Album Review

Sure to rile self-righteous prudes everywhere, Deathwitch's none-too-subtle Violence, Blasphemy, Sodomy is the sort of sonic middle-finger that makes any wizened old metalhead smile with mischievous glee and pine for the olden days. Which is just as well, given the Swedish outfit specializes in retro-fitted thrash with early death and black metal trimmings, thumbing their noses at current production standards preferred by neo-thrash bands such as Arch Enemy or the Haunted to serve up a barbed-wire dessert platter that's impossible to stop chomping, even as it mangles your insides on the way down! Case in point: standouts cuts like "Flamethrower Carnival," "Total Morbid," and "Death Maniac," which mingle utmost simplicity with unapologetic (and almost unremitting) aggression, their insane thrashings and tormented rasps even recalling old-school Sarcofago for their wonderful crudeness. Not to be outdone, additional rough nuggets like "Blood Sucking F**k," "Bitchfinger," and the self-explanatory "F**k off and Die" are worth a barrel of laughs. And any time heavy metal can muster a little humor is, of course, a welcome occasion. Admittedly, such loyalty to the spirit of straightforward structures leads to a few repetitive songs along the way, but occasional and discreet detours such as the moody instrumental interlude "Lord of Ymodos" and the brilliantly named and doom-leaning "Coffin Fornicator," never quite let the ship run aground. Instead, Violence, Blasphemy, Sodomy wastes not a second of the listener's time during its 14 songs and 40 minutes, leaving only the wish to go right back to the front and start head-banging all over again.

One of two key side projects for Sacramentum guitarist/vocalist Niklas "Terror" Rudolfsson (the other being death/doomsters Runemagick), Sweden's Deathwitch play deliberately coarse and unrefined thrash metal with deathly overtones and a shocking, intentionally moronic mix of Satanic and scatological lyrics recalling older Scandinavian and Brazilian acts from the mid to late 1980's. Initially formed in 1996 with the help of vocalist Reaper (also Bewitched), guitarist Alf Necrohell (a.k.a. Runemagick...
