Death Angel Posts New Lyric Video "The Pack" Online

California thrash metal legends Death Angel have unleashed a snarling new song today called "The Pack" from the band’s long-awaited ninth full-length album, "Humanicide," that’s due out May 31st from Nuclear Blast Records. Watch the lyric video for the track below.

With their forthcoming album Humanicide, Death Angel has maintained their throne in the universe of thrash while still managing to remain progressive in their style. They apply a wide variety of different elements to their music, always pushing to add newness to their sound. This time around they’ve included everything from acoustic bits, to guest musicians, to even (for the first time) the notes of a piano. All ten songs flow seamlessly yet each leaves its own distinct impression. The first single and title track "Humanicide" triumphantly represents the entirety of the album, immediately energising the listener. Mark Osegueda remarks: "I wanted to write something that metal fans could really grasp onto. Something dark and intense, that still makes sense. Right now I think it’s so apparent that the earth is in a sickened state."

"When I wrote the music for our song 'Humanicide' I was shooting for an album opener that would have all the elements of an epic thrash opus. This meant a classic metal style intro leading into a ferocious “Bay Area Thrash Riff-o-Rama” - complete with a crazy middle build up section to ramp up the circle pit until it’s all whipped up into a frenzy by the time the frenetic guitar solo hits, then concluding with a maniacal musical section leading into the outro. All it needed was the lyrics and vocal delivery to match the intensity and Mark went above and beyond the call of duty! Some of his best work in my opinion. One of my favorite DA songs for sure, it feels like the follow up to our song 'Thrown to the Wolves'. Can’t wait to play it live!" – Rob Cavestany.
