Death Angel Premiere Video For Cover Of Queen & David Bowie’s “Under Pressure”

Death Angel have premiered a new video for their cover of Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure.” That single is the title track of the band’s new acoustic EP, which was released today (October 9). In addition to the cover, the effort also features a new song titled “Faded Remains” and new acoustic versions of “A Room With A View” and “Revelation Song.“

Mark Osegueda said the following about the EP:

“The ‘Under Pressure‘ EP is something I feel that we needed to release during these very frustrating times…These are very heavy times…And although it’s an all acoustic EP, It’s heavy in a different sense of the word. And music is how we express ourselves best!

These times will eventually pass and we shall all regroup and once again celebrate the other side of HEAVY that is the foundation of our truly fantastic Metal scene! Until then…Stay safe, healthy, and happy! I hope you enjoy!!”

Rob Cavestany added:

“What started out as simply expressing emotion through music as a cathartic reaction to the madness engulfing our world has turned into our first EP. Pure, raw and spontaneous, it’s also our first all acoustic release. Hoping this offering finds you well and brings warmth to your heart and soul. Together we shall overcome! Thank you for listening.”

Watch Anthrax, Death Angel, & Metal Allegiance Members Cover Mother Love Bone’s “Chloe Dancer/Crown Of Thorns”

Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Mark Osegueda (Death Angel), and Mark Menghi (Metal Allegiance) have joined forces for a quarantine cover of Mother Love Bone‘s “Chloe Dancer/Crown Of Thorns.“ You can check that out below:

Benante commented:

“What if? I always ask that when I listen to Mother Love Bone, Would Andrew Wood have sung “Release” or “Why go“? Would that TEN album have been the next MLB album? I remember sitting in Lonn Friend’s @instadude74 office when he got the Call that Andrew Wood had Died. I couldn’t believe it, WTF?? I thought that band was going to have a long career…well some of them did.

What A great album; to this day it’s one of my favorites. The Chloe/Crown Of Thorns song is a stand out, it’s so perfect. A few years ago I did a version of Chloe Dancer with Mark Osegueda @bonsloth and Mark Menghi @markmenghi at a @metalallegiance show. I think they both capture the feel and emotion on this song.

I always thought I never really finished or felt fulfilled and I wanted to do a better cover of it. Since I’ve been doing these jams this song has always been on my mind. I get goosebumps when I play it, it’s weird and emotional. I hope you Dig it! Thanks to @andylagis and @dlevanchuk for their awesome ears and eyes @roland.artists @ikguitarist @headrushfx @officialtamadrums @paistecymbals”

Anthrax And Death Angel Members Share Quarantine Cover Of U2’s “City Of Blinding Lights”

Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante and bassist Frank Bello have teamed up with Death Angel frontman Mark Osegueda for a quarantine cover of U2’s “City Of Blinding Lights.” You can check that out below:

Benante commented:

“There was a station in NY called WLIR, one of the first “alternative” stations and that’s where I first heard @U2. The song I always remember hearing first was 11 O’clock tick tock. I remember sitting on my back porch in the Bronx, bringing out speakers and listening to the radio.

I would Listen to WLIR and try to get a good enough signal for WSOU too. WLIR exposed me to not only @u2 but the @thecure, @depechemode and more.

The thing about @U2 was how their songs would hit you on an emotional level, both musically and lyrically. Til this day when I hear the opening of “where the streets have no name,” I still get this weird feeling; I don’t know if it’s happy or sad but it’s definitely something!

When Anthrax signed to Island records in 1985, we would be labelmates with @u2 (exciting). I loved the people at Island! The publicity department had such a great and dedicated crew and I would become friendly with a lot of them.

We were about to go to Japan for the first time and had a long flight ahead…I was given an advanced copy of “the Joshua Tree” album and I listened to it over and over. When I got off the plane I knew it like the back of my hand. I still can’t believe how many amazing songs are on that Album, it’s flawless.

You would think if I was going to do a U2 song it would be something from Joshua tree or older but NO! One of my favorite songs is “city of blinding lights,” another one of their songs that makes me emotional when I hear it.

