Angelic Desolation

A four piece death metal band from Denver, Colorado

Emerging from Denver, Colorado's fruitful metal scene, ANGELIC DESOLATION is ready to take the world by storm.... Or slit throats in the name of Satan, whichever opportunity comes first. The band's combination of grind, thrash, and death metal, paired with outrageous horror-themed stage antics, makes for a musical presentation that audiences won't soon forget.

Dubbing their sound "American Razorgrind," Angelic Desolation released their debut EP Evilgasm in 2014. This was followed by the 2018 full-length Rumpus Time is Over, which carried the band to regional opening slots on Summer Slaughter, Bloodletting North America, and Devastation On The Nation as well as touring in the southwestern United States. Fans of Revocation, Aborted, Cattle Decapitation and the like will appreciate Angelic Desolation's brutal onslaught; Jay Medina spews guttural hatred over Matt Markle's precise guitar riffage, with bassist Chris Young and drummer Max Thunder comprising a forceful rhythm section that drives each song to its inhuman conclusion.

Now on the eve of releasing the Quorum Of Unspeakable Curses EP, this blasphemous outfit has nowhere to go but up. Reviewers said Rumpus Time is Over "annihilates all competition with its sheer intensity," but wait until they get their hands on this upcoming material -- 2020 brings more gore, more rage, and even more merciless riffs.

COMING SOON

New EP Quorum of Unspeakable Curses out September 25th!
