German thrash metal legends Sodom originally formed in 1981, taking inspiration from bands such as Motörhead, Venom, Tank, Accept, and AC/DC. Sodom's pioneering musical style has subsequently influenced countless black, death and thrash metal bands for over three decades and counting. To date, Sodom has released fourteen studio albums, three live albums, two compilation albums and six EPs. They achieved their first commercial success with their third studio album Agent Orange, which was the first thrash metal album to enter the German album charts, where it reached No. 36. Sodom remains one of the bestselling thrash metal acts of all time, having sold over one million records. For the first time ever, both unique studio recordings (U.S. and German) of the band's seminal debut full length, Obsessed By Cruelty, is presented in one comprehensive collection. Both versions of the legendary album are being made available on vinyl for the first time since 1986.
