From The Press Release
German Thrash Metal legends SODOM releases their new single and lyric video for the song “Down On Your Knees” a few days ago. This song is also included on the new EP “Out Of The Frontline Trench”, which will be released on November 22nd as CD-EP, 12″ vinyl and digital
Tom Angelripper says: “Postcards and letters from my granddad, which I discovered among the things he left behind when he died, and some TV documentaries have given me a vague idea of what it must have been like for soldiers back in those days to leave their trenches and face those life-threatening battles.”
From The Previous Press Release
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.
