SODOM Has 'Seven Or Eight Songs' Written For Next Album

SODOM Has 'Seven Or Eight Songs' Written For Next Album

On June 19, Metal Maniac video magazine conducted an interview with Thomas "Angelripper" Such, bassist/vocalist of veteran German thrashers SODOM, at Hellfest in Clisson, France. You can now watch the chat below.

Speaking about SODOM's plans to record a new studio album, Angelripper said: "We have already a lot of good [new] songs [written] together — like, I think, seven or eight songs. And at this time we're working [on] pre-production. For this album, there's really something special. We don't have any pressure; we don't have any dictation from a record company: 'Bring it out now.' I told the record company, 'We'll do the pre-production and then we can talk about a release.' But I think it's gonna be April or May of next year."

He continued: "This album will be definitely the most old-school and heaviest SODOM album ever. Because we produce it ourselves. We don't have any big producer. Like, [former SODOM collaborator] Waldemar Sorychta is a good producer, but we have so much own ideas to bring to the table. It's going really [back] to the old days of SODOM."

SODOM's latest album, "Epitome Of Torture", was made available on April 29, 2013 in Europe and May 7, 2013 in North America via SPV/Steamhammer. Angelripper, guitarist Bernd "Bernemann" Kost and new drummer Markus "Makka" Freiwald recorded a total of twelve new tracks (plus a MOTÖRHEAD cover) which "present SODOM as more diverse and multi-faceted than ever," according to a press release.
