Guitarist Bernd "Bernemann" Kost and drummer Markus "Makka" Freiwald have released a joint statement regarding their exit from German thrash metal outfit Sodom.

As reported past Friday (January 5) Sodom bassist/vocalist and sole remaining founding member Thomas "Angelripper" Such, announced that he made the decision to part ways with Kost and Freiwald because he wanted to "start all over again with fresh and hungry musicians."

Kost and Freiwald addressed their departure from the band, writing in a Facebook post:

“Tom has already pointed it out in his statement that in fact we have slightly drifted apart from each other. Indeed, our conceptions of respect and workload diverged even further. Also tour offers neglected by Tom disappointed us.

“After its overwhelming reactions, we were totally looking forward to creating a successor to ‘Decision Day’ and have already recorded lots of song ideas. Unfortunately, Tom did not share our enthusiasm; he terminated his cooperation with us via WhatsApp even without listening to any of the new material.

“Of course, it is not easy for us to leave Sodom — the band that have become such a huge part of our lives and that we totally identify with. But, we will not stop doing what we love — together we will found a new band and we will see a way forward.

“Within our hearts, we will remain Sodom even if Tom is not with us any longer.”
