@ The Underworld, Camden

Review By Paul James

Photography by Ashlinn Nash



Having missed Death Angel on their last trip to these shores, I couldn’t wait to see them again (Last time was in the much smaller confines of Brighton’s own Engine Rooms) as well as hearing the upon announcement of this tour that the band would be playing the much lauded thrash classic that is their 1987 debut, “The Ultra-Violence” in its entirety to mark the 25th anniversary of its release.

TESTAMENT, ANTHRAX, DEATH ANGEL TO BRING THRASH-FEST EXTRAVAGANZA TO CANADA AND SELECT U.S. CITIES

May 31st, 2012
ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT, DEATH ANGEL TO BRING THRASH-FEST EXTRAVAGANZA TO CANADA AND SELECT U.S. CITIES

ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT, DEATH ANGEL TO BRING THRASH-FEST EXTRAVAGANZA TO CANADA AND SELECT U.S. CITIES

LOS ANGELES, CA – May 31, 2012 — Fans in Canada and select cities in the northern part of the U.S. will finally have a chance to see what reviewers have called “The Best Metal Tour of the Year,” when co-headliners Anthrax and Testament, joined by Death Angel, kick off a late-summer trek on September 14.  Starting in Portland, OR, the bands will work their way north, cross into Canada, and play all of the major Canadian cities before wrapping up in Montclair, NJ on October 5.  Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 1.  For more information and to purchase tickets, log onto http://anthrax.com – http.//www.testamentlegions.com or http://deathangel.us

 

This run will be the third leg of the Anthrax/Testament/Death Angel hat-trick; the three bands packed five weeks worth of venues coast-to-coast last Fall, marking the first time Anthrax and Testament had shared a stage in more than a decade; again, earlier this year, the line-up played another dozen dates to headbangers in cities from Las Vegas to New York.

 

According to Anthrax’s guitarist Scott Ian, “We played to sold-out shows, raging crowds and EPIC war dances, and we can’t wait to do it again, especially for our Canadian fans who have been waiting a long to time ‘worship music’ with us.”

 

“There have been very few three band bills in which the acts are so compatible and the shows so consistent that a second leg of the tour is a “no-brainer,” said Testament’s lead guitarist Alex Skolnick.  “But in the case of Anthrax, Testament and Death Angel, that’s been the case. Things have gone so well, in fact, that it’s made sense to add a third leg with this exact same line up.  All three bands are excited to take this show into new territory with a trek across Canada, and a few spots in the US we missed last time around. And this time, Testament will be armed with a brand new album with music that we’re eager to share with everyone. Hope to see you out there!”

 

“We’ve been tight with the guys in Testament for a long, long time, and had a great time touring with them before,” added Anthrax’s drummer Charlie Benante.  “And all of us in Anthrax are big Death Angel fans, so this is going to be a monster of a great time, for us and for the fans.”

 

Said Testament’s frontman Chuck Billy, “It’s good to see that metal is alive in 2012 and the fans want a third leg of the Anthrax, Testament, Death Angel tour. Don’t fucking miss it!  Metal Forever!”

 

With more dates to be confirmed, the Anthrax/Testament/Death Angel tour are as follows:

14        Ace of Spades, Sacramento, CA

ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT, DEATH ANGEL TO HIT THE ROAD WITH THIS FALL’S DON’T-MISS THRASHFEST EXTRAVAGANZA

September 6th, 2011
Anthrax 2010

Anthrax

LOS ANGELES, CA – Tuesday, September 6, 2011 — Thrash titans Anthrax and Testament, who haven’t toured together in more than a decade, are set to co-headline a U.S. tour beginning Friday, October 14 in Grand Rapids, MI (itinerary below). Anthrax will close all shows, and Death Angel will be main support for the entire tour. The coast-to-coast trek will figure to decimate more than two dozen cities over a five-week period, with both Anthrax and Death Angel debuting brand new material from their new albums, both set for summer/fall release; Testament’s new album is set to be released in 2012.

 

The Anthrax fan club presale begins today at www.anthraxarmy.com, and the public on-sale kicks off Friday, September 9 at 10AM local time. For more information or to purchase tickets, log onto http://anthrax.com http://www.testamentlegions.com/ or http://deathangel.us/

 

“We’ve been tight with the guys in Testament for a long, long time,” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante. “so we’re really looking forward to hanging out with them on the road. And all of us in Anthrax are big Death Angel fans, so this is going to be a monster of a good time – for all of us and for the fans. Plus, with the incredible success of The Big Four shows over the last year, we wanted to tour with some of the ‘second wave’ of thrash bands.”

 

The tour will follow Anthrax’s Big Four “hometown” appearance at Yankee Stadium on September 14, with Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth.

 

“We’re excited to do this tour because Anthrax was actually the first band we ever toured with,” adds Testament vocalist Chuck Billy. “It’s an accomplishment 20 odd years later that we’re going to do it again. The tour kick-off date is actually about five days difference from the kick off date of the first tour 20 years ago. The first time we performed with Anthrax, we only had a total of ten songs, so obviously now we have many songs to pick from so it will be very different. It’s good to see that a lot of the faces in the bands are the same as back when we first did this original tour 20 years ago.”

 

Dates are subject to change and more will be announced – the itinerary for the Anthrax/Testament/Death Angel Fall 2011 tour is as follows:

Heavy TO

Heavy T.O.

July 23-24, 2011

Review and pics by Monika Deviat

 

On July 23rd and 24th, 10 000 metalheads descended upon Downsview Park in Toronto ON for Heavy T.O. The two day festival took place the same weekend as Heavy MTL. This was the third year for Heavy MTL and its success from right from the first year prompted MTL organizers Daniel Glick and Nick Farkas to team up with Live Nation to create Heavy T.O. Two stages had bands playing right after each other, about 11 per day. Heavy T.O. sponsor, Jägermeister had a tent area set up with games and were hosting some of the autograph sessions. Certain bands like Megadeth and Slayer had line-ups of over a hundred people waiting to get signatures from their favorite musicians.

DEATH ANGEL – Vocalist Mark Osegueda

March 17th, 2011

Death Angel logo.jpg

Mark Osegueda of Death Angel

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

On/offstage pictures by Terhi Pihlaja

Much thanks to both Silke of Tough Enough Promotion and Flo for setting up the interview with Mark 

Mark1.jpg

Death Angel – among so many other Bay Area thrash metal acts like Testament, Exodus, Vio-lence, Heathen, Forbidden, Defiance and so forth, has come a long way from the times of their monstrously wicked thrash debut, THE ULTRA-VIOLENCE. Many people still consider their best album to dat when the band seems to spend months on tours, just like back in their old days.

It’s been almost 30 years since the formation of the band and Death Angel´s engine is still in excellent shape, just like their energetic live performances have proven for many of us lately. Witnessing Death Angel playing live at Sauna Open Air Metal festival in Tampere, Finland on Friday, 11th of June, simply kicked each and everyone of us fully awake in the venue. These fine Cali-thrashers seem to get better as they age over the years, just like an old wine.

I managed to hook up shortly with the band´s always polite and smiling frontman Mark Osegueda in the dressing room of the band after the show – and naturally I couldn´t help but ask him some details about their 6th studio, titled RELENTLESS RETRIBUTION, which by the words of Mark himself, contains some of  ´the most technical and aggressive´ stuff they´ve ever recorded since the classic ULTRA-VIOLENCE album. Of course the old times weren´t left untouched completely either…  

(NOTE: This interview was done in June 11th 2010)
