In Sodom, Tom Angelripper handles bass guitar and vocal duties. He is highly inspired by the band Motörhead, though Slayer is his favourite band. He originally played with his fingers, but now uses a pick. Angelripper formed Sodom with guitarist Frank "Aggressor" Testegen and drummer Rainer "Bloody Monster" Focke in 1982, in a desperate bid to get out of work in the coal mines that the three had worked in.
Angelripper also founded a band called Onkel Tom Angelripper which plays metal versions of schlagers, drinking songs and Christmas carols. In addition, he worked with a side project of Sodom's touring guitarist Alex Kraft, called Desperados, which featured spaghetti-western-themed heavy metal. The band later evolved independently under the name of Dezperadoz, but Angelripper still occasionally contributes.
He also plays in several other sideprojects, such as the German bands Bassinvaders and Die Knappen.Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
