Joining Sepultura in this headlong rush into mayhem are one of the most influential Thrash Metal bands ever – DEATH ANGEL.

But who needs HG Wells when you can see the real thing here and now at a venue half an hour from home?Buzzsaw speed riffs, double kick drum bedlam, and scorching vocals are just a few of the elements which define the uncompromising urgency that is DEATH ANGEL. Three decades into their celebrated career, DEATH ANGEL remain as hungry as ever.
