Heavy metal scene is actually swarming with cross-genre bands, and then there are a few like Death Angel. Over thirty years, and they still wield an uncompromising intense arsenal of old school thrash. Decked with stunning guitar harmonies, intricate progressions and ultra-thrashy riffs — ‘The Evil Divide’ is a new album with mid-80s sound. Thrash at its creative best.
With that NWOBHM train of break neck riffs and pristine melodic hooks, Death Angel is elegant and aggressively loyal to their founding roots. They are sort of unique in persisting with this age old musical terrain. As expected, most of their illustrious contemporaries have mellowed, and now fear to tread through these very furious paths.
