"Sodom have always been an enigma for me. Being an American fan, I have never seen them live nor seen any video/film/moving pictures of them of any kind, until now. All I ever had were their albums, which until recently, were very tough to come by.
This DVD is great. A lot of the 'mystery' is solved. The only tough part is that the 3 hour documentary is entirely in German (with subtitles), so its a bit tough to sit through. (Some of the subtitles flash by very quickly so you'll wear out your 'back' button on the DVD remote.)
But, overall, you get the story: Living through the 80's and the early thrash metal scene, Tom 'Angelripper' Such rising from a mine worker to playing music in front of tens of thousands of fans, the revolving door and cast of characters of ex members giving their insight into this landmark metal band....
The concert disc is top notch. Great sound, great camera work, great performance...
We await Part 2. And we await the promise that Sodom will finally do a major tour of the USA!"
About time we get this DVD!

"Sodom is back with their first ever double DVD titled "Lords of Depravity: Part 1"! After releasing their much successful M-16 album back in 2001, fans around the world have been hungry for some new Sodom material to hit the streets. Now just in time right before Sodom's release of their next studio masterpiece, currently due later this year, we get this monster of a DVD! Tom Angelripper (bass, vocals) have put blood, sweat and tears to compile the enormous amount of material for the DVD, and this is only just part 1!
The first disc of the package contains over 3 hours of documentary material spanning Sodom's career from 1982 up to 1995. After having seen it, I am still amazed just how much detailed it is. Pretty much all the previous members of the band are back to tell their side of the story. You will see now just interviews with previous Sodom members but also rare live and on the road footage from the 80's and 90's with many rare never-before-seen photos and the impact Sodom had on the thrash scene not just in Germany but also around the world.
Second disc of the package contains over 2 hours of live material with the present Sodom line-up. A lot of Sodom classics captured during the band's return to Bulgaria as well as from the biggest metal festivals in Germany.

"This is a surprisingly good video. I have been a fan of Sodom for a long time and of much of the old school German metal scene. I did not know what to expect of the performance, as I have never seen Sodom (I live in the US) and I did not know what to expect in terms of production quality as often these can be obviously low-budget affairs. Not this one. Great performance, and informative history.
Even the videos at the end are really entertaining and refreshingly artful and even funny. Definitely a cut way way above most DVDs aimed at the metal market.
I highly recommend it."
