German Thrash Metal legends SODOM will release their new single and video for the song “Friendly Fire” today. The song is taken from the upcoming studio album “Genesis XIX”.
  
Tom Angelripper: “So, here it is … my favourite on this album. I can hardly believe or indeed describe how much I love this song. I’m pretty sure it sets the direction for our next album. 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 …”
