“WE’RE ONE OF THE ONLY BANDS THAT TRIES TO KEEP THE SPIRIT OF THE ’80S, AND THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT”

…SAYS TOM ANGELRIPPER ABOUT HIS BAND SODOM. BUT NEW ALBUM ‘DECISION DAY’ SHOWS A BAND NOT RELYING ON PAST GLORIES TO CONTINUE MAKING FUTURE CLASSIC ALBUMS

It’s easy to get jaded with bands like Sodom. 35 years and fifteen studio albums in, the phrase ‘new Sodom album’ won’t exactly make you achieve rapture. Besides, it’s not like the new ones are ever going to be as important as ‘Obsessed By Cruelty’ or ‘Agent Orange’ or whatever your favourite is, right? While all that is true, it’s also very unfair, as Sodom have never really wavered in terms of quality. New effort ‘Decision Day’ is actually one of those that stands out this side of the 21st century in the band’s career, especially for all the old-school nods it features – not to mention that awesome Joe Petagno cover.

“What I do like particularly about this new one is the production, I think it’s getting closer and closer to the ideal sound I want,” says charismatic frontman Tom Angelripper. “Of course, I like the songs. I’m really satisfied with the results, because we’ve had more time to produce it – we had no release date, we just started writing the songs and from there, there was no added pressure. We took nearly half a year just to record it. I went to my friend Conny and we’d take a day or two to just work on one song, then go home and rest for a while, it was all very relaxed work.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

Devin Townsend: it’s a name synonymous with heavy and extreme metal, and also a name associated with the occasional foray into acoustic and country albums, not to mention albums featuring coffee loving puppets! And of course, who could forget his very own dedication to this here mag he created a few years ago with his mighty ‘Terrorizer’ song – only Onslaught had ever done a homage to a metal mag before this, if memory serves me correctly. There’s something for everyone, which is something rare in many musician’s repertoires. Devin’s enjoyed and created a rather unique musical path and 25 albums in, it’s awesome to see that this month, there are no signs of him letting up. Read all about what he’s been up to over the past few years and how he’s feeling about life in our cover story. Elsewhere this issue is jam packed with a delectable array of quality bands including plenty of UK bands – Akercocke, The Wounded Kings, Slomatics, Coltsblood, and Iron Witch – and plenty of worldwide ones too. Extreme music, no boundaries! See you next month. Darren Sadler
