- Track Listing
This German black metal/thrash trio was formed in 1983 by Tom Angelripper (bass, vocals), Aggressor (vocals, guitar) and Chris Witchhunter (drums), drawing inspiration from bands such as Motrhead, Anvil and Venom. Aggressor was replaced by the similarly pseudonymous Grave Violator on the agenda-setting debut EP, In The Sign Of Evil. By the time Obsessed By Cruelty emerged in 1986, Grave Violator had been replaced by Destructor. The latter was in turn replaced by Frank `Blackfire` Gosdzik on 1987`s Expurse Of Sodomy EP. Persecution Mania followed in the same year and marked a vast improvement over their debut, though lyrics had not moved on from obsessions with war, bloodlust and the black arts. Produced by Harris Johns, it had a crisp and powerful sound and was to become the band`s bestselling release.
Sodom toured Europe in 1988 with Whiplash and recorded Mortal Way Of Live, the first ever double live thrash album. Agent Orange followed in 1989 and they were supported by Sepultura on a European tour to help promote it. Michael Hoffman was recruited as the new guitarist when Blackfire left for Kreator in 1990, but was in turn replaced by Andy Brings on 1992`s Tapping The Vein. Following the release of this album long-time drummer Witchhunter was replaced by Atomic Steif. Further personnel changes included yet another guitar players, Strahli, on 1995`s Masquerade In Blood. The band`s first album for the Gun label, 1997`s `Til Death Do Us Unite, saw Angelripper joined by Bernemann (guitar) and Bobby Schottkowski (drums). The band continued to release a steady flow of albums during the late 90s and into the new millennium.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
