After eager anticipation from fans and critics, Bay Area thrash legends DEATH ANGEL have finally released their new album, Humanicide, today with Nuclear Blast Records.

The record comes on the heels of the band’s recent North American tour with OVERKILL and just days before the band heads to Europe for a summer-long jaunt performing shows and at festivals including the mighty Bloodstock Open Air gathering which takes place between August 8th and 11th.

We asked Mark about his very public love for David Bowie and this is what he had to say…

To coincide with today’s release, DEATH ANGEL has revealed a new music video for their vicious thrash attack single, ‘I Came For Blood‘. Watch it now below;

With their forthcoming album HumanicideDEATH 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 ten songs flow seamlessly yet each leaves its own distinct impression.

The first single and title track ‘Humanicide‘ triumphantly represents the entirety of the album, immediately energising the listener. Osegueda remarks: “I wanted to write something that metal fans could really grasp onto. Something dark and intense, that still makes sense. Right now I think it’s so apparent that the earth is in a sickened state.”
