German thrash legends Sodom’s new album, Genesis XIX, will finally arrive this Friday (27th) via eOne (North America)/ steamhammer/SPV (Europe). The band has unleashed a video of one last single before the album’s arrival for the song “Friendly Fire.”
Bandleader Tom Angelripper comments:
“So, here it is … my favorite on this album. I can hardly believe or indeed describe how much I love this song. I’m pretty sure it sets the direction for our next album. And in the meantime, I’m convinced that it’s the clever sequence and combination of notes in our twelve equal system that makes music (generally) so diverse. Lord, I wish we’d known that back then. Often in a war situation, soldiers find themselves having to direct their weapons against their own comrades who are holed up close to enemy positions. These victims were accepted as part and parcel of the overall victory. Large numbers of supposed enemy planes were also shot down…”

Puscifer have shared a video for their song “Fake Affront.” The track is taken from their latest effort, Existential Reckoning, which was released on October 30th, but due to COVID-19 related manufacturing issues, the physical versions will arrive on December 11th. The video includes performance footage from their recent Livestream event, Existential Reckoning: Live at Arcosanti.
Within Temptation have released a new song “The Purge” The track follows the group’s series of digital releases, which they’ve unveiled “Entertain You” earlier this year.
The group comments:
“Throughout history, people have always been searching for ways to cleanse themselves. They’ve always been searching for… ‘The Purge.'”
Singer Sharon den Adel adds:
“‘The Purge’ revolves around self-reflection and a search for redemption,” singer Sharon den Adel states. “No one gets through life without scars or without inflicting them on others, and there will always be moments in your life you start questioning your choices. You start realizing you’ve made mistakes, causing harm to not only others, but also to yourself. To confess, to acknowledge, and to accept these mistakes can be a very painful process and unescapable when the burden becomes too heavy.”
