German thrashers SODOM have the following European scheduled:

September
8 - Reiden, Switzerland - Back To Rock Festival

October
27 - Koblenz, Germany - Rhein Metal Cruise II

December
2 - Essen, Germany - Metalborse West Stadthalle
16 - Wurzburg, Germany - Metalborse Soundpark Ost

Sodom's new album, The Final Sign Of Evil, is scheduled for release on September 28th in Germany and October 1st in Europe via Steamhammer/SPV. A North America date is pending. As previously reported, the album 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 Final Sign of Evil is being produced by Sodom's webmaster Toto, who 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."

The tracklisting is as follows:

'The Sin Of Sodom' *
'Blasphemer' **
'Ashes To Ashes' *
'Witching Metal' **
'Sons Of Hell' *
'Burst Command 'Til War' **
'Where Angels Die' *
'Sepulchral Voice' **
'Hatred Of The Gods' *
'Bloody Corpse' *
'Outbreak Of Evil' **
'Defloration' *

* bonus tracks
** songs which were on the original version of In The Sign Of Evil
