Sodom unleash “Friendly Fire” video

Posted by on November 24, 2020

 

 

German thrash legends Sodom’s new album, Genesis XIX, will finally arrive this Friday (27th) via eOne (North America)/ steamhammer/SPV (Europe). The band has unleashed a video of one last single before the album’s arrival for the song “Friendly Fire.”

And in the meantime, I’m convinced that it’s the clever sequence and combination of notes in our twelve equal system that makes music (generally) so diverse. Lord, I wish we’d known that back then. Often in a war situation, soldiers find themselves having to direct their weapons against their own comrades who are holed up close to enemy positions. These victims were accepted as part and parcel of the overall victory. Large numbers of supposed enemy planes were also shot down…”
