SODOM OBSESSED BY CRUELTY reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
A brief burst of thrash metal heavily tinged by the early black metal of Bathory, Hellhammer and the band's own In the Sign of Evil EP, Obsessed By Cruelty may not be the most technically proficient album in terms of production quality, but like the early Venom albums it evokes a chaotic, ragged aesthetic perfectly in keeping with the atmosphere the band are going for. I don't think it's quite as good as the band's later thrash efforts which would see their lyrical focus turn from religion-bashing to warfare, but it is a substantial improvement over the In the Sign of Evil EP and an interesting slice of metal history to boot, particularly considering the influence it had over Mayhem in their formative years.
