Poison (Ger) - Sons Of Evil (1984)

Poison (Ger) - Sons Of Evil (1984)

The first time I ever heard this demo was after hearing their later output.  At first I found this to be almost unlistenable, but over time it grew on me.  Although, without a doubt, sometimes this makes Hellhammer's demos sound a bit like Van Halen.  I love I though, you can really tell these guys just wanted to be Venom, especially in the track Leather And Metal, which just sounds like they copied In League With Satan.  Not a bad thing at all!  It starts off slow with The Omen but then goes absolutely bat shit crazy as soon as it hits the second track Inferno Breaks Out.  I would have really liked to hear some of these tracks played and recorded later on in the band's life as they progressed a lot with every demo they did.

I currently have no tape deck with which to record with, but earlier this year the demo was finally released on LP.  It sounds exactly the same as the demo so it doesn't have much better quality, but why would you want that?  I was pretty disappointed with the artwork too.  Only the Die Hard edition came with the original tape artwork, and they were limited to 50 and sold out in about 3 seconds.  Now cunts are trying to sell them for upwards of $150.  Fuck that, you can almost buy the original tape for that much if you feel like wasting that much money on a piece of plastic.
