Infernal Masquerade webzine recently conducted an interview with guitarist Rob Cavestany of San Francisco Bay Area metallers DEATH ANGEL. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.DEATH ANGEL recently tapped director Robert Sexton (SOULFLY, THE DWARVES, MONDO GENERATOR, AMEN) to helm the band's new video for the song "Truce" in Los Angeles. Sexton previously worked with DEATH ANGEL on the clip for the track "Dethroned" (see below) off the the group's 2008 effort "Killing Season". "Truce" comes off DEATH ANGEL's latest album, "Relentless Retribution", which sold 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 10 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. The band's previous album, "Killing Season", opened with around 2,300 units back in March 2008. This number was in line with the performance of its predecessor, "The Art of Dying", which registered a first-week sales tally of around 2,100 back in May 2004. DEATH ANGEL will embark on their first North American headlining tour in support of "Relentless Retribution" in January 2011. Meet-and-greet VIP packages for the trek, which includes support from LAZARUS A.D., EARLY MAN, BONDED BY BLOOD, and HEXEN, are now available on Ticketmaster.com and Slotix.com.
