Former Sodom guitarist Dirk Strahlimeier - a.k.a. Strahli - has died.

Frontman Tom Angelripper issued the following statement: "As I learned from a reliable source, our ex-guitarist Dirk 'Strahli' Strahlmeier died this month in a hospital in Düsseldorf, Germany.

"Currently we don't know the exact circumstances of his death. Strahli played on the album Masquerade In Blood which was released in 1995 on SPV. After that we had lost contact with him. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends."

Damn! This is their second ex band-member dead. RIP.

RIP Sodom actually put out some quality thrash.
They still do. Oh, and they never sold out to grunge, industrial or rap metal either. They're truly metal. :D

Countess your insolence towards Sodom's might while regarding Children of Bodom in a positive light is punishable by a left hook/right uppercut combination.

Was Iffy on MIB but this still Sucks. Sodom Is Still The Best of the Big Three Teutonic Thrash bands but this is not a debate about that. May he Thrash on in the Afterlife.
