Helmed by one relentless maniac named Peter Hobbs, Hobbs' Angel of Death is one of the more unsung cult favorites of '80s metal. Hailing from Australia many years before it was cool to do so, the band released two classic demos in 1987, "Angel of Death" and the telltale "Virgin Metal Invasion From Down Under," before time came for the inevitable debut album.
