  • 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!”

  • MAX & IGGOR ‘Return Beneath Arise’ at The Gramercy Theatre 05/31/22

    Nostalgia. I guess the first concert i‘ve been  lately where i knew all the songs. I mean all of them, did not happened since some decades before.

     

    It sounded close to perfect, i mean we are all human beings and the other half of that machine wasn’t there so it’s replacements did a hell of a job. But since you knew the songs by heart.. you felt the differences.

     

    I could say that i would want them back together but that is not the case, because they are on two different paths and that would be something i don’t thing will ever happen. Both parts have their own life now and that’s it. It was great to see them after all these years, it shows why they are so important for so many people.

     

    We only had the chance to shoot during one song from the pit only and of course lighting wasn’t meant for us… it is what it is. I took some more from the back of the venue and capture some videos. Find them on our channel on youtube.
