Long-established thrashers DEATH ANGEL just confirmed their participation in METALFEST 2012! Having been one of the youngest bands ever to storm the metal genre, DEATH ANGEL have become one of the flagships of the thriving Bay Area thrash metal Scene in the early 1980s. An era when one could even see Metallica’s Cliff Burton in front of the stage of Ruthie's Inn, banging his head to DEATH ANGEL’s inventive style, and speedy, complex arrangements. Now you’ll get the once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience a true uniqueness in metal history, for DEATH ANGEL will raise hell at METALFEST 2012 by performing an exclusive song selection of their 87’ classic “The Ultra Violence”! “The Ultra Violence” tracklist: 1. Thrashers 2. Evil Priest 3. Voracious Souls 4. Kill as One 5. The Ultra-Violence 6. Mistress of Pain 7. Final Death 8.
