Long-running German thrashers SODOM are planning on embarking on a short U.S. tour in late April/early May 2008. No further details are currently available.

SODOM played a special 25th anniversary set at Wacken Open Air festival, which took place August 2-4 in Wacken, Germany. The 120-minute performance kicked off with four songs from the band's latest, self-titled album, after which the group was joined by several ex-members for a set of songs that have rarely or never before been played live. SODOM then closed the gig with five more classics.

SODOM's new album, "The Final Sign of Evil", is scheduled for release on September 28 in Germany and October 1 in the rest of Europe via SPV Records. A North American release date has not yet been announced. The CD will feature re-recordings of the material from the German thrashers' classic first EP, "In the Sign of Evil", plus no less than seven bonus tracks, all of which were originally written during the "In the Sign of Evil" era or earlier but were never officially released. As a special bonus, the album will feature return appearances by the group's original drummer Chris Dudek (a.k.a. Witchhunter) and guitarist Josef "Peppi" Dominic (a.k.a. Grave Violator), both of whom were featured on the original 1984 EP.

The band's webmaster Toto, who produced the effort, previously stated about the upcoming CD, "The official name is 'The Final Sign of Evil', and follows the plan to make the 'In the Sign of Evil' a complete album. So the seven additional tracks are not a real bonus, because they fulfill an album, like it should [have done] back in 1984."

01. The Sin Of Sodom *
02. Blasphemer **
