Among the youngest acts ever to storm the metal genre, DEATH ANGEL has come to be known as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the thriving Bay Area Thrash Metal Scene in the early 1980s, an era when one could catch Cliff Burton at the front of the stage at Ruthie’s Inn banging his head to DEATH ANGEL's inventive style and speedy, complex arrangements. Their debut debut “The Ultra Violence” was a full-frontal assault on the ears, buzzing with the group’s youthful energy and selling 40,000 copies in just four months. The follow ups “Frolic Through the Park” and "Act 3", widely regarded as one of the most original and accomplished thrash metal albums ever recorded, witnessed an impressive evolution both lyrically and musically. DEATH ANGEL'S trajectory to fame was tragically cut short in 1990, when the band’s tour bus crashed in the Arizona desert. Drummer Andy Galeon was critically injured, and would need more than a year to recover. During this downtime, vocalist Mark Osegueda left the band and moved to New York to pursue a life outside of music. The remaining members went on to form THE ORGANISATION and released two full-length albums under that name. DEATH ANGEL resurfaced in 2001 to perform at a cancer benefit for frontman Chuck Billy (TESTAMENT) called “Thrash of the Titans.” The response was so great that many offers came quickly in 2002, and soon DEATH ANGEL were back! And they still are, having recorded several hard thrashing and highly acclaimed albums since then and proving on festival stages all over the world, that they're one of the most vivid and intense live acts within their genre (and beyond). Watch out for DEATH ANGEL at our festival warm up show 2017!