I asked 2 other die hard U2 Fans to be a part because I knew they would ” NAIL” it. My Nephew and I would always play u2 songs during sound checks and backstage. We both had a kinship to their music. I knew he would Play the bass parts great, but I also knew he would sing the “edge” parts equally great.

Mark O and I always bonded through Music, u2 being one of the first. I always heard a “bono” thing in marks voice and I knew he would Bring that Vibe to this.

We all play a form of music that is very Different than what U2 play, but we have the same passion and dedication to the music we play.

It may seem odd that we chose this song but it’s really not…it’s MUSIC! it’s the thing that makes you move, the thing that gets you through the day, week, month etc.

thanks to -Bono, Edge, Larry and Adam for making music that still stands the test of time.

Hope ya dig this

Sing it to your Girlfriend, wife or whoever you feel Looks Beautiful!

all guitars recorded using Amplitube, go check out my pre set pack

Thanks to @andylagis for Mixing and @krknordenstrom for the edit”

Over 140 artists participated including members of Metallica, Killswitch Engage, Mastodon, Anthrax, Megadeth, Pantera, Judas Priest, Body Count, GWAR, Death Angel, Baroness, The Acacia Strain, Suffocation, and tons more.

Death Angel’s Will Carroll Opens Up About His Battle With COVID-19: “I Wouldn’t Wish This On My Worst Enemy And People Need To Take It Seriously”

As previously reported, Death Angel’s Will Carroll recently returned home from the hospital following a serious case of COVID-19. The drummer has since opened up about his experience with Decibel saying that he was in a 12-day coma and that he even suffered heart failure. Fortunately, he is doing better, but he is now receiving physical therapy for muscle atrophy and has been put on heart medication.

Carroll said the following:

“About three days after I was home [from tour.] My fiancee said I looked and sounded terrible. She said I was wheezing in my sleep and struggling to breathe. That’s the last thing I remember. I don’t remember the ambulance ride or getting to the hospital. The next thing I remember is waking up after a 12-day coma with tubes stuck in me and machines all around. I didn’t even know I was in San Francisco.”

He then added the following when asked if he experienced anything during his coma:

“I don’t believe in Bigfoot and I’m not an ambulance chaser. I’m not a super-spiritual guy. I hardly believe in any of that stuff but I did have some out of body experiences. I went to hell and Satan was a woman and I was being punished for sloth. I was this giant obese Jabba The Hut type creature.

I was vomiting blood and kept on vomiting blood until I had a heart attack which is kind of weird because I had heart failure during my coma. I remember rising up from Hell and floating up above my body and once I got to heaven it was horrifying there, too. It was like a Roman orgy and the angels were scarier than the demons.

I shot back down to earth and I was with some friends in a nightclub and I didn’t know why I was there. That’s the last thing I remember until I woke up. My first words to the nurse were: “Am I still in hell?” She just ignored it. As I said, I never believed in anything like that but I did see myself from above.”

He also had the following to say when asked why he thinks the disease hit him so hard:

“I snore really bad and they think now I might have sleep apnea. I know people with asthma are very susceptible to the virus so I think my respiratory issues while sleeping contributed.”

Carroll went on to talk about how the experience has changed his life:

“Across the board. My days of heavy drinking are over. I might have an occasional glass of wine or Irish cider but as far as doing ten shots a night those days are over. Smoking, including smoking weed, is over too. I’ll still take some edibles but smoking is over. I’m eating healthier and I’ve lost a good amount of weight. That’s one good thing about being in a coma – you will lose weight! (laughs). I started partying when I was 16 years old so it’s been a 36-year ride of partying almost every day. It was fun but I already don’t miss it. I don’t miss drinking. I miss pizza but I don’t miss drinking or smoking and won’t be going back to that lifestyle. “

He also had the following to say about people not taking COVID-19 seriously:

“They are fools. This is not the common flu – that is ridiculous. You really need to stay indoors and follow the rules. It’s no fun to be cooped up and I’m no fan of Big Brother but we have to prevent this from spreading. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy and people need to take it seriously.”
