In 1986, SODOM unleashed two different and distinct studio recordings of their debut album Obsessed By Cruelty - version one released by Metal Blade in the US and the second released by Steamhammer in Germany. On the 30th anniversary of the album’s original release, both versions of the debut full-length album by German thrash pioneers SODOM appear together for the first time ever in one comprehensive collection. Fully remastered and packaged in a deluxe gatefold jacket featuring several previously unreleased period photos, this deluxe 30th Anniversary edition is a mandatory volume in any self-respecting metal maniac’s record collection.
Both versions of the legendary album being made available on vinyl again for the first time since 1986.
Deluxe packaging includes a full color gatefold jacket and lyric insert, jam-packed with previously unpublished photos hand-picked by the band from the Obsessed By Cruelty era.
Considered one of the Big Four Teutonic Thrash bands, along with fellow German metal legends KREATOR, DESTRUCTION and TANKARD, SODOM have released nearly 20 albums with total sales of more than one million records.
The Wax Maniax exclusive edition is available on “graveyard mist” colored vinyl and includes a reproduction of the original 1986 press kit. Presale begins Thursday, February 25th.
