Death Angel is a hard-hitting metal band from Daly City, California. The band became popular in the eighties and early nineties but had a ten-year hiatus until returning in 2001. The band has seen many personnel changes over the years, but they now consist of: Rob Cavestany -vocals, Mark Osegueda – lead guitar and vocals, Ted Aguilar – rhythm guitar, Will Carroll -drums, and Damien Sisson -bass. Death Angel is releasing their new album titled, Humanicide, their ninth studio offering. The writing, singing and playing is in top form and it will not disappoint metal fans from the eighties to today’s head bangers.

Of Rats and Men [Explicit]
The Day I Walked Away
Release Date: May 31, 2019
A collection of eleven tracks that have forms that flow through multiple feels, intensities and densities. The playing and singing is excellent.
Death Angel’s melodic focus and attention to detail is what makes Humanicide a great metal album. The writing, performance, and production are all excellent. The tunes sound fresh and the musicians are continually pushing themselves. As a result, the music continues to have an edge, with a sense of exploration that makes it a formidable modern Thrash Metal sound. Cavestany’s aggressive full-throated vocal style is a winner. Add the guitar work of Osegueda and Aguilar, which is interactive and killin’, and you have the perfect storm. To drive that storm is Carroll’s and Sisson’s unyielding pulse and feel. Favorite tracks are the title track, with its outstanding song form and “The Pack,” with its driving metal sounds and outstanding solo by Osegueda. Death Angel is creating metal for a wide audience, from rock fans to thrashers, Death Angel will deliver sounds that are relatable and sustaining.
