I listened to the disc set first, and man-o-man did the production values rock. I have the original release of "Persecution Mania", an all digital recording (DDD) that sounded a bit thin for thrash metal. The remastering in this set, however, is superb!! My stereo may be better or worse than other fans, but I assure you, with 15 carefully selected tracks per disc, there is enough from the band's history to sate the appetite. The insert has commentary on the tracks and which album the song originally came on. The booklet too was extremely entertaining, although one-sided since no one else in the band contributed. I have never seen their DVD documentaries, but I am very curious to check them out now. Another useful tidbit is the extensive discography at the back of the booklet where I was floored by how many albums these guys recorded. I lost touch in the early 90s, although I mostly collect metal on vinyl now, whenever possible, sometimes CDs are your only option. THis set helps bridge that gap somewhat, and is far bettter than most shabby "best of" compilations that most fans of bands are conned into buying for a lame previously unreleased "hit". Not so here. Get this box set while you can I say.
In general, German-pressed vinyl is amongst the best on the planet and this set is no exception. Keep in mind though that the subtitle bootleg is just that. These are hardly recorded by Rolling Stone Mobile, but they don't sound like a handheld mike in the crowd either. There is so much to absorb, that I will be listening to these and probably updating this review in the days ahead. Make sure you can get the records washed because they have some dust and paper particles on board that the inherit static charge holds tight to.
This shiny deluxe 5-disc compilation box is a journey through their heydays and a well-deserved tribute to former drummer Christian "Witchunter" Dudek who sadly passed away september 7th, 2008. The noble-looking double vinyl set focuses on early rehearsal/live recordings of the times when the man was part of the line up (sound has been cleaned up wherever possible and the final result is powerful enough), whereas the 2-CD set gathers some of the best SODOM gems ever as picked up and compiled by leading singer/bassist Tom Angelripper himself, who even included some usually less known tracks next to evergreen classics such as "Christ passion", "The saw is the law" etc so as to give the buyer a wider listening experience covering all different eras in the history of the band. The last CD is actually the DLP put onto disc, just in case you don't own a turntable. Next you'll get a thick 32-page LP-sized booklet exploring SODOM's past with a rather in depth band bio and several cultish, never-seen before pics straight from the band's archives. If that's still not enough, you're provided with a sticker, postcard and a cool poster which will look just nice when hung on the wall next to your "Obsessed by Cruelty" vinyl.
At the price of less than $50 this box is a must for all SODOManiacs worldwide and sure value for the money, given this is more than just a simple "Best of" and actually includes several rare recordings that any true SODOM fan will enjoy listening to and which will appeal to both long-time fans and newcomers.
All hail SODOM, eternal kings of German Thrash Metal!
