This piece of news comes straight from the official Sodom facebook page:

Tom Angelripper is proud and excited to announce the release of the new Sodom album Decision Day for August 26th 2016. Together with his two comrades-in-arms, guitarist Bernemann and drummer Markus “Makka” Freiwald, Angelripper spent four months at the studio honing the new Sodom material. The result is a hard-as-nails, diverse thrash metal offering on the subject of D-Day, the day in June 1944 when the troops of the Western Allied forces landed in Normandy to liberate mainland Europe from the scourge of Nazi Germany. Songs such as ´Belligerence`, ´Decision Day` and ´Strange Lost World` present the Sodom frontman once more as a historically well-versed contemporary witness and critical observer of current international events. Decision Day was produced by Cornelius ´Corny` Rambadt, sound engineer and drummer with Angelripper’s side project Onkel Tom.

For the first time since its initial release in 1985, the cult debut MLP from German thrash / black / death metal legends Sodom appears on vinyl again by Wax Maniax. Package includes eight-page full-color 12” x 12” booklet packed with early photos hand-picked by frontman/founder Tom Angelripper plus liner notes from Tankard frontman Gerre as well as Snakepit magazine founder Frank Stöver, featuring first-hand accounts from the early days of Sodom. First pressing of 1,000 features a laser-etched b-side.

Metal fans have been waiting for this news for years! After a 9-year hiatus, the biggest indoor metal festival in Eastern Europe - Metalmania, comes back to life! The 23rd edition of this iconic festival will be held on April, 22nd 2017 in Spodek Hall, Katowice (Poland). Tickets go on sale on November, 14th.
Moonspell, Sodom, Arcturus, Tygers of Pan Tang and Furia have been announced so far. Today, we can reveal names of two new bands added to the line-up: Coroner and Obscure Sphinx. More bands to be announced soon!
Coroner is one of the most respected and innovative bands of the mainstream technical thrash metal. Their music combines elements of thrash, classical music, avant-garde music, progressive rock, jazz, and industrial metal with suitably gruff vocals. With their increasingly complex style of progressive rock-infused thrash, they have been called "the Rush of thrash metal". Formed in 1983, the band broke up in 1996, but reformed 14 years later. Their next studio album is scheduled for release in 2017!
More info:
Obscure Sphinx – Polish band formed in Warsaw in 2008. Their music oscillates around post-metal but is heavily enriched with doom metal, post-rock and progressive metal influences. Musicians blend sonic spaces and electronic samples with a crushing combo of 8-string guitars and 6-string bass guitars. When you add unique female vocal the final result is simply stunning. So far they have released two studio albums: “Anaesthetic Inhalation Ritual” (2011), “Void Mother” (2013) and live album “Epitaphs" (September 2016 - the cover artwork was done by Mario Duplantier from Gojira). Obscure Sphinx are scheduled to play on the second stage.

Metalmania - it will be one of the most important musical events of 2017, a real treat for metal maniacs worldwide! Metalmania remains true to its formula - one day, two stages, several bands from all around the world and thousands of fans! That’s what Metalmania Festival is all about!
The last edition of Metalmania Festival took place at Spodek Hall in Katowice on March, 8th 2008, with Megadeth, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Overkill and Satyricon on the bill!
More info:

There are live shows that you instinctively know, almost beforehand, that the final result is guaranteed as the band will give everything it has on stage, the energy through the songs will be supersonic and the crowd will have an amazing time which is really the sole purpose of a live experience. The thrash legends Sodom have proved all these years with their numerous concerts in Greece that they are more than capable of delivering the goods and their last show in Athens was no exception.

Sodom @ AN Club

Published in Live Reports

Not long ago, the editors of got together to talk about their favorite music. While discussing, Mariza “Crash” was wondering why a band so big and iconic like Sodom play in a small venue like An Club. Good question, but in fact the legendary underground club showed us once more its hospitality. After all, it’s something like the home base of the Germans every time they visit Greece.
