Friday night headliners were Swedish metal titans “Sabaton” who in ten years have gone from playing to 20 people at The Purple Turtle bar in Camden London to headlining Bloodstock and indeed next year headlining the SSE Arena Wembley also in London.
“Humanicide” is the best material that Death Angel has ever published. With this record, the American thrashers prove that old-school Heavy Metal sound has still a respectful place in modern music business.
Bay Area thrash metal legends DEATH ANGEL will release their long-awaited 9th full-length album, Humanicide, on May 31st via Nuclear Blast Records.
This is the best thrash album to come out in a very long time so take notes folks as Thrash is alive and well and coming to a concert hall near you very soon
they didn’t know how much they missed it until they got up on stage and the crowd was into it and having the combination of a crowd that’s into it and a sold out show.
Tonight’s bill proves, if nothing else, that Camden was made for live music. Three fantastic bands all finding a resurgence in their careers and clearly loving every sweat soaked metal minute of it.
As soon as they began playing, crowd surfers began to rain on security, there was no one song that didn’t include a mosh pit
Another interesting aspect of the album is how well the band manages to incorporate some slower, atmospheric sections without ever resorting to balladry or without even having to soften their music up a whole lot. The best example of this is Succubus, a slow and crushing song which starts out aggressive but quickly calms down and turns into something much darker and more sinister
