Sodom - Part Ways With Drummer And Guitarist


The new year has started with a change for Sodom: vocalist/bassist Tom Angelripper has split up with guitarist Bernd "Bernemann" Kost and drummer Markus "Makka" Freiwald. Despite of this line-up change, all scheduled Sodom shows will take place from April 2018 as announced. Tom is set to introduce his new comrades-in-arms at the Full Metal Mountain. Whether the band will continue to operate as a trio or perhaps become a quartet in future remains unclear.

"After much thought and reflection I have decided on this difficult step to pave the way for new challenges," explains Tom. "Sodom have always lived off the commitment and passion of everybody involved. Makka was part of the band for almost eight years, Bernemann even for more than twenty. To obviate a possible routine setting in which would make it impossible to continue our creative work optimally, I would like to start all over again with fresh and hungry musicians. At the same time I would like to say thank you to Bernemann and Makka for many successful years in which we performed fantastic shows and released a number of real metal manifestos."

Tom: "I haven't really made up my mind in this respect, I'm open to all options. I will now install the band's new foundation pillars and look around for new musicians. One thing is already clear: Sodom will become even stronger!"

Together with his new line-up, Tom wants to start working on the upcoming album - to be released on Steamhammer/SPV - as soon as possible. Tom: "SPV also look forward to our future collaboration and expect a totally motivated band."

I don't know why but I am kind of surprised by this. Guess I just didn't see it coming.

Sodom as a quartet? No,please.I like the rawness they
have as a trio like Motorhead,Venom or Raven.
Frank Blackfire would be excellent choice...

I thought Motorhead had a pretty run good as a quartet - Orgasmatron, Rock 'n Roll, 1916, March or Die, and Bastards. (Sacrifice doesn't count because Wurzel supposedly did next to nothing on it)

Oh, and can't forget "Killed By Death".

Band needs new blood, better quartet 2 guitars can make better sound, because band is stuck in past and whole 90's and generally albums sucks. Few 80's are OK, rest is shit

the fact that BE knows this better than anyone involved has probably baffled him
