Sodom: Code Red

Sound — 10
Sodom is one of the most heavy thrash bands out there. Along with their german brothers Destruction and Kreator, they are pure raw violent thrash metal. This album is one of Sodom's best albums, and you can tell this album and even the band itself has been a huge influence on death metal. The sound on this album is great. The riffs are really aggressive and heavy, and the drums are good as well. The production is really good also.

Lyrics — 10
The lyrics on this album are typical thrash lyrics, War, Killing, anti-religion ect. Sodom's lyrics are pretty interesting to read though because the lyrics create some original concepts. The lyrics fit very well with the songs, and Tom Angelripper has a great voice for metal distorted yet loud and clear. His voice reminds me of Tom Araya from slayer.

Overall Impression — 10
This is a great album. If you love thrash, you have to buy this album. But this is not an album for people who are just getting into thrash. You have to really get into thrash metal to appreciate the sound on this album. If your a fan of Kreator, Destruction, or even Death, you'll love this album. If this album was stolen, I would catch the person and beat him up. The highlight tracks on this album are Code Red, What Hell Can Create, Tombstone, Liquidation, The Vice Of Killing, Visual Buggery, The Wolf And The Lamb, and Addicted To Abstinence.

    Addicted to Abstinence is propably one of my favourites...actually the entire album is gold, this and Tapping the Vein.
