Looks like Fridays are also a good day to do some tour announcements and this is especially the case when it comes to the hard-working Thrash Metal legends Death Angel. The band just announced their first in a long, long time headlining run of North America and this is exciting news for sure. I don’t recall a headlining appearance as a proper tour since one that hit the now shuttered B.B. King Blues Club that came through in 2008. You younger Metalheads might enjoy that overview that can be perused HERE. Now scroll on down past the poster for the full on press release and a whole lot of other coolness.

With their new album Humanicide, DEATH ANGEL has maintained their throne in the universe of Thrash while still managing to remain progressive in their style. They apply a wide variety of different elements to their music, always pushing to add newness to their sound. This time around they’ve included everything from acoustic bits, to guest musicians, to even (for the first time) the notes of a piano. All 10 songs flow seamlessly yet each leaves its own distinct impression.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As much as I hate to admit this, way back in the day I was NOT really following the career of Death Angel. Sure I enjoyed the videos that I would see on MTV when such things were more common and I think I even saw them during the U68 Power Hour as well, but on that network my memory is quite faded. I say this because they have continually released what I consider to be relevant Metal and are quite exciting to see in concert. Since becoming a scribe and Metal Media Outlet for my region and whatever other parts of the world happen to enjoy my work, I’ve made up for lost time in terms of support. I’ve caught them numerous times as a support act and will do my best to be there in Brooklyn at the famous Saint Vitus Bar when they land here in November. As Mark points out just above, this is the bands first headlining run in quite some time and you know the diehards as well as the newbies need to rally the charge. I also look forward to getting a copy of the new album and plan on reviewing it when I do so. What do you readers think about this news? Are you down with the program? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you again soon for more items of interest that have come to my attention. Peace out.
