3.0 out of 5 stars Intense German Thrash 5 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This CD combines the first 2 releases by the pride of the Ruhr, Sodom.Their debut mini-album, In The Sign Of Evil, is extremely fast and heavy, although it may have benefitted from guitarist Grave Violator (love that name!) using some decent pedals! The lyrics are definitely from the Venom school of Irreverence, containing such treasures as `My life begins at midnight twelve, masturbate to kill myself' (from `Blasphemer'), and such clever rhyming schemes as `Witch, bitch, no sleep in Sodom' (from `Witching Metal'), all barked out in a very disturbing guttural grunt. Unfortunately,as the new packaging does not have the lyric sheets that accompanied the original vinyl releases, deciphering the lyrics will prove an uphill struggle for the uninitiated.Also unfortunate regarding the packaging is the absence of the band pictures, especially those on `Ìn The Sign..',which include an Angelripper with a serious bowl haircut and an inverted crucifix practically embedded into his throat! Nevertheless,`In The Sign...' is a brilliant piece of intense Black Metal, and its power and speed make it one of the best releases of its type - certainly more intense than Kreator's debut (Endless Pain), fine and all a release as that was. However, what drags down the quality of this disc to a 3* rating is the inclusion of `Obsessed by Cruelty'. It proved to be a big disappointment for fans of their inspired debut.It's songs tend to sound poor and indistinct, and overall, almost tedious. It may be of interest to those who have the original European vinyl release from 1986 that what is contained on this disc is in fact the version that was released in the US at the time.Both contain the same songs, but with an obviously different sound. Thankfully, `In The Sign..' appears in its' brilliant original state. Sodom released many subsequent albums, of varying quality. However, if you love the likes of Venom, Possessed, Dark Angel, Bathory, Kreator, etc., make sure and get your hands on this, and their brilliant 3rd release, `Persecution Mania', the CD of which contains the great `Sodomy and Lust' ep,as well as a reworked `Outbreak of Evil' (from `In The Sign...'), and a very impressive rendition of Motorhead's `Iron Fist'. Finally, their `Agent Orange' Cd is also worth investigating, and contains a good cover of Tank's `Don't Walk Away'. Enjoy this legendary German band, and Witchhunter's outstanding drumming!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal german thrash!! \m/\m/ 10 May 2010
By Deimos - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Between Sodom, Destruction, and Kreator germany has a hell of alot to offer in the metal department. This album is excellent and you actually get the bonus Obsessed By Cruelty songs. The music here is amazing and some of the best thrash metal you will ever hear. Make way for SODOM! \m/\m/

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Market Material 30 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
A copy of this album got to El Salvador in 1987 and it became so popular as it was the only copy available in town. The price went up 10 times as the record was so good everyone wanted to have it. This album is a pioneer in the speed metal realm where Kreator and Slayer had also succeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wrong song titles... 12 July 2009
By Bilbo Baggins - Published on
When i got this I noticed that the song titles and the lyrics don't seem to match on some of the songs. 'Obsessed by cruelty' seems to have the words volcanic slut in it a whole bunch. 'Pretenders to the throne' is clearly 'Nuctemeron' and 'Witchhammer' is, well, you get the idea. Anyway, onto the album itself, it is a pretty vicious album with some nice brutal riffage. It also has some pretty silly lyrics ("read satanic bible with f---ing groan" you do what now?) But that just adds to the fun.

So, after listening to the album a bit I was able to work out a quick 'translation guide' Deathlike Silence=Intro
Obsessed by cruelty=Volcanic slut
Equinox=Proselytism Real
Proslytism Real=Brandish The Sceptre
Brandish The Sceptre= Deathlike silence
Fall of majesty town=Obsessed by cruelty
Nuctemeron=Fall of majesty town
Pretenders to the throne=Nuctemeron
Witchhammer=Pretenders to the throne
Volcanic slut=Witchhammer
Hope that helps anyone with similar issues.
