Attention all Sodom fans, there’s exciting news from Tom Angelripper & Co. On the one hand, the band are currently at the studio to record new material, on the other their next shows are scheduled for early September, and the end of November will see the start of their extensive MTV Headbangers Ball Tour 2018 alongside Exodus, Death Angel and Suicidal Angels.

And as if that wasn’t enough great news, the best bit of intelligence comes directly from the thrash metal act’s inner circle…

“We’re a real family again,” enthuses frontman Angelripper following the band’s lineup change in spring 2018. “We all really enjoy the new lineup consisting of Frank Blackfire (guitar, ex-Sodom, ex-Kreator, Assassin), Yorck Segatz (guitar, Beyondition), Husky (drums, Asphyx, Desaster) and myself. There’s a real team spirit again, we’re having a great time together, every one of us is interested in everything and – really important! – everybody is there for everybody else. Obviously that kind of atmosphere is bound to have a positive effect on the songwriting.”

Examples? Sodom’s new Partisan EP will be out in November, featuring three tracks including a live recording from this year’s Rock Hard Festival. The new lineup could hardly present itself in a more impressive manner!

Partisan will be released through SPV/Steamhammer on November 23rd as CD digipak, 10″ clear vinyl, download and stream.

Since their return to the stages of this world in 2016 at the “Frost & Fire” festival in Ventura, CA, Cirith Ungol has also played many successful festival shows in Europe. Due to the incredible demand and enthusiastic reactions from the fans, Cirith Ungol has decided to start writing and rehearsing a new song. The band now proudly unleashes their first studio recording since Paradise Lost in 1991!

The band comments: “‘Witch’s Game’ was forged for the upcoming animated movie ‘Planet of Doom’. Since we reunited in 2015, there was always a question if we would release new material. It was always on the top of our minds, and when approached to write a song that would be featured in this amazing movie, we agreed. We had already been working on songs for our 5th studio album and this was a perfect opportunity to dip our hooves back in the lake of fire! We are all very excited about the band’s future and hope you like this sampling of what we have been brewing in our secret lair!”

Swiss heavy metal legends Krokus has announced that they will be embarking on a headlining world tour, dubbed “Adios Amigos.” The band has stressed that they will not be reuniting once the tour is done and have posted the following statement:

“Since 1975, Krokus stands for honest, handmade, quality power rock. No other Swiss Rock Band sells their albums and their back catalogue worldwide like Krokus. More than 15 million records sold, worldwide tours, gold and platinum in the US and Canada. Our Rock milestones can still be found today all across the globe from Australia to the USA, Mexico, Russia, even Japan and China. Krokus video clips are viewed millions of times on YouTube.

“In 1980, the triumphal march began throughout America, Canada and England. The band cemented their reputation and name as a strong, no-frills live band. Unforgettable headlining tours and on the same bills with great bands like AC / DC, Van Halen, Rush, Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, Motörhead, just to name a few. Wild times, big adventures, which brought the band, among other things, the honorary citizenship of Memphis Tennessee. Krokus were also the first Swiss band to sell-out the Hallenstadion, Zurich in 1982.

“But there was also death, illness and internal disputes that drove the band to the brink of destruction. Then, in 2008 the big comeback. The story of Krokus is unique. Marked by ups and downs. From grandiose stadium concerts to sweaty club gigs. We overcame trends, insidious US managers, harsh splits, bad deals, shady lawyers, drugs, lousy fast food, endless bus trips, disco, grunge, grotesque record companies, and hypocritical advisors.

“During our remarkable career, Krokus rocked more than 2000 shows on five continents – different cities, unique locations, crazy gigs and loyal fans. This long journey ends with our Adios Amigo Tour.

“Krokus shows have always been special and should stay that way. That’s why we decided to stop when it’s still really good. That’s how the fans should remember us. Unlike other bands that are on their eternal ‘farewell tour’, we will keep our word and pull the plug at the end of 2019, handing over the Rock Magic Wand to the youngsters.”

In addition, the band members have issued personal statements.

Marc Storace: “We look forward to a grandiose 2019 Adios Amigos World Tour with the final highlight in Switzerland.”

Fernando von Arb: “We have signed reciprocally contracts with each other that it really is over. We will stick to that. Every party has to end eventually.”

Chris von Rohr: “It was an unparalleled journey with all the ups and downs rock life has to offer. Now we are looking forward to the final lap of honor and will give it our all once more. We owe that to ourselves and our fans. The 7th of December, 2019 will be unforgettable as it was on the 27th of March 1982. “
