FALLEN ANGELS have taken a huge step forward since their debut, progressing both as songwriters and instrumentalists. Crafty arrangements and acoustic guitar interludes of extraordinary beauty are mixed here with head-on, merciless outbursts of speedy thrash aggression and righteous shredding. It's violent but technical thrash, reminiscent of bands like FORBIDDEN, TOXIK, REALM or ANNIHILATOR, while the harsh, gruff vocals bring back memories of DEMOLITION HAMMER, ATROPHY, DEVASTATION and DARK ANGEL. All this rounded up with crisp production and with mastering courtesy of Harris Johns.
• 2nd album of this US technical thrash metal band – with improved production.
• Mastered by Harris Johns (Helloween, Sodom, Voivod, Kreator, Tankard, Coroner...) at Music Lab, Berlin.
• Cover art by Dimitar Nikolov (Ross The Boss, Portrait, Keep It True Festival…).
For fans of: Demolition Hammer, Toxik, Forbidden, Realm, Dark Angel, Atrophy, Devastation (TX), Annihilator, Death, Sacrifice...
