Sodom - Genesis XIX

 

Man - Sodom are just the best. Literally as I was halfway through the first track on Genesis XIX I said to myself, 'This band is so good.' You can't contain the glory that is a new Sodom album - the bands first full length in four years, and first with the legendary Tom Angelripper sporting a brand new lineup. Though he's released some EP's with a few of these guys before, it's really exciting to hear the thrashers at their best on this new album. They have a sound that is solidly their own and it's a thrill to dive into the pit with the madmen. 

Genesis XIX represents a weirdly diverse step forward for Sodom. While this is certainly not a sort of step back, it just sees the group willing to bring in a few more rock oriented touches, and even hinting at doom metal on the crushing intro of 'The Harpooneer.' While yes the band is thrilling and over the top, Genesis XIX  shows that there is an interesting new era to come for Sodom, even as they embrace the fifth decade of their existence. They understand the raw rock fury of the thing and are unforgiving in their desire to go for the throat. This is a veritable lightning storm of thrash metal energy, but the band shows they can bring in so much more than that when they need too. 

Sodom have outdone themselves here. An unrelenting release schedule and dynamic approach to the genre has given us some of the bands freshest material in ages. There's something weirdly reassuring in the fact that despite it all, Tom Angelripper is still REALLY fucking angry. The bloodthirst throughout this album is palpable, and the performances are all around thrilling. Sodom want you to get in the fucking pit and to suffer with them. If you're not ready for the madness and mayhem, then German thrash metal is not for you.
