Video Of SODOM’s “Stigmatized” Released

Thursday, 18th April 2013

German thrash metal veterans SODOM have unveiled a new video titled, “Stigmatized”, which can be seen at Bloody-Disgusting.com. Filmed in Berlin with director Ronald Matthes and Roax Media (SODOM’s “Lords Of Depravity” volumes 1 and 2, VOLBEAT) and the clip is a treat for fans as historically the band has not filmed an official video in a long time. SODOM vocalist/bassist Thomas “Angelripper” stated the following about the video: “SODOM haven’t had an official video clip for some time, so it’s about time we did one,” . “That’s why the mini film will be uncompromising, a shocking clip which our fans can look forward to!”

“Stigmatized” comes off SODOM’s new album, “Epitome Of Torture”, which will be made available on April 29 in Europe and May 7 in North America through record label, SPV. SODOM will celebrate the release of “Epitome Of Torture” on April 26 at Endzeit in Essen, Germany. Angelripper, guitarist Bernd Kost and new drummer Markus Freiwald recorded a total of twelve new tracks (plus a MOTÖRHEAD cover) and Angelripper recently gave fans the lowdown on what to expect from the new album. “‘Epitome Of Torture’ features not only your typical SODOM fare, but also two or three numbers which are slightly more moderate and melodic than what people have come to expect from us so wait and see!”

“Epitome Of Torture” will be available in four different formats: as a digital download; a limited-edition digipak, including two bonus tracks and a poster; regular jewel case; as a double gatefold vinyl, including three bonus tracks. The cover artwork emphasizes SODOM’s popular “Knarrenheinz” logo was developed by graphic designer Meran Karanitant, who has worked with SIX FEET UNDER, DIMMU BORGIR, HATEBREED and many other renowned bands.

The SODOM frontman also divulged about the eighth track, Katjuscha: “The Katjuscha has been produced since World War II and is still used today. It’s been responsible for the death of more people than Stalin’s organ. To name such a deadly weapon after a girl is as grotesque as giving the atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima the code name ‘Little Boy’.”

It is clear that SODOM hasn’t changed it’s view of the world and fans can expect “Epitome Of Torture” to be unforgiving and uncompromising than ever before.
