From The Press Release
San Francisco Bay Are thrash legends, DEATH ANGEL, will release their eighth studio album, The Evil Divide, worldwide on May 27, 2016 via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, the band has released the second single from that record, entitled “Cause For Alarm”, here:
The Evil Divide was once again recorded at AudioHammer studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, DEICIDE), who previously worked on 2010’s Relentless Retribution and 2013’s The Dream Calls For Blood. Mastering duties were handled by Ted Jensenat Sterling Sound in New York City. Artwork was created by tattoo artist Bob Tyrrell.
Three decades into their celebrated career, DEATH ANGEL remain as hungry as ever.
As a result, uncompromising urgency and unpredictability define the Bay Area thrash quintet’s eighth full-length album, The Evil Divide [Nuclear Blast]. The group—Mark Osegueda [vocals], Rob Cavestany [lead guitar], Ted Aguilar [guitar], Will Carroll [drums], and Damien Sisson [bass]—satiate the appetite for buzzsaw speed riffs, double bass mayhem, and scorching vocals over the course of ten new anthems.
The Evil Divide stands out as the culmination of thirty-plus years of music for DEATH ANGEL. It kicked off with legendary debut, The Ultra-Violence, in 1987. The classic Frolic Through The Parkbegan to cement their legacy and even earned the distinction of landing on Loudwire’s list of the “Top Ten Thrash Albums NOT Released by The Big 4.” The group broke up following 1990’s Act IIIonly to reunite in 2004 on Art of Dying for the next generation.
In 2008, DEATH ANGEL teamed with producer Nick Raskulinecz [Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Rush, Mastodon] for Killing Season recorded at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606. In 2010, Relentless Retribution boasted a cameo from virtuosos Rodrigo y Gabriela, while 2013’s The Dream Calls For Blood bowed at #72 on the Billboard Top 200, selling 5,400 copies first-week and earning the group’s first-ever entry onto that respective chart.
Beyond continued public praise from the likes of James Hetfield of Metallica and Robb Flynn ofMachine Head, the band’s music has popped up everywhere from Carl’s Jr. commercials toLeatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III. Their fire burns brighter than ever in 2016.
