Destruction (Ger) - Sentence Of Death (1984)

Destruction (Ger) - Sentence Of Death (1984)

If there ever was a record that influenced my earliest teen years then it was this.  The music, the cover art, my love of the EP format, just all of it.  How many bullet belts were sold after this was released? I know after just looking at this I went and got one straight away.  Definitely a big influence on me and another favourite band of mine, Sarcofago, that's for sure.  It's a shame that they re-recorded Mad Butcher later on and made it so boring.  This is raw and evil, the only way it should sound.  Not quite as sewer sounding as what Sodom was doing, just a bit of a step up from that.  These guys could play and they definitely didn't over play.

If that cover art just wasn't enough for you, there was a variation used on the US release by Metal Blade.  Every photo shoot needs a fake plastic skeleton.
