The new lineup of ELIMINATE, the band featuring former DARK ANGEL singer Don Doty, will make its live debut on April 8 at the Rage Of Armageddon festival in Brooklyn, New York.
ELIMINATE performs material from the first two DARK ANGEL albums, "We Have Arrived" and "Darkness Descends".
ELIMINATE's current lineup:
Don Doty - Vocals
Henry Elizondo - Guitar
Kelly McLauchlin - Guitar
Doug Williams - Bass
Greg Falzone - Drums
The previous ELIMINATE lineup played its first live show in November 2015 at Grindcore 2015 at Ukranian Cultural Center in Los Angeles, California.
Doty is not involved in DARK ANGEL's current reunion, which includes Gene Hoglan (drums), Eric Meyer (guitar), Jim Durkin (guitar), Ron Rinehart (vocals) and Michael Gonzalez (bass).
DARK ANGEL released two albums with Doty on vocals — 1984's "We Have Arrived" and 1986's "Darkness Descends" — before he exited the group and was replaced by Ron Rinehart (after a brief stint with Jim Drabos in 1987).
In related news, former ELIMINATE members Scott Owen (guitar/vocals; SUBVERSION A.D., ex-HIRAX, ex-PIRANHA) and Joe Cangelosi (drums; BROOKLYN MILITIA, ex-WHIPLASH, ex-KREATOR) recently teamed up with bassist Rich Day (BROOKLYN MILITIA , ex-PRIMAL SCREAM, ex-WHIPLASH) to form the new thrash metal outfit UNCIVIL WAR.
UNCIVIL WAR has recorded an independently financed demo in locations both in Texas and in New York. The demo should be mixed later this month in New York.
