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« (NuclearBlast). 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.
“We’re collectively focused,”says Mark. “Rob and I have grown a lot as songwriters, and the entire band is tighter than ever. We knew what to expect sonically with Jason, but we wanted to push things in a different direction. The production and drum, bass, and guitar tones are more organic. He’s got such a great ear and nailed it. It’s like we confidently hit our stride.”
“Everybody feels lost at some point in their lives,”explains Mark. “It’s that sense of self-awareness or lack thereof that comes through in the lyrics. No one’s immune to it. That time can be a fleeting week or a matter of years where you don’t know what’s going on. Music is a way to get it out and a vessel to vent. It’s a universal thing.”
“If you’re a casual fan, I hope you really get it on this album,”Markleaves off. “If you’ve been with us since the beginning, I want you to see we aren’t messing around. We’re still DEATH ANGEL.”
