About:

Capturing the classic Thrash sound of the Big Four in their prime; early Metallica, Testament, Slayer, and Megadeth as well as lesser known cult heroes Exodus, Annihilator, Forbidden and Havok. FALLEN ANGELS is influenced by a wide range of 80’s thrash as well as classic metal from the 70’s and 80’s. The band combines these elements in a fresh, modern sounding album with the explosive riffs and solos that one might have expected to hear on the radio around 1989. FALLEN ANGELS is a band that Thrash fans and more classic Metal oriented fans can agree on because the music is catchy but also very aggressive.

Metal Odyssey’s METAL Pick Of The Day Is: FALLEN ANGELS “Nightmare” (Lyric Video)

Fallen Angels - World In Decay - promo album cover pic - 2015

FALLEN ANGELS – Seattle Washington’s FALLEN ANGELS have taken me by incredible surprise this year, with their enormously grand album of Thrash Metal glory titled: World In Decay. As an older Thrashaholic like myself, I feel reassured that old school Thrash Metal will live on, due to the likes of FALLEN ANGELS. What a thrill this album is from these fine Thrashers! Holy shit it’s really good.

Track #2 on World In Decay is Nightmare (listen below). While listening to Brad “Bradzilla” Kennaugh on vocals, he takes me back to a time when Thrash on vinyl was freaking king. Erik Hanson and Matt Be Roth are the guitar duo that blazes through this song below, like hell’s wildfire out of control! Bassist Carl Larsson and drummer Steve Spitzbart kick ass. How’s that for being plain-speaking? Whoa.

Look for World In Decay to make a STRONG showing in my year-end list of Best Metal Albums of 2015. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Wanna See Some Of My VENOM Stuff? It’s All Really Cool…

Posted in Black Metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on July 19, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

VENOM – Whoa. Check out (above) that cool front cover for my issue of Zero Tolerance. This is the December 2011/January 2012 issue – #44. Cronos, the legendary classic member, bassist and vocalist of Venom gives one hell of an interview in this issue. After reading this interview, I really admire the up-front nature of Cronos. He tells it like it is. Old school is Cronos and his band Venom is back like a pit viper!

This leads me to the most recent Venom release…

Fallen Angels. The 13th album overall from Venom, Fallen Angels was released back on November 28th, 2011, via Spinefarm Records / Universal. I actually won this CD you see above from a bet I made with Best Metal Buddy Scott Coverdale. What was the bet? It was a “straight-up” bet that my beloved New York Giants would defeat the hapless New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. My NY Giants won, 21 to 17. Thank you, Coverdale!

What an album Fallen Angels is. This is as rabidly potent a Venom lineup as there has ever been, (with no insult to the classic Venom lineup of Cronos, Mantas and Abaddon). No studio trickery. No bullshit. Just F’n old school Metal, the way it was meant to be played and heard… courtesy of Venom.

Here is the back cover of Fallen Angels:

And now, I’ve saved the best for last…

How influential and pioneering is this Venom debut! Welcome To Hell was released back in 1981, via Neat. I’ve had this cassette version of Welcome To Hell for a very, very long time. This debut from Venom is 100% Metal history 101, my Metal brethren!

So many genres of Metal can thank Venom for their establishing such a raw & speed driven sound; establishing this sound so early on during the NWOBHM movement. Venom paved a Metal path for countless Thrash and Black Metal bands; it’s nearly mind-boggling to grasp.

See for yourself, how Venom is misspelled on this cassette’s spine. It reads: Venon. Who the hell was dumb enough to misspell Venom this way? Whoever was responsible for this printing error was obviously a constipated poser and a turd. Blasphemy!!

Maybe this “Venon version” of Welcome To Hell is worth a blackened fortune? I just don’t know. I’ll never part with this cassette anyways, unless someone offers me six figures for it.
