  • SEPULTURA at Irving Plaza 3/15/22

    “Solid and original, old and memorable. We grew up with them since 1987 with ‘Morbid Visions’  and no matter what they have put in their minds to push forward during the last 20 years of their journey, we have found that they have become a wall of sound more concentrated and more technical than ever before. We hope they can keep up for another 20 years more”.

  • MIDNIGHT at Irving Plaza 3/27

    ‘For us they are still one of the most surprising acts that we have ever caught in action. Our second chance shooting Midnight in NYC and the were outstanding. 


    From rock and roll to thrash metal vibes and the good looks of medieval executioners,  Midnight brings the best of us even in cold night like that one.


    They need to get bigger and bigger and make for the three of their musicians a journey of metal music and fans. Hope they come back around soon.’

Recorded by the band’s Chris Whited at 1776 Recordings with drums engineered by Neil Westfall and Bud Phillips at The Unicorn Room, and guitars re-amped by Phil Pluskota at Sonic Assault Studio, the record is callously grim, ferocious, and threatening, crackling beneath the weight of its own fury and power. BODYSNATCHER’s Bleed-Abide puts the “core” back in deathcore.

  • SODOM to Release ‘40 Years At War - The Greatest Hell Of Sodom’, 40th Anniversary Album


    40 years of Sodom, 40 years of ruthless thrash metal ‘Made in Germany’. 

    What came into being in 1982 in Gelsenkirchen-Buer has lost nothing of its authenticity and rawness, not even four decades later. Tom Angelripper and his men still spearhead a music style that draws its energy from pure determination, intransigence and relentlessness. 

    What’s more, Sodom never fails to surprise their fans all over the world. ‘40 Years at War – The Greatest Hell of Sodom’, is a more than worthy anniversary album that – in various formats – sums up the band`s history in an unusual and highly ambitious way. “Our goal was to re-record one song from each of our previous albums,” Tom explains. “Not necessarily the most obvious ones, we wanted to go for rarities or tracks we`ve never or very rarely played live.” 

    The CD and vinyl double LP with their martial cover artwork penned by Eliran Kantor (Kreator, Testament, GWAR, among others) include 17 tracks, all newly recorded by the current Sodom line-up featuring Frank Blackfire (guitars), Yorck Segatz (guitars) and Toni Merkel (drums). Tom: “We cover the songs unaltered, that’s to say: in exactly the same key and with the original lyrics. We’re better musicians now than we were back then, of course, so the new versions sound tighter and more up-to-date but the arrangements of the songs were deliberately kept unchanged.”

    The band`s 40th anniversary festivities will be carried over into their concerts in the coming fall. “We’ll not only play the Sodom classics, but also consider fan requests. We`re launching a poll about songs we`ve rarely or never played live on a tour to find out which ones the fans want to hear.”

    That's exactly what Sodom is about: being close to their fans, full of ideas, burning for action while keeping their eyes on the goal ahead. Tom: “If you want to draw a summary of the past four decades, it can only be this: 40 years later, and we’re still here!”
