Multinational thrash legends Exumer have released a video for “King’s End” a track off of their latest Hostile Defiance. This is the band’s fifth release, which debuted last month via Metal Blade Records. The album hit German charts on position 42, the highest chart entry in the band’s history.
Attention all Sodom-Fans, there’s a number of 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 line-up change in spring 2018. “We all really enjoy the new line-up 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.” Sodom have been thrashing since their formation in 1981 and has 15 studio albums under their belt. Sodom’s current lineup could be the best and heaviest lineup the band has ever had. How will Sodom sound with the new lineup? They are ready to give you a teaser with their new EP ‘Partisan’ which will be out on 23 November 2018, featuring three tracks including a live recording from this year’s Rock Hard Festival. The digital version of the album also includes the bonus track “One Step Over The Line” which the band has released an official video for as well. The new line-up could hardly present itself in a more impressive manner! This EP should hold fans over until they complete the new full length they are currently working on.
