Details and artwork for upcoming Death Angel album revealed

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on 7th August 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

It’s been three years since Death Angel released Relentless Retribution, with three years of constant touring. Now, the Bay Area thrash unit are set to return with another eviscerating thrash masterpiece titled The Dream Calls For Blood, which was recorded at AudioHammer Studios with Jason Suecof (Trivium, August Burns Red, The Black Dahlia Murder, All That Remains, Whitechapel, DevilDriver) and will once again feature cover art (which can be viewed below) by Brent Elliot White (Carnifex, Whitechapel, Job For A Cowboy). White explains:

Rob contacted me early on about doing this cover. He wanted a continuation of the work we did on Relentless Retribution. Kind of a complementary piece that featured the wolf in sheep’s  clothing again, only this time in some sort of frozen environment. I love it, I guess he’s come to be known as ‘Wolfie’. Perfect! As the concepts for the album grew, so did the details and various elements for the album cover. For example, It started as a single lone wolf, though Rob thought it important to add his pack. I guess they’re somewhat symbolic of the band. The wolves look like they’ve come a long ways, I can relate. I don’t want to try to dictate the meaning of the cover art. Suffice to say the main elements depicted in the piece are representational of the core thoughts and themes Rob poured into the album. Solar eclipse, lunar mirage, lighting from the coming storm, the killing field , blood, death, decay…those things. Though at times this one was a struggle (thanks for your patience with me DA, VJ and NB!) the album title actually pushed it to where it needed to be. I love the title, a perfect representation of the lyrics and Death Angel in general.

Jason Suecof commented on the recording process and the album in general:

Once again my metal brothers have put out an album that truly captures their live energy and originality as a band. Death Angel has not only maintained their classic thrash element, but they’ve taken every aspect of what they can do as musicians to the next level – writing, playing and maintaining an intense vibe throughout all the tracks! I believe this is an album that will stand the test of time – not just for Death Angel fans, but for fans of all genres of metal. Enjoy!

Guitarist Rob Cavestany added:

The Dream Calls for Blood is the wicked stepsister to our last album, Relentless Retribution – but even more cruel and sinister than her! It’s the first time we connected two records – created and produced by the same team in the same studio as ‘RR’, yet this release is more furious… probably because so much of it was written on the road. Brent did an amazing job with the cover art, again capturing the natural brutality of the hunted becoming the hunter… as territorial instinct turns into bloodlust! Down to the last detail, his art depicts a visual that matches our music and lyrics – making a complete package that we are so proud of! Can’t wait for you all to hear, see and feel it.  Now we prepare to bring it live!

Death Angel will be playing the Ronnie James Dio stage at Bloodstock Open Air this Friday.
