Teutonic Black / Thrash pioneers Germany Sodom have just announced the details for their next full-length album. Marking their 40th anniversary, the new album will be titled "40 Years at War - The Greatest Hell of Sodom" and is set to feature 17 re-recorded versions of existing songs, one from each of their previous records.

Steamhammer, the band's current label, had this to say:

40 years of Sodom, 40 years of ruthless thrash metal 'Made In Germany'. What came into being in 1982 in Gelsenkirchen-Buer has lost nothing of its authenticity and rawness, not even four decades later.

Tom Angelripper and his men still belong to the spearhead of a music style that draws its energy from pure determination, intransigence and relentlessness. What’s more, Sodom never fail to surprise their fans all over the world. They managed especially well with "40 Years At War - The Greatest Hell of Sodom", a more than worthy anniversary album that - in various formats - sums up the band's history in an unusual and highly ambitious way.


The band elaborated further:

Our goal was to re-record one song from each of our previous albums. Not necessarily the most obvious ones, we wanted to go for rarities or tracks we’ve never or very rarely played live.

"40 Years At War – The Greatest Hell of Sodom" will be released as CD, double vinyl record, digital download, stream and as a lavish, richly stocked and extremely limited box set including a bunch of surprises.


The complete tracklist for the album is planned as follows:

  1. Sepulchral Voice
  2. After the Deluge
  3. Electrocution
  4. Baptism of Fire
  5. Better Off Dead
  6. Body Parts
  7. Jabba the Hut
  8. Gathering of Minds
  9. That's What an Unknown Killer Diarized
  10. Book Burning
  11. Genocide
  12. City of God
  13. Ashes to Ashes
  14. In War and Pieces
  15. S.O.D.O.M.
  16. Caligula
  17. Euthanasia


The cover art was crafted by Berlin-based artist Eliran Kantor, who also collaborated with Sodom for the cover art of their 2010 album, "In War and Pieces":
