German thrash metal veterans SODOM have just released a new EP called “Bombenhagel”, via Steamhammer/SPV, which contains one re-recorded classic track and two brand new songs.
SODOM bassist/vocalist Thomas “Angelripper” Such says about the re-recording of “Bombenhagel”: “I wanted a recording of our old classic by the new lineup. Of course that was really special with a drummer such as Toni and two stringsmen. This new arrangement of our anthem definitely holds a few surprises in store.”
The new version of “Bombenhagel” also includes a guitar solo courtesy of Harris Johns, who, as a producer, worked on the “Persecution Mania” (1987) rendition of “Bombenhagel”.
“Harris practically insisted on contributing a special kind of solo, in line with his outstanding skill,” Angelripper says. “Naturally, that’s been a real pleasure for us because we’re all aware of what he’s done for us. Without Harris, SODOM wouldn’t be where we are today.”
The official lyric video for the new version of “Bombenhagel” can be seen below.
