||The mighty German thrashers, Sodom, are back with another tantalizing
CD. Their latest CD is called "M-16" and they still have
the power and fury like they always have. The band continues to
be loud, tough, troublesome, and totally committed. Sodom has prepared
eleven tracks and forty-nine minutes of music to celebrate their
twentieth year of existence. The songs on this disk get stuck in
your head they are so catchy. "Napalm In The Morning"
is a great songs influenced by the band's travel to Southeast Asia,
including Thailand and Vietnam. Other good songs include "Among
The Weirdcong," "Minejumper," the title track "M-16,"
"Lead Injections," and another one of my favorites "Marines."
Sodom ends the disk with a cover of a song by The Trashmen called
"Surfin' Bird." Even though it's a weird song, the way
Sodom plays it seems as if it was written to be played as a metal
song, it's a great cover. After all these years the band continues
to be strong, hopefully they can keep it going because I can't get
enough of these metalheads.
