On June 19, Metal Maniac video magazine conducted an interview with Thomas “Angelripper” Such,bassist/vocalist of veteran German thrashers SODOM, at Hellfest in Clisson, France.
Speaking about SODOM’s plans to record a new studio album, Angelripper said: “We have already a lot of good [new] songs [written] together — like, I think, seven or eight songs. And at this time we’re working [on] pre-production. For this album, there’s really something special. We don’t have any pressure; we don’t have any dictation from a record company: ‘Bring it out now.’ I told the record company, ‘We’ll do the pre-production and then we can talk about a release.’ But I think it’s gonna be April or May of next year.”
