In a recent interview with Mattowarrior’s Metal Madness, SODOM bassist/vocalist Thomas “Angelripper” Such stated about the upcoming album, “We have a new producer, Waldemar Sorychta of GRIP INC. He’s like a fourth bandmember. I told him I wanted SODOM to go back to our roots, and it’s important to create an album with an old sound. I don’t like productions where the bands sound like all the others. He ha[d] many ideas on how to arrange the album, and vocal lines, etc.”
Such previously stated about the group’s new material, “There has never been a SODOM album which is so wide-ranged, as powerful and as typically SODOM as this one.”
