Organizers of the Keep It True Festival in Germany have announced that the Saturday headliner will be the reunited Dark Angel, with original vocalist Don Doty, Eric Meyer (Guitars), Mike Gonzalez (Bass) and new guitarist Justin Zych. Thought not officially confirmed, the announcement hints that drummer Gene Hoglan may return as well.

Dark Angel joins another reunited act to appear at the festival: Jag Panzer, who will play with guitaris Joey Tafolla. The roster announcement reads:

"We are extremely proud that we can announce the big Saturday headliner for Keep It True 2014.

"Thrash Metal legends Dark Angel will play their very first show with original singer Don Doty at KIT 2014. Also in the line up are Eric Meyer (guit.), Mike Gonzalez (bass) and Justin Zych (guit.). The drummer is not confirmed yet, but will be announced very soon. Looks like it will be a famous person from Dark Angel history, too.

"With 'Darkness Descends' Dark Angel recorded a milestone in Thrash Metal and at KIT you will see AT LEAST three musicians from that record performing. It will be legendary!!

"The festival is already COMPLETELY SOLD OUT. Thanks for your outstanding support!"

I never thought Dark Angel would actually reunite again. It's good to see Don back in the band. Their "Darkness Descends" record is awesome.

Now Playing: Dark Angel - Death Is Certain (Life Is Not)
