If you have read the Bible then you would have surely come across Sodom and Gommorah, two cities which were famous or rather infamous for the wickedness of it's inhabitants. If you have not read the Bible but still you are a Metalhead then you must have surely heard of the Biblical Sodom's Thrash Metal counterpart - Sodom, which is as much notorious for it's music and Agent Orange was the high-point in this band's resume and it is the most successful Thrash album ever released by any German band and has, till date, sold over 100,000 copies worldwide.

Rating: 10 Blackfire rules! Best Sodom album, definitely.

  Agreed, best work yet

Rating: 8 Hmm...I find this album slightly overrated! (puts flame suit on) I prefer Better Off Dead myself, and some of the later albums, like Code Red. The title track, Tired And Red, and Exhibition Bout though, are absloute classic thrash songs though, and among Sodom's best! Frank Blackfire was just what the band needed at that point. This album, and Persecution Mania were far superior to what came before them! xD

  Best thrash album I heard in a while. Vocals slightly weak though...

Rating: 8 Pretty good but not as great as I was expecting. My leaast favorite aspect is the constant changes in speed......JUST STAY FAST.

It gives you time to bob your head for a minute before wrecking your neck again.

  I agree the vocals are a tad weak. That live vid of Agent Orange on youtube. Man I wish it sounded like that.

I feel they're kind of uninspired. Like they lack the thrashing energy that would make you headbang like crazy.

  Its in fact Persecution mania 2, but more mature and with a clearer production.With Extreme agression the best thrash metal album of 1989.

Rating: 7 This album makes war seem like a great adventure, which is not so

Overrated but even very good
agent orange(song) sounds a little bit like death squad from sacred reich


A little bit? Its exactly the same riff, the intro to that song is a slightly modified version of 'In My Darkest Hour' (Megadeth). They imitated many other riffs from other bands too.

Rating: 8 Probably my favorite thrash metal album...

Rating: 10 By far, one of the best thrash metal album I've heard...

Rating: 8 I've stopped listening to a lot of old school thrash but some albums like this and mostly Slayer's back catalog still get some attention. Too good to forget about.
