German legendary thrash act Sodom recently announced the impending drop of the band's new studio album "Epitome Of Torture" on April 26, 2013 (GER), April 29, 2013 (EU) and May 7, 2013 (US). Now the band reveals a little more about the release:

"In recent months, vocalist/bassist Tom Angelripper, guitarist Bernemann and their new drummer Markus “Makka” Freiwald recorded a total of twelve new tracks (plus a Motörhead cover) which present Sodom as more diverse and multi-faceted than ever. 'Epitome Of Torture features not only your typical Sodom fare, but also two or three numbers which are slightly more moderate and melodic than what people have come to expect from us,' Tom Angelripper explains, 'so wait and see!'

"'Epitome Of Torture' was produced by Waldemar Sorychta, whose expertise as a sound engineer and audio magician thoroughly benefited Sodom’s 2010 release 'In War And Pieces.' Tom Angelripper [commented]: 'Waldemar is a true authority. He doesn’t let you get away with anything, he knows all our weak spots. Which occasionally makes working at the studio a little demanding, but at the end of the day it’s all worthwhile, as the result shows.' The Sodom frontman describes the sound on 'Epitome Of Torture' as 'hard-as-nails and contemporary, without ignoring our tried-and-tested old-school attitude.'

"The new album will be available in four different formats: as a limited-edition DigiPak including two bonus tracks and a poster, in a regular jewel case, as a double gatefold vinyl including three bonus tracks and for download. The cover artwork featuring Sodom‘s popular 'Knarrenheinz' logo was developed by graphic designer Meran Karanitant, who has caused a stir with his work for Six Feet Under, Hatebreed and Dimmu Borgir, among others.

"There will also be a video clip to support 'Epitome Of Torture': together with the ROAX team (Sodom: Lords of Depravity Vol 1+2, Volbeat, The BossHoss, W:O:A – to name but a few), Sodom are about to start shooting a video for their new album song ‘Stigmatized’ in Berlin. 'Sodom haven’t had an official video clip for some time, so it’s about time we did one,' Tom Angelripper confesses. 'That’s why the mini film will be uncompromising, a shocking clip which our fans can look forward to!'"
