Sodom - New EP Announced, New Album Teased

German Teutonic thrash metallers Sodom have announced the release of a brand new EP entitled Sacred Warpath. It contains 4 tracks, a brand new one and three live tracks. The new track which also gives the title to the EP was originally written for the release of a future new album but the band decided to release it separately as a teaser for what's to come.

The EP will be released worldwide through SPV/Steamhammer on November 28th in Germany, December 1st in Europe, and late January 2015 in the USA on CD, 10" clear vinyl, and digital download formats.

Tom Angelripper comments: "Since we've been getting the impression that the world is falling apart at the seams, we've decided to make our voices heard... while there's still time. 'Sacred Warpath' was originally written for our upcoming album, but we feel it's a good idea to release it now as an appetizer for future Sodom tracks. Because it's going to get raw, brutal and will be a reflection of all the things that we're afraid of and that give us nightmares. Pretty much like that hate-filled world we live in. And it's probably more authentic than any of our releases so far.

"The record includes three representative titles which we recorded in Germany this year, and it's guaranteed to become a rare collectors' item. The cover will feature a re-paint of an old design from the 80s, which I did for a demo cover, painted in oil by Christian Ermel. This may all sound a little old-school, but that's intentional. That's what we've always been and always will be about. We very much hope to tie over the waiting time until the arrival of our new album. And now listen to my unmistakable demand on this world: turn back on your sacred warpath and find the path of peace before it's too late. Our music will help you!"

I actually love the hell out of that cover art. Probably should give this a listen when it comes out.

How the hell band reach to this conclusion? Every time when any musician comments about new album, they just come up with fancy cloudbuster opening statement we'll HAVE TO BELIEVE IN.

Anyway, good to see Bodom got some new stuff in their bag. Time will tell how they'll deliver.

Why shouldn't they guess what is going on behind the scenes?
Band members who travel around the world every year, with open mind, see things.
But if you don't travel, you can also recognise signs in your immediate environment.

I agree with their statement. The collapse will come, but we don't know when it will come exactly. Maybe tomorrow, maybe next year.
The SYSTEM is artificially breathing. The plug could be pulled out anytime...
