Death Angel isn’t coming to Southern Oregon so I’m thinking I may drive down (3+ hours) to Chico to see them. Crazy? Probably, but I’ve gone much farther to see them before (12+ hours each way in 1987, from Copenhagen, Denmark to Gavle, Sweden in 2011, and almost 5 hours each way in 2012). To not go see them when they are “only” less than 4 hours away seems almost wrong.
I’d really like to be in Northern Sweden in August of 2014 to see Volbeat, Opeth, Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy, Watain, and probably another couple dozen great bands. However, it looks like I’ll have to stick with memories of the 2011 festival for the foreseeable future.
The final touches on Death Angel’s next album are currently being made. The documentary, “A Thrashumentary” DVD will be released soon (with a photo or two of mine in it I think). All is well in the world.
Born a mere seven days after I was, Death Angel’s main man continues to write fantastic music. The first time I saw Death Angel live was just over 25 years ago. Looking forward to another 25 years of Death Angel…
