Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the Bay Area thrashers. Not every band can live up to a legacy but every once in a while a group exceeds expectations by pushing boundaries in a genre they've helped create. Death Angel are one such band and with Relentless Retribution, they have cemented their Thrash n' Roll style with expert precision. Among the youngest bands ever to storm the Metal genre, Death Angel have come to be known as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the thriving Bay Area Thrash Metal Scene in the early 1980s due to their inventive style, and speedy, complex arrangements. Relentless Retribution is a testament to their tenacity and seemingly endless wealth of riffs and hooks that their fans have come to know and expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! September 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of Death Angel back in about 1991 or so when a friend gave me the album ACT III, because he said he really didn't like it. Well when i heard the album i thought wow these guys are just as good as Anthrax(who they sounded like back then) or even any of the other thrash metal bands out there. Well after that they had like a 15 year hiatus, in which they returned with The Art Of Dying which was less then stellar. After wards the album Killing Time saw the band take a more aggressive route with a lower tuned guitar sound and vocalist Mark Osegueda's vocals are more on the aggressive side even though it sounds great. Mark actually sounds better now than in there younger days, and actually the whole band just sounds better. Going through member changes has really put the band at a pinnacle in there career, and the new album Relentless Retribution is faster, more progressive, better musicianship and just has an overall feeling that the band are here to stay, which is what old Thrash needs.

At first listen some may be surprised that the band have so much energy, some may even say they sound to modern which has been the case in some reviews. Well there is nothing wrong with some new and old. The first track Relentless Revolution kicks off with a groove laden riff and drum line that has you pounding your head away knowing your in store for some catchy tunes, which this track definitely has, with some old fashion old school thrash YELLS. Claws in So Deep is a great song that will remind a lot of people of Trivium(oddly enough the producer of this album did Triviums as well). I consider Death Angel a 10 times better band than the for mentioned anyway, but the chorus will definitely make you think of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrash metal perfection from one of metal's great bands September 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
It didn't hurt that Kirk Hammett endorsed Death Angel early on, especially when they were an all Filipino band of very young but immensely talented thrashers, easily on a par with their contemporaries, and better than most, especially Megadeth and Anthrax. While they've never quite broke into the top tier of thrash acts, through no fault of their own, but the fans, who haven't given this phenomenal band its due by purchasing their music in numbers that would force more people to pay attention.
Thrash metal can be inspiring, or turgid and dull (see Anthrax, who've really only released two good albums, "Sound of White Noise" and "Among The Living"). Death Angel are masters of thrash, with Mark Osequeda's puma roar and the riffs from Rob Cavestany providing music of uncompromising intelligence, musical mastery and the ability to keep your head banging without drowning the tunes out in overplayed progressive fashion.
"Relentless Retribution" will be one of this year's highlight releases, alongside Overkill's awesome "Ironbound". Every track is absolute killer, and even sports a very impressive flamenco piece at the end of "Claws In So Deep". This, kiddies, is how thrash should be done, and it's a damn shame Death Angel, Exodus and Overkill aren't headliners the world over. They have just as much claim to originating this form of metal as those "other" big name outfits, and it's up to headbangers to see they get their due. Get anything by Death Angel or Overkill - theirs is such a quality that no album will disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars D.A. Deliver...Again March 4, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Age has not mellowed Death Angel one bit. The Filipino/San Francisco fivesome might have formed all the way back in 1982, but they can still shred as mightily as ever. Coming across as a Testament/Exodus/Metallica/Slayer/Overkill hybrid, their sixth full-length effort, 2010's "Relentless Retribution" has an endless supply of belligerent guitar shredding, sparks-spitting tempos, a rock solid rhythm section, and vehement vocals. But what is perhaps most impressive about "RR" is the fact that, despite it being produced by Jason Suecof (who has worked with such metalcore outfits as Trivium and Chimaira), it never comes across sounding like a modern record. Indeed, Death Angel deliver true, unabashed, straightforward Eighties-derived thrash metal without any "core" elements mixed in to dilute their vitriolic sound.

Opening on a strong and promising note, the politically-tinged "Relentless Revolution" spills over with crunchy, razorwire speed metal picking, pounding rhythms, chunky bass lines, memorable lyrics -- including an Anthrax-ian call-and-response vocal refrain -- and unorthodox, whammy bar soloing. "Claws In So Deep" continues blazing full speed ahead, with strong, chunky riffage, dramatic, thundering skins, and blistering solo flights. The only melody that the tune retains comes in the form of a brief, clean backing vocal line. That said, though, the nearly eight-minute-long epic does conclude with a gorgeously proggy string arrangement which comes courtesy of popular Spanish music duo Rodrigo Y Gabriela. And "Truce" also continues this scorched-earth tradition, as it is a scorching a turbo-charged thrasher. It does slip in a nicely melodic guitar solo (which comes courtesy of the above-mentioned producer, Suecof) for good measure, though.
