Death Angel - New Album Due Later This Year

Hot on the heels of a busy and productive 2009, Bay Area thrash legends Death Angel have been holed up in their Oakland, California studio for the past few months writing songs for their next Nuclear Blast release, tentatively scheduled to drop in September. The band heads into Audio Hammer Studios in Sanford, Florida in March, with production genius Jason Suecof on the board, to start tracking the new record. Suecof is on the cutting edge of the current metal world having produced albums for the likes of Trivium, August Burns Red, The Black Dahlia Murder, All That Remains, White Chapel, Devildriver and many more.

Rob Cavestany, lead guitarist of Death Angel had this to say about plans for the new album: "Jason is one of my favorite producers churning out some of the sickest slabs of metal out there today. I am so stoked to have the chance to co-produce our next record with him. It's gonna be vicious! The band is on fire right now in the thick of pre-production and the new songs are crushing! We can't wait to start tracking!"

When asked about the hiring of Suecof, Death Angel vocalist, Mark Osegueda, added: "We are so excited about the opportunity to work with Jason on the upcoming album. The new material is the most aggressive and technical music we have written in years. So, we needed a producer that was capable of unleashing the tones that match and compliment the over-all vibe of the songs. With Jason's experience in producing some of the most brutal contemporary metal artists and albums of today I know we made the right choice! I think the collaboration between the two of us will prove to be venomous and infectious! It will be Death Angel's first album ever recorded outside of our home state of California. We will be heading out to Jason's very own Audio Hammer studios for total immersion into what, I can guarantee, will be the heaviest Death Angel album to date!"

The band plans to post regular updates following their progress in the studio on their MySpace page and on their brand new website, so keep an eye out for that.

Oh my gosh! I've been waiting for this news for long! Finally something!
Savor what you feel and what you see
Things that may not seem important now
But may be tomorrow

Me too

Couldn't they just say.."hey guys new album's scheduled for Sept..Jason(Trivium, blah blah blah) will be doing the production". Do they really have to pump up this album knowing damn well that they aren't going to live up to the hype..
Freeze! Step away from the hubris.

Interesting news. I hope this forthcoming album will be as good as their previous release, Killing Season. I'm looking forward to listen/watch to some audio/video samples via announced regular updates from their progress in the studio.
