While Savage Messiah covered the Brit-Thrash angle, you can’t really have a European metal festival without a bit of German thrash, can you? That’s a rhetorical question, by the way, so you really shouldn’t spend too much time thinking about it. Just go look at Gary Wolstenholme’s pictures of Sodom, okay?
Sodom are incredibly tight and show no compromise in their craft as they rattle through classics like ‘Blasphemer’ and ‘Sodomy and Lust’, outstripping every other thrash band that’s played this weekend.
Sodom @ Hammerfest 2013 setlist:
In War and Pieces
