Sodom Look to Turn Back the Clock with 1982 EP


Though today’s thrash metal scene is full of killer bands and absolute bangers being produced on the regular, for many people the peak moment of the genre came in the early 80s. For German thrash stalwarts Sodom, who’ve been around since the early days, they’re looking to take it back with a new EP aptly titled 1982.

Featuring five songs, including the previously released (yet newly remixed) title track, frontman Tom Angelripper said this EP is a love letter to the band’s early years.

“Basically, we chose the wrong key, but we weren’t about musical correctness, we were all about attitude. We were against the establishment, we were in trouble with our teachers and training supervisors because, in their opinion, we wore the wrong clothes and listened to the wrong kind of music. At vocational college, I was the only one into metal. All the others listened to New Wave or Neue Deutsche Welle.”

The new EP will be released on November 10 through SPV/Steamhammer, but you can preorder and pre-save your copy today. Exclusive colored vinyl variants can also be copped at the Napalm Records shop, while an exclusive 12″ vinyl and CD/LP Bundle with a T-shirt can only be had at the Steamhammer shop.

In addition to the EP, the band is going to head out on a long line of tour dates throughout Europe before crossing the pond for a couple shows. The full list of dates can be found below.

1982 Track List:
1. 1982 (Remix)
