It’s time for another Thrash Hits festival splash page – and this time it’s for Hammerfest. All of our Hammerfest 2013 coverage from the weekend will be linked to on this here post, so make sure you bookmark it as it’s all you’re going to need. Yep. That means individual band coverage (photos, setlists and maybe even some reviews), all the dodgy rumours and awful gossip our man David Keevill overhears, and every single photo of Wales-based debauchery that Gary Wolstenholme and Jenn McCambridge snap will be here.
Sodom is a German thrash metal trio from Gelsenkirchen, formed in 1981. Along with the bands Kreator, Destruction and Tankard, Sodom is considered one of the "The Big Teutonic Four" of Teutonic thrash metal.
The band was formed by Tom Angelripper and Aggressor in 1981 in the Western German industrial town of Gelsenkirchen. Initially, they were mostly influenced by bands like Motörhead, Tank, Raven, and Venom. Sodom's own music style would greatly influence many late-1980s and early-1990s thrash and black metal bands, among others. Read more on Last.fm

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?

Taking to the stage like champions, German thrashers Sodom are still as furious as they were back in 1982. It’s been 20 years since their last UK show, but this afternoon these 3 guys sound bigger than a 6-piece, playing tighter than a nun’s undergarments. As they roll into ‘Blasphemer’, the assembled crowd becomes an ocean of banging heads. This was worth that two-decade wait. (Words: Amit Sharma)
