Sodom’s New Song Will Bring You to Your “Knees”
The somewhat-newly-revamped Sodom will release a new EP, Out of the Frontline Trench, on November 22 via eOne in North America and SPV/Steamhammer in Europe… which is almost exactly one year to day since the Teutonic thrashers released their last EP, Partisan. And like Partisan, Trench will feature a mix of old shit and new shit — specifically, in this case, the new songs “Genesis,” “Down on Your Knees,” and the title track, as well as a re-recording of “Agent Orange,” originally from the 1989 album of the same name, and a live recording of “Bombenhagel,” from ’87’s Persecution Mania.
The band has now released the second of those three new songs via the below lyric video. Says frontman Tom Angelripper of the track:
“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.”
Interesting. When I want a vague idea of what it was like to be a soldier leaving the trench for a life-threatening battle, I make myself listen to Hollywood Undead. That shit will give you a panic attack every time.
ANYWAY, Sodom promise to release a new full-length, Genesis 19, in 2020. In the meantime, you can pre-order Out of the Frontline Trench here.
