DEATH ANGEL Guitarist Says New Album Is 'A Tale Told Of Tyranny, Rebellion And Justice'

Veteran San Francisco Bay Area metallers DEATH ANGEL will release their new album, "Killing Season", on February 26, 2008 in the U.S. and February 29 internationally via Nuclear Blast Records.

Commented guitarist Rob Cavestany: "'Killing Season', our latest album, is a true story that has happened before, time and time again, as it is happening at this moment. It's a tale told of tyranny, rebellion and justice. Each song is a reflection of this oppressive situation through the eyes of those affected by it. Driven by greed, the actions of those 'in control' inflict irreversible consequences upon innocent victims of the power hungry swine! The eventual result is frustration, despair, anger and finally revolution. This record speaks of truth and freedom. It also tells of the pain and suffering caused by this brutal reality we're forced to live in. Fueled by angst combined with hope, 'Killing Season' is about to begin..."

DEATH ANGEL recorded "Killing Season" in Los Angeles with producer Nick Raskulinecz, who has previously worked with FOO FIGHTERS, RUSH, VELVET REVOLVER, SHADOWS FALL and STONE SOUR, among other acts.

DEATH ANGEL's latest CD, "The Art of Dying", was released in May 2004 through Nuclear Blast Records. The group's first studio album since 1990's "Act III" was recorded at SF Soundworks studios in San Francisco, California with producer Brian Joseph Dobbs (VOIVOD, MANMADEGOD).
