Staff review by
Who put death in my thrash metal? Or should I maybe ask who put thrash in my death metal? Well, the majority of the Sodom audience was less than impressed after the release of Better Off Dead, which was widely considered thin and weak, but let's also not forget that it had massive shoes to fill coming after the classic Agent Orange. The Germans decided to respond to the accusations of "turning soft" by delivering the ferocious and brutal Tapping The Vein, possibly the fastest and most extreme record in their career.

This is really good stuff. Just when other old thrash bands either broke up or stopped playing metal entirely, Sodom put in more steroids and got even ballsier than before. Tapping the Vein isn't best album around, but it sure gets the job done.
You've got a lot of guts. Let's see what they look like.
