Veteran San Francisco Bay Area metallers DEATH ANGEL will release their new album, "Killing Season", on February 26, 2008 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was recorded at Studio 606 in Northridge, California with producer Nick Raskulinecz, who has previously worked with FOO FIGHTERS, RUSH, VELVET REVOLVER, SHADOWS FALL and STONE SOUR, among other acts.
In the January 2008 issue of Decibel magazine, DEATH ANGEL vocalist Mark Osegueda explains how the group's collaboration with Raskulinecz came about. "We're friends with [Canadian rocker Danko Jones], and Nick was actually working on the new Danko record about to come out," says Mark. "We were already talking to different producers, and we'd heard Danko was working with this guy, and we were like, 'Wow, how'd you get that guy?' And Danko walked into the studio one day wearing his DEATH ANGEL hoodie, and Nick went, 'DEATH ANGEL!' and picked up a guitar and started playing the riffs to 'Seemingly Endless Time'. Danko e-mailed us the next day, and suggested we send down our demos to see if he was even interested. We did — Nick loved them, and the timing worked out; he had downtime and we needed to get into the studio within three weeks. All the pieces of the puzzle basically fell into place, and it's been magical."
DEATH ANGEL's latest CD, "The Art of Dying", was released in May 2004 through Nuclear Blast Records. The group's first studio album since 1990's "Act III" was recorded at SF Soundworks studios in San Francisco, California with producer Brian Joseph Dobbs (VOIVOD, MANMADEGOD).
