SUICIDAL ANGELS Announce New Bassist

Greek old-school thrashers SUICIDAL ANGELS have issued the following update:

"After the departure of our former bass player, we had a problem that needed to be fixed. To be more specific, there's a European tour coming up (more news on this soon!) and suddenly the bass player position became vacant. So we called a good friend, Angelos, a skilled bass player that could definitely help us out with the tour, and asked him if he would care to do some session work for us. The thing is, we'd like him to be a full member in the first place, but he was a bit preoccupied with other bands and we didn't know if he could do it. However, he gave it some thought, decided to go for it and hence we are in the pleasant position to welcome him as the new SUICIDAL ANGELS bass player.

"Our Greek friends will be the first ones to see him on stage, as our next concert will be supporting DEW-SCENTED in Athens (on February 27). We hope for a warm welcome!"

SUICIDAL ANGELS will enter Prophecy and Music Factory Studios in Germany in March with producer R.D. Liapakis (MYSTIC PROPHECY) to begin recording its second album. According to the band, "The yet-untitled record will contain nine tracks of pure thrash metal. One of the songs, 'Jesus Lies', has already been performed live in various occasions and can also be heard through our upcoming DVD, 'Live Domination'. This song will give you an idea of the straight-in-your-face approach we have adopted while writing new material that we hope you like."

SUICIDAL ANGELS recently struck up a deal with OSM Records for the release of its new DVD, "Live Domination". The disc, which was filmed in May 2008 concert in Athens, will be made available in early 2009. According to the band, "the DVD will feature the whole show and 100% live sound. No overdubs whatsoever! It will also feature our two video clips off 'Eternal Domination' and a full band biography.

"Though we feel quite confident about picture and sound, we certainly don't pretend that our self-financed release meets the highest quality criteria. Therefore expect the price to be substantially low, compared to major band DVD releases. We certainly do not wish to rip anyone off!

"The front cover of the DVD package, designed by George 'Grin' Prasinis, [can be viewed below]. George has designed almost all SUICIDAL ANGELS artwork to date and we believe he once again did a killer job. We hope you like it as well!"

SUICIDAL ANGELS' debut album, "Eternal Domination", was released in July 2007 via OSM Records.
