Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Blood Of Angels.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
BLOOD OF ANGELS: We are Blood of Angels. We began in 2015, and our first release was the EP “Rise of the Fallen Gods” in 2017. Our single “Odin’s Wrath” won a few independent music awards. Most notably was the Best Metal/Hardcore Song at the 16th Annual Music Awards in NYC. We got signed and released our full-length album “Failure of Faith.” With that album we toured throughout the US with Jungle Rot, The Convalescence, and Reflections of Flesh. We have also released covers “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath” for a Black Sabbath compilation, and “Teach Them How to Sing The Blues” for a Motorhead compilation. Recently we released a new original single titled “Spillage,” and currently we are writing our next album that will be released through our new label Biohazardous Records.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
BLOOD OF ANGELS: Slayer, Slipknot, Pantera, Cradle of Filth, Dark Tranquillity.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
BLOOD OF ANGELS: Our latest release is our single “Spillage.” The song reflects the direction we are going in artistically. It is a heavy song with a very groove-oriented chorus. I might be pushing the envelope by saying this, but I like to think of it as a blend between Cradle of Filth and Pantera.
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
BLOOD OF ANGELS: A high energy show of four guys giving everything they have. You will be exhausted by the end. We always are.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
BLOOD OF ANGELS: We will be planning to release as new album next year, then tour for the next two years after that anywhere we can. After that, we have a very ambitious plan for our fourth album. That will take us some time to bring to reality, but it will be worth it in the end.
