The German titans return with their sixteenth studio effort entitled “Genesis XIX”. This is the first time in Sodom’s history that they have recorded as a quartet rather than a trio. Moreover, this is the first album to feature returning guitarist Frank Blackfire since the famous “Agent Orange” back in 1989. With his re-entry after almost thirty years and the merge with new blood in the roster, the expectations for this new release would naturally be higher than before. “Genesis XIX” features two new musicians, drummer Toni Merkel and guitarist Yorck Segatz as well.

The most enjoyable aspect is that vocalist Phily Byrne is the clear standout, including a number of falsetto screams, showing his recovery from vocal surgery in 2012 is now fully complete.
Anthrax is more than deserving of their placement in the Big 4 of Thrash. Basically revolutionizing, if not inventing, their own brand of fast-paced, crossover sound, they have remained one of those bands that are the very definition of Thrash as a fun genre.
This album will appeal to Savage Messiah fans who have been there since the very beginning and should attract a new and much wider audience.
Though it sounds like I didn’t like the album, that couldn’t be further from the truth. I just didn’t love it near as much as the first one.
