Sodom's new album details

Posted by miray on 10/02/06

It’s been a long wait for the fans, but now Sodom are ready to present their latest recording at last: the German thrash metal legends are scheduled to release their new album with the plain but unequivocal title "Sodom" in Germany on April 21st 2006, in Europe April 24th 2006 and in the USA May 9th 2006. “Every band needs a self-titled album at least once in their career,” band mastermind Tom Angelripper points out, adding that the twelve new tracks will contain pure thrash metal in its most dynamic incarnation. “We have to apologize to our fans that the album didn’t come out sooner, but the work on our DVD, Lords Of Depravity Part I, was so time-consuming that things took a little longer than expected.” However, the band featuring singer/bass player Tom Angelripper, guitarist Bernemann and drummer Bobby Schottkowski will make the long wait worthwhile for their fan community with an offering that could hardly be more straightforward or determined. “We wanted to prove to the world what we can do, that’s why we decided to roll up our sleeves and pool our strengths.”

The current Sodom line-up has proved to be the most consistent in the band’s history. “The team Angelripper/Bernemann/Schottkowski will celebrate its anniversary this year: We’ve been together for ten years,” explains Tom, who is determined to continue to sail into the wind with his band in an increasingly short-lived world, not deviating from his present course when it comes to Sodom’s lyrics. “I’ve always written about things that go on in the world, the injustice and mistakes that happen everywhere. I know that you can’t change anything politically, but I would at least like to make clear where I stand and raise people’s awareness of those deplorable

states of affair.” Sodom was recorded and mixed at the premises of an old friend: Andy Brings. The former Sodom guitarist produced the new album at his Midas Twins studios in Hagen, Germany, together with sound engineer Haan Hartmann, bringing out the best in the musicians. “Andy did a great job and really lured the optimum performance out of me. Our new album proves that you don’t necessarily have to go to

an American studio to get a good sound. Sodom was mastered by Eroc, drummer with German rock cult band, Grobschnitt.
