Death Angel

San Francisco's Death Angel were a product of the bustling Bay Area thrash metal scene of the 1980s. Combining serious guitar crunch and speed with a fair amount of technical expertise, they created complex thrash metal filled with time changes and tricky arrangements that, although generally loved by critics, usually failed to translate beyond a very specialized buying public. But Death Angel weren't just a band, they were family. Formed in the early '80s by cousins Mark Osegueda (vocals), Rob Cavestany (lead guitar), Gus Pepa (rhythm guitar), Dennis Pepa (bass), and Andy Galeon (drums), the group was also precocious; the bandmembers recorded their 1986 Kirk Hammett-produced "Kill as One" demo while still in their teens. In fact, drummer Galeon was only 14 when Death Angel issued their first album, 1987's astoundingly mature The Ultra-Violence via Enigma Records. The following year's sophomore Frolic Through the Park offered a few slight refinements, most notably in the uncharacteristically humorous and accessible single "Bored."

Signing with the Geffen Records hit factory the following year seemed like the next step toward certain stardom, and Death Angel left nothing to chance with their third album, 1990's superlative career highlight Act III. But despite benefiting from more sophisticated songwriting, greatly improved production, and an extensive world tour to support it, Act III somehow fell short of both band and label expectations. Fall from Grace, a carelessly assembled live album released by Enigma later that year, proved both ill-timed and morbidly prophetic, when Death Angel were involved in a horrific tour bus crash in Arizona. Galeon was severely injured, enduring a year of rehab during which Osegueda decided to quit music and move to New York. As for the remaining members of Death Angel, following Galeon's recovery they re-named themselves the Organization and released two albums in the early '90s through Metal Blade -- Cavestany also handling vocal duties -- before breaking up in 1995.

Numerous projects followed until 2001 (most notably Cavestany, Osegueda, and Galeon's late-'90s group Swarm), when Death Angel reconvened to perform at a San Francisco benefit concert for cancer-stricken Testament singer Chuck Billy. This, in turn, led to sporadic European festival appearances and U.S. club tours that encouraged the classic Death Angel formation to reunite more permanently. Signing with Nuclear Blast and bringing in new rhythm guitarist Ted Aguilar, the band released its long-awaited fourth album, The Art of Dying, in 2004. The Archives & Artifacts box set arrived in 2005, collecting a few out of print albums and rarities, and was followed in 2008 by Killing Season, a collection of all-new tracks recorded at Dave Grohl's Studio 606.

Shortly after the release of Killing Season, bassist Pepa left the band, replaced by Sammy Diosdado, an active player in the Bay Area hardcore scene at the time. Just months later, drummer Galeon also left the group, leaving Cavestany as the only remaining founding member. Galeon was replaced on tour with drummer Will Carroll and work began on 2010's full-length effort, Relentless Retribution. The group followed it in 2013 with The Dream Calls for Blood, which peaked at number 72 on the Billboard 200. In May 2016 the band dropped its eighth studio long-player, The Evil Divide. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia

I like how this song gets punk as f**k but I still prefer their earlier song. And who cares a about that big 4 s**t? It's not about who is the biggest baddest thrash bands, those were just the ones that were doing it first and set the standards, simple.

These guys are cool. After the show when they were in Indianapolis with Anthrax and Testament I drank Irish Car Bombs with Mark and had a beer with Rob when he was still in Anthrax. One of the funnest shows and nights of my life.

These guys kicked a** when they played in garages at keg parties in Concord. Andy was so young, he wasn't even visible behind the drum set. I still remember when they played on the stage at school. Fuggin Mrs Wheeler (our Principal) shut us down after we started to mosh. I jumped on stage at a club in Berkely, and sung a couple lines from mistress of pain with mark. When i tried to stage dive, the sea of flesh parted, and i landed flat on the floor. it was Kirk Hammett that helped me up.

I remember buying The Ultra-Violen c e on Enigma (with Poison's first if you can believe that) and liked it quite a bit for both the sound and rhythm, not so much the songs. I met some of them in Alaska in the mid-90's when they were trying new things. I wasn't aware of the bus accident in Phoenix until I read this bio. Thrash bands and buses. Bad combo... Great to read their still making an impact.

Who are these hack writers from Rovi think they are? where the hell is that pos place ? Many of their articles are so incomplete like this one.
There was a cassette that was produced and played on college before any of this was written and was then made into a full tilt LP.
I should know I own it.
We have arrived on Metal Storm Records 1985 Long beach Ca. The Lp followed in 1986.
