DEATH ANGEL Finishes Mastering New AlbumWednesday, 10th July 2013
California metallers DEATH ANGEL have completed mastering the follow-up to 2010’s Relentless Retribution which is slated for an October release through Nuclear Blast Records. DEATH ANGEL’s seventh full length was tracked at AudioHammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with Jason Suecof (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, ALL THAT REMAINS, WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER) and production duties were handled by DEATH ANGEL guitarist Rob Cavestany. The band is currently working with artist Brent Elliot White (JOB FOR A COWBOY, CARNIFEX, WHITECHAPEL) for a second time to create the new album’s cover artwork. Brent was the artist behind Relentless Retribution.
DEATH ANGEL comments: “Now the record is DONE done! Final masters approved! Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York did a brutally beautiful job, as he did with ‘Relentless Retribution‘. Completely and absolutely satisfied. So excited for you to hear it.”
Relentless Retribution sold roughly 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position #10 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. The band’s previous album, Killing Season, opened with around 2,300 copies in March 2008.
Relentless Retribution was released in the U.S. on September 14, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.
