Latest Release

Tom plays

Tom Angelripper splits up with Bernemann & Makka
New line-up to be announced soon
All 2018 shows to take place as announced

The new year has started with a bang for all Sodom fans: vocalist/bassist Tom Angelripper has split up with guitarist Bernd "Bernemann" Kost and drummer Markus "Makka" Freiwald. "After much thought and reflection I have decided on this difficult step to pave the way for new challenges," explains Tom. "Sodom have always lived off the commitment and passion of everybody involved. Makka was part of the band for almost eight years, Bernemann even for more than twenty. To obviate a possible routine setting in which would make it impossible to continue our creative work optimally, I would like to start all over again with fresh and hungry musicians. At the same time I would like to say thank you to Bernemann and Makka for many successful years in which we performed fantastic shows and released a number of real metal manifestos."

Irrespective of this spectacular line-up change, all scheduled Sodom shows will take place from April 2018 as announced. Tom is set to introduce his new comrades-in-arms at the Full Metal Mountain. Whether Sodom will continue to operate as a trio or perhaps become a quartet in future remains unclear. Tom: "I haven't really made up my mind in this respect, I'm open to all options. I will now install the band's new foundation pillars and look around for new musicians. One thing is already clear: Sodom will become even stronger!"

Together with his new line-up, Tom wants to start working on the upcoming album - to be released on Steamhammer/SPV - as soon as possible. Tom: "SPV also look forward to our future collaboration and expect a totally motivated band."

Det var med ett tungt hjärta vi var tvungna att ställa in Black Christmass.
Men efter mycket rotande, tänkande och förhandlande har vi nu kommit på en alternativ lösning.
I Arbis klassiska och anrika lokaler kan vi erbjuda några av de hetaste namnen som skulle spelat på Black Christmass, så med stotlhet presenterar vi nu, till fredagen den 15 december 2017:
Tyska Sodom, med grymma Tom Angelripper i spetsen, firar i år 35 år sedan bandets debut - demon "Witching metal". Sedan dess har de levererat sin brutala thrash metal med inslag av oi!-takter nästintill oavbrutet. Sodom gav ett bejublat gig på Black Christmass redan år 2014, och med tanke på den succén så är det gjutet att de får komma tillbaka till vårt alter ego i år!
