Rhode Island doom metal act SIN OF ANGELS has released a new full-length album, "In the Grip of Despair", via Obscenity Cult Records. The band has also issued a split 10" with Ohio doomsters BENEATH OBLIVION on 43rd Paralell Records, and plans on hitting the road in the coming months to support these releases.According to a press release, "In the Grip of Despair" is "more crushing than ever, with more riff-laden oozing despair, hate and drug-induced depression their fans have come to expect. The reputation the band has achieved as one of the loudest and heaviest acts to emerge from the New England scene can only increase with the release of this album." In other news, SIN OF ANGELS has announced the return of guitarist Todd Laskowski (WARHORSE, AS HEAVEN TURNS TO ASH). Todd was part of the group's original lineup, along with drummer Ray McCaffrey, and was instrumental in crafting the band's current sound. Conceived in early 2003 by Ray McCaffrey, Josh Maher and Todd Laskowski, SIN OF ANGELS recorded and self-released a two-song demo, "The Dark Sky Sessions", which contained early versions of "At Journey's End" and "Dark Sky Prophecy" (later re-recorded and released on the 2005 full-length "From the Ashes").
