Bay Area thrash metal legends Death Angel have surprise released a new digital EP today titled ‘Under Pressure.’ The effort has surfaced through Nuclear Blast Records and features four tracks: “Under Pressure” (Queen + David Bowie cover), “Faded Remains” (new song), “A Room With a View” (2020 acoustic version), and “Revelation Song” (2020 acoustic version).
Regarding the effort, vocalist Mark Osegueda comments:
“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!!”
Guitarist Rob Cavestany adds:
“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.”
