Death Angel Checks In From The Road

Guitarist Rob Cavestany of DEATH ANGEL recently checked in from the “In Thrash We Trust Tour” with GOD FORBID, SOILENT GREEN and LIGHT THIS CITY:

“First night of the ‘In Thrash We Trust Tour’, right on the heels of our European Tour, and we are ready to kick ass for another month straight! It feels great to finally be out on the road again man; almost like a weight has been lifted off our backs. We had a lot of problems getting out their for ‘The Art of Dying’ and now it’s time to make up for those lost moments in time. Seeing the look on our fans faces, and hearing them scream their lungs out night after night is the best feeling in the world, and we’ve been away from that for too long. Anyone that comes to a DEATH ANGEL show knows that we love to play live and we welcome everyone to share that incredible feeling with us. We are stronger than we’ve ever been and now is the time to see us more than ever! See you all out there on the road! ‘Killing Season’ has begun!”

Death Angel Become Lords Of The Underworld

Camden's Underworld venue has hosted some great performances from many of the old school thrash and death metal legends. Death Angel would be no exception.

The first band to hit the stage was Austria's Demolition. The band demonstrated some really good sounds in the vein of older death metal acts and were quite possibly the heaviest band of the night. Whilst they were good at what they did, they received only a limited reaction from the audience, which was a shame because they were pouring their heart and soul into the set. Demolition was a good live band that restores your faith that there is "real" death metal still going. More...

Death Angel's "Dethroned" Video To Premiere

DEATH ANGEL’s video for "Dethroned," a track off their latest album, "Killing Season," will debut online on Thursday, April 17th on Headbangers Blog and on-air on MTV2's Headbangers Ball this Saturday, April 19th at 11 p.m. EASTERN / 8 p.m. PACIFIC.

Director/producer Robert Sexton had this to say about his ties to DEATH ANGEL and how the gig practically landed in his lap:

“I’m excited about this video and I think D.A. fans are going to go nuts for it. It’s a great song and there are a lot of layers to the story and to the visuals. There’s something new to see every time you watch it, and DEATH ANGEL’s performance decimates. My band Genocide opened for DEATH ANGEL at an all-ages show in a Masonic Hall in Grand Haven, Michigan in the late ‘80s. Years later, I ran into Mark Osegueda at an absinthe party at Kirk Hammett’s house in San Francisco. Mark informed me that DEATH ANGEL were doing their new album, and I asked to be put in the mix to direct the video. Keep your eyes open for the ‘unclean’ edit that’s bound to surface somewhere… and keep watching the skies.”

DEATH ANGEL will launch a North American co-headlining “In Thrash We Trust” tour with God Forbid on May 1st in Michigan, with support coming from Soilent Green and Light This City. The band’s first tour since 1990, guitarist Rob Cavestany says, “We couldn’t be more stoked! ‘In Thrash We Trust’ will be our first full-blown tour since we hit the road for Act III eighteen years ago and we are gonna bring it! ‘Killing Season’ has begun!!!”

Death Angel Guitarist Speaks On The New Album

KNAC.com has issued an exclusive interview with DEATH ANGEL guitarist Rob Cavestany, conducted by Peter Atkinson. The following is an excerpt:

Q: The new album’s got a real swagger to it. It’s has more of a rock vibe than a straight-up thrash vibe.

A: "That’s what our style has evolved to. We play thrash, but our sound of thrash has other elements. It’s a different flavor of thrash and that has to do with how our songwriting has matured and how confident we are as musicians."

Q: Your producer, Nick Raskulinecz, has done mostly rock albums, did that play much into vibe of the album, or did he just capture what you guys were putting out?

A: "Some of both. Not only did he capture what it is that we want, but he captured us at our best. That’s really the job of the producer, when you’re working with a band like us who really knows what we want with our sound. In our case, the role of collaborating with the producer was just that — to collaborate to bring out the best of our sound as opposed to wanting a producer to make us have their kind signature kind of sound.

When we met up with Nick, he and I basically co-produced the record together, we just hit if off from day one. One thing is the chemistry has to be there, right there it can make or break it, and even though he does mostly rock he’s a full-on metalhead. The whole reason we ended up working with him is he knew our music.

A friend of ours named Danko Jones, who did his last album with Nick, he came to one of the recording sessions wearing a Death Angel hoodie and Nick was like 'Dude, Death Angel', and he picked up a guitar and started playing 'Seemingly Endless Time' and 'The Ultra-Violence'. So Danko got a hold us and was like 'dude, my producer knows your guys music, you guys should hit him up'. And when we realized who he was, were like 'no way'. So we sent demoes to him and he called us the next day and was like 'dude, this is the sickest Death Angel album to date'. And we were locked in from that moment on."

Death Angel's Killing Season was released yesterday (February 26, 2008) via Nuclear Blast Records.

In the January 2008 issue of Decibel magazine, DEATH ANGEL vocalist Mark Osegueda explains how the group's collaboration with Raskulinecz came about. "We're friends with [Canadian rocker Danko Jones], and Nick was actually working on the new Danko record about to come out," says Mark. "We were already talking to different producers, and we'd heard Danko was working with this guy, and we were like, 'Wow, how'd you get that guy?' And Danko walked into the studio one day wearing his DEATH ANGEL hoodie, and Nick went, 'DEATH ANGEL!' and picked up a guitar and started playing the riffs to 'Seemingly Endless Time'. Danko e-mailed us the next day, and suggested we send down our demos to see if he was even interested. We did — Nick loved them, and the timing worked out; he had downtime and we needed to get into the studio within three weeks. All the pieces of the puzzle basically fell into place, and it's been magical."
