The close relationship between a metal band and its fans can be measured by – among other things – how long they make their supporters wait for new songs. So looking at it from that perspective, Sodom are definitely exemplary seeing that they’ve always supplied their huge following with new material at regular intervals. The release of their current album ‘Decision Day’ was followed – in time for their major European tour in December 2018 – by the EP ‘Partisan’.
Now the Gelsenkirchen thrash metal act surrounding figurehead Tom Angelripper (vocals, bass) presents itself from its generous side again: Even before work on their upcoming album is set to commence, Sodom are ready to unleash their brand-new mini-album ‘Out Of The Frontline Trench’. Tom calls the recording “a sign of life for our fans”, having cut, together with his guitarists Frank Blackfire and Yorck Segatz plus drummer Husky, three new songs as well as two classics (one of them re-recorded, the other one a live number), ‘Out Of The Frontline Trench’ forging an arch between (Sodom’s) past, present and future.
“Out Of The Frontline Trench” will be released through SPV/Steamhammer on November 22nd, 2019 as CD DigiPak, 12″ green vinyl, download and stream:
01. Genesis 19 6:42 (brand new track taken from the upcoming 2020 album)

Some have even said that his favorite artist is Chesney Hawke!
