Sodom mainman and sole remaining founding member Thomas “Angelripper” Such, has parted ways with drummer Markus “Makka” Freiwald and guitarist Bernd “Bernemann” Kost.

Says Tom Angelripper: “After much thought and reflection, I have decided on this difficult step to pave the way for new challenges. Sodom have always lived off the commitment and passion of everybody involved. Makka was part of the band for almost eight years, Bernemann even for more than twenty. To obviate a possible routine setting in which would make it impossible to continue our creative work optimally, I would like to start all over again with fresh and hungry musicians. At the same time, I would like to say thank you to Bernemann and Makka for many successful years in which we performed fantastic shows and released a number of real metal manifestos.”

Despite this lineup change, all planned Sodom shows will take place from April 2018 as announced. Tom is set to introduce his new brothers in crime at the Full Metal Mountain festival. Being asked if Sodom will continue to operate as a trio or perhaps will become a quartet remains uncertain.

Explains Angelripper:

“I haven’t really made up my mind in this respect; I’m open to all options. I will now install the band’s new foundation pillars and look around for new musicians. One thing is already clear: Sodom will become even stronger!”

Sodom tour dates:

Apr. 7 – AT – Kärnten – Full Metal Mountain
Jun. 21-23 – FI – Kauhajoki – Nummirock
Jun. 23 – DK – Copenhagen – Copenhell
Jul. 4-7 – DE – Ballenstedt – Rock Harz Open Air
Jul. 14 – SE – Gävle – Gefle Metal
Aug. 18 – AT – Graz – Metal On The Hill
Aug. 25 – DE – Cham – Mosh Club Open Air
Aug. 31 – DE – Hamburg – Weltturbojugendtage
Oct. 6 – DE – Lichtenfels – Way Of Darkness

– January 5th, 2018 –

During the recording sessions for Proponent for Sentience, Denver, CO’s Allegaeon recorded two Rush covers. Fans have already heard “Subdivisions”, which was included on the album and has since become the band’s most streamed track on Spotify. Today, in celebration of January 6, 2018, the date version of the band’s song 1.618, Allegaeon is releasing their cover of “Animate” worldwide on all digital music services. Listen to the song and stream/download from your preferred provider here:

Guitarist Greg Burgess elaborates: “When we settled on Rush to cover during the ‘Proponent‘ sessions, I simply couldn’t pick which song to do. ‘Subdivisions’ or ‘Animate.’ Both were favorites for me personally, and both were sort of ‘under the radar’ eg. not ‘Tom Sawyer’ or ‘Spirit of the Radio.’ Where the original idea was to do a cover for a Japanese bonus track, we figured if we did both we could cover a special song for both the Japan AND Europe pressing. Then the powers that be decided to just include ‘Subdivisions’ on the album, and keep ‘Animate’ in reserve for something. Jan 6th, 2018 is the only occurrence of the golden ratio in date form that will occur during our life time. So 1.6.18 seemed like the perfect date to release it in Allegaeon fashion.”

Proponent for Sentience was released in September of 2016. The album was produced by Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation) and is a complex, intelligent, and absorbing concept record that can rightfully sit alongside the true greats of the medium. Allegaeon will begin recording their fifth full-length album with Otero at Flatline Audio in March.
