The awe of love pulled out of the roots Just rolling thunder we found Pregnant with the tears of shame But never let 'em out. We shoot 'em down We shoot 'em down (down) We shoot 'em down, down, down, down. Free-fire zone with my M16 Vendetta burns inside Wiped out their lives for eyes unseen Mercy chilled to the freezing point to the wa. .Blind religion, clouded minds Called by the name of war Two thirty-two, body penetration Before you hit the ground

Thrash Metal Sodom (GER-1). Band Name Sodom (GER-1).
Maybe that's why I found the album "M-16" so interesting. I had never heard of the band Sodom before, until I was browsing the internet a few days back and stumbled across them. It listed them as 'Thrash' so I took a look into what they had done. Immediately, "M-16" caught my eye, just from the name of it. At first, I thought it was just a smart-use of well-known weapon name, but after reading about it, I understood that it was more. It was Sodom's attempt to recreate the Vietnam war through their music
The album title M-16 should say a lot about the album. The M-16 was a highly damaging weapon used by the majority of the US soldiers during the Vietnam War and that is pretty much the best way possible to describe this album. M-16 is a violent attack on the Vietnam War telling morbid stories of the situations soldiers found themselves in. To many, this may sound like a match made in heaven and they would not be wrong at all.
