Bay area thrashers Death Angel released their latest album The Dream Calls For Blood back in 2013 and if you started wondering when were you going to get more from them, we have great news for you.
Death Angel revealed the details on their upcoming album titled The Evil Divide along with a release date of May 27th release via Nuclear Blast and its artwork. Usually these announcements come with any sort of teaser to get the excitement about the album going and Death Angel is no different as they also have a new instrumental teaser at their website, which also features a countdown for the release date.
Frontman Mark Osegueda said the following about the album:
“When we started working with Jason Suecof for the last two records, ‘Relentless Retribution’ and ‘The Dream Calls For Blood’, we thought we were gonna do two records intense like that and kind of go back [to the more] melodic [direction of 1990’s] ‘Act III’, but the last two records, we’ve been loving so much writing that style, and the crowds have been enjoying them so much.
“In our minds, even if we think we’re being more brutal than we’ve ever been, it’s inevitable that we are obsessed with melody, so there’s always gonna be melody that separates us from, say, different thrash bands or extreme bands, because we always veer to a melody and catchy hooks. No matter how brutal we think we’re being, we like to throw in hooks, so we’re just gonna carry on how we’re doing now and try to pick as many of the young punters there and keep our stronghold on the old punters.”
Hopefully we get a new single and a new tour announcement in the next few days because that would get us really excited about it.
