SODOM have just announced the release of the new album "Decision Day" for August 26th 2016 through SPV/Steamhammer. Tom Angelripper, guitarist Bernemann and drummer Markus “Makka” Freiwald, recorded the album, that according to the official info..."is the result is a hard-as-nails, diverse thrash metal offering on the subject of D-Day, the day in June 1944 when the troops of the Western Allied forces landed in Normandy to liberate mainland Europe from the scourge of Nazi Germany. Songs such as ´Belligerence`, ´Decision Day` and ´Strange Lost World` present the Sodom frontman once more as a historically well-versed contemporary witness and critical observer of current international events"
"Decision Day" features artwork of none other than Joe Petagno. Mr Petagno himself had some words regarding his collaboration with Sodom... “After having spoken with Tom about the current state of world affairs and heard some brilliant tracks from the album I wanted to visualize the History of Man from the dawn of creation to the mess we have today. Firstly and rather obviously it’s World War 3. However on psychological and symbolic level it’s considerably more. I used Knarrenheinz as a symbol for the countless numbers who have soldiered on thru’ the centuries in one guise or another just to get us here anno 2016 where we seem to be on the brink of another possible eruption.”
