Death Angel

Death Angel emerged from the Bay Area in the mid-eighties, and is often mentioned in the same breath as Heathen, Testament, Forbidden, and others, though their unique style set them apart from the pack just a bit. The young family affair (the lineup consisted of two brothers and three of their cousins, one of which was then-12-year-old drummer Andy Galeon) debuted in 1987 with The Ultraviolence, their fastest and heaviest album, but also their most conventional, as the followups Frolic Through The Park and Act III are where the band really started to spread their wings, cultivating a loyal following with their highly inventive take on thrash. But following a tour bus accident, disillusionment with the music business, and finally the the departure of vocalist Mark Osegueda, the band was done. Two followup bands featuring various former members emerged in the nineties, in the forms of The Organization and Swarm, both featuring styles quite different from their thrash roots. Finally, in 2002, four of the five original members got back together and officially reformed the band. Since then they've released a slew of successful albums that marry their early thrash sound with a more modern aggression, and have re-established their position as a top-tier thrash band.

Recent album: Humanicide, released on May 31, 2019.
