"City of God", the latest video from veteran German thrashers SODOM, is available for download at this location (MPG file; 69 MB).

SODOM will make several festival appearances next year and is planning on releasing the second part of its "Lords of Depravity" DVD. Also in the works are reissues of some of the band's earlier recordings.

SODOM's new album, "The Final Sign of Evil", will be released as a double vinyl package on February 1, 2008 via SPV Records. The LP features 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 LP, "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."

SODOM will embark 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.

Upcoming SODOM shows:

Mar. 08 - GR - Athens - Olympic Fencing Arena (March Metal Day Festival)
May 30 - CRO - Zagreb - Boogaloo Club (Zagreb Metal Fest)
Jun. 21 - F - Clisson - Hellfest
Jul. 03 - SER - Belgrade/Smederova - Castle Fest
Jul. 19 - D - Osterode - Rock Harz Open Air
Aug. 29 - D - Losheim am Stausee - Rock Area Festival
