4 1/2 stars. Death Angel should get together with King's X and headline the "cult metal bands that don't deserve to scrape the budget bins of your record store tour." I remember not liking this album as much as _Frolic Through The Park_ but revisiting it with a older, wiser and more open pair of ears I had to wonder what the hell my reservations were. Although its more refined than either of the other two DA albums, it boasts immaculate production, excellent and interesting songwriting and composing, mind-blowing musicianship. "Veil of Deception" and "A Room With a View" show a calmer, more textured side of what was essentially a really heavy thrash band. "Falling Asleep" is a great closer, and the mind-blowing hybrid funk-thrash of "Discontinued" is an insane example of an over-talented band just going balls out and laying the smack down.
* If you liked this album, BTW, you should hunt down both of the albums by "The Organization S.F." which are still in print on Metal Blade records. Same lineup here without the venerable Mark Oseguda, and sporting a more refined, melodic and funky attack than DA.

Well... as you can gather from other reviews, opinions on Act III are pretty erratic... some love it and the rest don't get the point. Rather than put out another Ultra Violence and imitate themselves, Death Angel incorporated more "accessible" song structures and the occasional funk bassline into their thrizzash on Act III, which I believe to be their finest hour.
There is plenty of thrash riffage abound, as songs like Stop and (my fav) Seemingly Endless Time prove. The songwriting is about 2,000 steps up from their old stuff, and Mark Osgueda seriously never sounded better. Excellent production, too. For Death Angel virgins, they were an incredibly young band that played bay area thrash w/ clean vocals ala Flotsam and Jetsam... around Act III they had matured (think Thrax on Persistence of Time).
Veil of Deception and Room With A View add a mellow flavor, the former being an excellent latin acoustic piece which manages to be quite brooding in spite of it's flamenco trappings. Discontinued is the song that will blow the puny minds of most metalheads, with it's slapped funk bass lines and frenetic riffing that recalls Primus in their prime. Overall an excellent, diverse album that will keep the listener interested throughout.
Standouts: the organization, seemingly endless time, veil of deception, discontinued

Death Angel was one of the casualties of the grunge movement. They had just been signed to Geffen for this CD & Geffen's priority of Nirvana resulted in the death of Death Angel. It was rumored that Geffen was looking to market Death Angel as "D.A.," which probably would have ended the same way. This album shows significant growth from stylistic tracks such as the acoustic "Veil Of Deception" and the hard and heavy tracks like "Seemingly Endless Time," and "Stop." This is a great example of what would have been the future of metal in the 1990s. If you enjoy this spend the money for the box set that has their first 2 CDs (Ultra-Violence & Frolic Through The Park) with bonus tracks and unreleased tracks. You won't be disappointed. The box was produced by Metallica's Kirk Hammett. Death Angel's 2004 release "Art Of Dying" is also recommended.

If anyone listened to "Frolic" & then "Act III", the listener would know what a quantum leap Death Angel made between these records. "Seemingly Endless Time" is a thrash masterpiece as well as the "A Room With A View" showing the advanced musicianship of these guys. Too bad this band isn't around today. They could show us what real music was all about. If anyone picks up this record and enjoys it, I highly recommend getting Death Angel's follow up to this album when they changed the band name to "The Organization" (CD Title same)

This album is at the top of my chart next to "Master of Puppets" (Metallica), "Among the Living" (Anthrax), and "Rust in Peace" (Megadeth). What I like about this album (and Death Angel in general) is the diversity, energy, and virtuosity of the band! Mark's vocals, Rob and Gus' killer guitar work, Denis's (funky at times) base lines, and Andy Galeon awesome drumming blend very well on each of the songs creating a true master piece.
If you are into rock, heavy metal, punk, and thrash, don't miss this album!
-Aki
ps. All Death Angel fans, get ready for "SWARM"! (Mark, Rob, Andy, and their new base player Mike). I saw them perform last week and they were awesome! I almost had a heart attack when I heard them play the intro to the "Ultra-Violence" and the songs "Seemingly Endlees Time," "Veil of Deception," and "Stagnant" live... Their new stuff is also great! Spread the word!!! SWARM!

Death Angel has always been about a quirky mix of metal, punk, funk and classical delivered with brutal authority. This record is a disappointment only in that it would be over a decade before we would get anything else like it from these guys. The songwriting here shows a natural evolution from Frolic through the Park and the Ultra-Violence. There's more interplay between lead and backing vocals and the lyrics are better thought out if still a bit cryptic at times.

The guitars are kicking, the drumming is powerful, the bass is popping and the riffs are killer - Seemingly Endless Time is a thrash classic. If you appreciate good vocal harmonies with interesting playing and unconventional song structures, this record has something for you. These guys pioneered putting funky stuff into thrash before Faith No More was even heard of here in the States. I highly recommend this record.
