Not a God, Just an Executioner

Rated 3.71/5 (74.29%) (14 Votes)

One look at this album's cover and you'll know who this band worships, and their sound is pure Sodom-worship out of the old days, so it's not just their art that screams In The Sign Of Evil. This is a Finnish band made up of two brothers who seem as dedicated as possible to mining right down to the roots of the Thrash tree to see what kind of twisted, malformed creature they can mine out.

This has everything you would expect: muffled production, flailing energy, fistfuls of riffs and iffy vocals. Some of the riff work on here is really good, just as some of the yelping vocals are pretty bad, but the whole thing does manage a fevered, underground energy that makes it enjoyable because of its flaws, rather than in spite of them. If you love vintage Sodom as much as these guys do, then get this and buckle the fuck up.
