SODOM have long been considered arguably the biggest German thrash metal band in existence. With iconic albums like 1989’s Agent Orange being considered cornerstones of the genre, the band is still plugging away with impressive material. Now, the band have released a new song titled “Down On Your Knees,” and will release a new EP titled Out Of The Frontline Trench on November 22, 2019. The all-new effort will be available via Entertainment One (“eOne”) in North America and SPV/Steamhammer in Europe as CD DigiPak, vinyl, download, and stream.
Thrash metal fans, unite. John Bush (Armored Saint, ex-Anthrax vocalist) is here to discuss all things LA thrash metal in a brand new documentary. Check out more info on the documentary below, as well as a clip from the documentary, released Friday, January 19th.
Internationally-renowned heavy rock leaders LAMB OF GOD will support metal legends Slayer on leg one, North America, of what will be Slayer‘s final world tour. The 26-date trek will begin on May 10 and visit several major cities – from San Diego to Toronto, Orlando to Minneapolis. Additional support will come from fellow metal heavyweights Anthrax, Behemoth, and Testament. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, January 26.
Randy Blythe of LAMB OF GOD says: “If you are lucky enough to be invited to play even just once with living legends like Slayer, it’s an incredible honor. Slayer gave LAMB OF GOD our very first two overseas shows. Slayer has subsequently taken us on several full-length tours, both at home and abroad. The guys in Slayer and their crew have also always been very, very cool to our band. It is irrefutable that Slayer helped create the genre of aggressive metal, and all modern bands of that ilk owe them a huge debt – I know we do. To be asked to be a part of their final tour – well, it just makes you stop and realize just how lucky you are. Hail Slayer! We’ll see you on the road…”
There’s almost nothing cooler to me than seeing local bands I grew up watching, make it out of the state, and go on to tour the rest of the country. I specifically wanted to take the time to focus on a couple bands who, while may be established in the state of Florida, have also become legitimate up-and-coming touring bands. All of that, plus a sneak peak at a promising younger band who we believe will be turning heads soon enough, right after the jump.
