With their forthcoming album Humanicide due for release via Nuclear Blast on May 31st, DEATH ANGEL have maintained their throne in the universe of thrash while still managing to remain progressive in their style. 

The countdown is on for the release of legendary California thrash metal band DEATH ANGEL’s long-awaited ninth full-length album, Humanicide, due May 31st via Nuclear Blast Records.

Today, guitarists Rob Cavestany and Ted Aguilar have unleashed a playthrough video for their latest single ‘The Pack‘. Watch below;

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.

Hear ‘The Pack‘ in full below;

The first single and title track’Humanicide‘ triumphantly represents the entirety of the album, immediately energising the listener. Mark 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.”
