For all of their acknowledged contributions to the death metal genre in its late-‘80's infancy, the fact remains that Germany's Sodom were, in essence, a thrash and speed metal band, ever bound to the mindset of an earlier, pre-death generation. So it was surprising, but not altogether shocking, in the wake of their touring humiliation by Brazilian death giants Sepultura, when Sodom attempted to make the transition from thrash to death themselves with 1992's Tapping the Vein.

Tapping the Vein is the fifth album by the German thrash metal band Sodom. This album shows more of a death metal influence compared to previous albums. Lineup: Chris Witchhunter (Christian Dudeck) - Drums Tom Angelripper (Thomas Such) - Vocals, Bass Andy Brings - Guitars. Recorded at Dierks Studios III, Cologne & Musiclab, Berlin, 1. - 1.

Tapping the Vein is what happens when you take the band's tranquilizers and rabies shots and replace them with a massive pallet of steroids and crack-cocaine. If there is anything that this album teaches us, it is that the crazier the riffs, the faster the tempos, the more unhinged the structures, and the heavier the drums, the better.
