Sodom – Genesis XIX Review

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.

Anthrax – Kings Among Scotland Review

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.
