Death Angel

San Francisco's Death Angel was 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 band was also precocious, having 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 towards 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 their long-awaited fourth album, The Art of Dying, in 2004. The Archives and 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, 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. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

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 love Pandora I haven't heard death angel in 20 years. amen

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.
I just saw them at house of blues in H-town!:D Houston!!
I can't fuckn wait I'm gonna see these guys in NY at the montage music hall in Rochester on march 26th f**k yaa

Wow!! these dudes are still around? Cant believe I am still around come to think of it.
THE DREAM CALLS FOR BLOOD!!!!
Pinoy thrash!!!!'
Pinoy thrash!!
These vocals remind me of a much more aggressive Axl Rose.
Three words...Heav e n and Hell! :D
Mark osegueda totally nailed the dio vocals on heaven and hell
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.
Suck on it Edweirdo!
The guy below me is a f*g
Just another group of hacks.

Relentless Retribution The Ultra-Violen c e need to be on the discography
Relentless Retribution is one of the best thrash albums of all time. Not sure how/if they can top it. We'll find out soon!

f**king saw death angel at river theater in guernville ca scott blood ran the door oxyegen was the drummers drug; f**k ya !@#$!@#$%^&* ( )
malfnksion
Death Angel, in my eyes, kicks the patootie of bands like (new) Metallica and (any time) Slayer or Anthrax. The O (aka The Organization ) was absolutely awesome, particularly the debut. I wasn't so interested in finding out about Duke Remoullard and the Pleasure Kings.
S_MAN, you think metallica is better then these guys? anyway, seen them live with anthrax and testament. super high energy, great great live act.
class 2 metal (class 1= metallica, megadeth, anthrax, slayer, testament)
death angel kicks a**. all said that needs to be
this amazing band and overkill the most underrated thrash bands...long live thrash
This is one of those bands I know of but am not familar with. Their version of Metallicas Creeping Death f**kin rocks!
One of the best 2nd gen Thrash bands.
My favorite thrash band.
I like all kinds of music now but thrash will always be what I drive all night to.
asifari
Death Angel is one of my favorite thrash bands, theyre just soooo good. Really want the early stuff (before The Art of Dying) though...
Where's "Frolic through the Park"
elricl0rd
where's relentless retribution?
@samuel: I disagree. Death Angel is awesome but there are metal bands that are WAY more underrated than them, trust me. Obsidian Gate, Bishop of Hexen, Sirius, Melechesh, and The Meads of Asphodel are all way more underrated than Death Angel.
