like Demiricous, Sadus, Sepultura, and Hurtlocker releasing new albums, and with Venom and Celtic Frost (two other bands from the Eighties) making big comebacks in 2006, Sodom's attention has been somewhat limited. And, unfortunately for them, it gets worse: bands like Slayer, Megadeth, The Haunted, and Testament are also expected to release new discs later this year. Plus, 2005's speed metal bands (Exodus, Nevermore, etc.)--and all of the modern thrash/thrashcore bands flooding the market today (i.e. Trivium, Shadows Fall, etc.)--also pose as a potential threat to Sodom's record sales. And, lastly, being a thrash band from Germany doesn't help one's case much, either, as there is plenty competition among those, too. Indeed, with Deutschland turning out more than a few key artists over the years (consider Kreator, Destruction, Reflection, Dead Emotions, Exhumer, Respawn, and Dew Scented), it seems that country is the equivalent of America's Bay Area.

On their umpteenth, self-titled 2006 album, Sodom play it pretty safe. They stick close to home, and stick to what they know best: making a fast, surprise free, frills free, raw riff-a-rama which is beefed up with ferocious guitar leads and surprisingly technical solos, and is coupled with Angelripper's screamed vocals. On this disc's best tracks, like the relentless "Lords Of Depravity," the blindingly fast rhythms and scorching guitars are augmented by bottom heavy double bass drumming. Meanwhile Angelripper, who is the only remaining member of the band's original line-up, sounds along the lines of a high pitched Tom Araya. And when he is bellowing about a "war machine" in "Lay Down The Law" (or yelling "The enemy inside!

It's been five years since German thrashers Sodom released their previous album M-16, and while they did release a live album and DVD in between, this eponymous release sees the trio at their most consistent and perhaps strongest phase. The Angelripper, Bernemann and Schottkowksi trio is the most consistent Sodom lineup since they've been together for over 10 years now, and this has certainly reflected on their new album.

The most noticeable aspect of their new platter is the powerful guitar tone with remarkably improved soloing and melodic content. Produced by former Sodom axeman Andy Brings, the trio opt for a more guitar-heavy release, utilising Angelripper's trademark bass sound as a second guitar to generate a thicker and fuller rhythmic bottom. While this may turn some people off, Bernemann's guitar work should impress quite a few fans. One thing Sodom has always been criticised for was their guitar work, which, some felt, was lacking in their previous releases. This disc more than makes up for it, considering the diverse playing on "Blood on Your Lips", starting with ominous acoustic guitars before launching into a full thrash assault, backed up by a toxic vocal performance, and a great drum attack during the relatively calmer middle section. Though there aren't as many rhythm changes here as on some other pieces, this is one of the best songs on the album. Even Tom Angelripper went out of his way to try something different, using his deep whispered narrations, which you can also hear on "Axis of Evil", whose title was inspired by a quote by George W. Bush. Both of these songs have solemn acoustic breaks and moodier passages compared to much of Sodom's back catalog that may please or anger their fanbase.

One would think that, after more than two decades as one of the greatest pure thrash metal bands of all time, Sodom might be ready to slow down. Think again!

Following on the success of "M-16" and the remarkable "Live In Bangkok," Sodom is back with another load of bricks. Tom Angelripper and company know only one mode, and that is fast and heavy. Angelripper's voice sounds better than ever. His bandmates simply crush steel beside him.

Sodom does not do "mall metal" or "nu-metal." This is real, thunderous, uncompromising HEAVY METAL! The way it should be.

Sodom have always been my favorite German thrash band. Over the years they have consistently put out great albums, although 'get what you deserve' was a pretty weak cd, all others have been solid. This band has been around for close to 25 years and are one of the few bands that have been around this long that still thrashes. Their last cd the amazing M-16 was so incredible I was skeptical that the band could top that. While this cd is excellent it does not quite reach the level of M-16, which would have been a huge feat in and of itself. Overall the musicanship has gotten better with this self-titled cd. The opening song 'blood on your lips' is midpaced, something us Sodom fans are not used to. I am used to a thrashy song from Sodom starting things off. However the change is not all that bad considering the song is excellent and catchy. Wanted Dead is the second track and like the other reviewer said this is one of the fastest tunes Sodom has ever done. The song rages through and through. Their are more mid-paced songs on this cd, than one would come to expect from Sodom, but there are still plenty of thrash tunes, as well. Their is also an emphasis on guitar soloing and the guitars are more pronounced than before. Angelripper's vocals still sound like shards of glass on your skin and this line-up crushes. They are tight and work well together. Anyway this is a more Mature sounding Sodom and an excellent follow-up to M-16. The cover on this cd also is brutal and the molten lava Sodom logo is really cool.
