Sodom Reveal Details For New EP “Bombenhagel”

Sodom have revealed the details for their new EP “Bombenhagel.” The effort will be released on August 20 and it will feature three songs including the title track, “Coup De Grace,” and “Pestiferous Posse.” Tom Angelripper said the following about the effort:

“Originally we had planned to bring out the record in time for this year’s summer festival season, including a sticker with all confirmed tour dates. Of course, the way it looks at the moment, all festivals will be postponed until 2022. But the EP will be released anyway, as a sign of life. As a signal to our fans: We’re still around! The story continues.”

Sodom To Release New EP “Bombenhagel” In August

Sodom have announced that they will be releasing a new EP titled “Bombenhagel” on August 20. The band commented:

“In a period when other bands appear to remain stuck in anguish, 20 August 2021 will see Tom Angelripper and band members Frank Blackfire (guitar), Yorck Segatz (guitar) and Toni Merkel (drums) release their brand-new EP “Bombenhagel” via Steamhammer, available on CD, 12” vinyl and digital.

Sodom Premiere “Friendly Fire” Video

Sodom have premiered a new video for their new song “Friendly Fire.” This track is from the band’s new album “Genesis XIX,“ which will be released on November 27.

Tom Angelripper commented:

“So, here it is… my favorite on this album. I can hardly believe or indeed describe how much I love this song. I’m pretty sure it sets the direction for our next album. And in the meantime, I’m convinced that it’s the clever sequence and combination of notes in our twelve equal system that makes music (generally) so diverse. Lord, I wish we’d known that back then.

Often in a war situation, soldiers find themselves having to direct their weapons against their own comrades who are holed up close to enemy positions. These victims were accepted as part and parcel of the overall victory. Large numbers of supposed enemy planes were also shot down…”

Drummer Stefan “Husky” Hüskens Exits Sodom

Stefan “Husky” Hüskens has announced his departure from Sodom. The drummer is leaving the group “due to some changes at [his] full-time job and “a few other matters.”

Husky said the following:

“Unfortunately I have to tell you that I have to leave SODOM. Due to some changes at my full-time job, as well as a few other matters, I do not see any chance of continuing to crush the skins for SODOM in the future. I had a great time, I am proud of what we have achieved and I thank Tom, Yorck and Frank, and the entire crew for many extremely awesome moments. It was an honour to be part of one of my two all-time fave bands during the last two years.

There are always important decisions in life and this is one of them! Thanks for everything …

Lunatic Aggression of hardcore power!

Husky
January 2020”

Sodom added:

“We sincerely regret his decision, but we respect the inducing circumstances.

Sometimes even we have to admit that musical achievements are not everything in life. Against all odds of the modern music business, this music will forever enrich our lives. That has always been his motto.

We are looking back at two successful and crucial years, which have not only added to the history of our band, but will also shape it for years to come.

We wish him all the best for his musical, professional and private endeavours. He will of course remain a loyal colleague and trusted friend, backing us in word and deed with his musical expertise and vast knowledge of the metal scene.

Glückauf, dear Husky, as we use to say in the Ruhr Area!

See you soon

SODOM

All upcoming shows will take place as scheduled, a new drummer will be announced shortly.”
