SODOM frontman Thomas "Tom Angelripper" Such has slammed CELTIC FROST and VENOM for their comeback attempts, claiming that neither band is worthy of the attention being given to them by the metal media and fans alike. In a brand-new interview with the German webzine Terrorverlag (web site), Angelripper had the following to say when asked about both bands' upcoming albums and touring plans (translated from German):On CELTIC FROST: "I don't know what to think about that. The last few albums they released as CELTIC FROST were crap. OK, I'm sure that they are making a great [new] album, but I can't really trust them, coming back after all these years. . . Now they're getting a huge push, playing as headliners at the Wacken Open Air and Rock Hard Open Air festivals. We in SODOM have been playing and working our asses off non-stop for 25 years and we've never been invited to play the Rock Hard Festival! That really sucks! Maybe we should take a break for 15 years and then come back in wheelchairs. I'm sure then we would get a chance to play at some of those festivals!" On VENOM: "I've heard some of the new songs and they do not come close to 'Welcome to Hell', 'Possessed', 'Black Metal' or 'At War with Satan' in any way. Their time is over! The entire thing seems to me to be about making some quick money." To read the entire interview (in German), click here. SODOM's new self-titled album is scheduled for release in Germany on April 21, in Europe April 24 and in the USA May 9 via SPV Records. (Thanks: Shenia)
