Sodom Debut New Video “Friendly Fire”
Sodom have released a video for “Friendly Fire,” the latest single from their forthcoming sixteenth full-length studio album, Genesis XIX.
Says frontman Tom Angelripper of the track:
“So, here it is … my favorite on this album. I can hardly believe or indeed describe how much I love this song. I’m pretty sure it sets the direction for our next album. And in the meantime, I’m convinced that it’s the clever sequence and combination of notes in our twelve equal system that makes music (generally) so diverse. Lord, I wish we’d known that back then. Often in a war situation, soldiers find themselves having to direct their weapons against their own comrades who are holed up close to enemy positions. These victims were accepted as part and parcel of the overall victory. Large numbers of supposed enemy planes were also shot down…”
You can check out video below. It was directed by Moritz “Mumpi” Künster.
Genesis XIX will be released November 27 on eOne in North America and Steamhammer/SPV in Europe. Pre-order it here.
This will be Sodom’s first album since 2016’s Decision Day, Sodom’s first album with new members Yorck Segatz and Toni Merkel (who replace Bernd “Bernemann” Kost and Markus “Makka” Freiwald), Sodom’s first album with returning guitarist Frank “Blackfire” Gosdzik since Agent Orange (1989), and Sodom’s first album as a quartet and instead of a trio.
