1989 - Agent Orange.
way more Helter Skelter.

June 1, 1989 - 2024: 35 years of: Agent Orange.

The other German attack.

After 1987's dark thrashmetal Persecution Mania LP, the rabid speed rage would now burn a hole through the ozone-layer like no one. Third LP, twice heavy, one revolution ...SODOM spreads the poison.

The onslaught starts as soon as the "Agent Orange" is diffused across the scene. Still airborne and still obsessed by cruelty, the AC-47 flies into high-gear with "Tired And Red", the speedmetal "Exhibition Bout" and the German sung punkrock "Ausgebombt".

The mosh fiend "Remember The Fallen" and riff-o-rama of "Baptism Of Fire" pushes eardrums and stamina to the break-point.

While global thrashmetal was commercially on top, courtesy of the Big Four, the teutonic terror of SODOM kept the underground hot and sweaty. The casualties are immense, still those to blame:
    - Angelripper on bass and vokills
    - Whichhunter on drums
    - Blackfire on guitar, his last as he would soon join KREATOR, until his 2018 return to the fold.
An updated squadron would crack the new decade with 1990's Better Off Dead CD.

RIP Witchhunter (1965-2008)
