When you hear the term “Thrash Metal” not many bands will come to mind before the mighty SODOM! Formed in 1981 in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, Sodom was formed by one Tom Angelripper, vocalist and bassist. He has been the one constant member in the band in the 4+ decade existence of the band. 

In this episode, you’ll hear a combination of two interviews done at different times. First you’ll hear  Tom Angelripper, when we spoke in 2020 after the release of the band’s 19th studio album, Genesis XIX. The interview with Frank Blackfire (guitar, vocals) is from January ’24,  when I saw them on the 70,000 Tons of Metal Cruise.
