The Black Angels are back after a four year hiatus and are now part off the acclaimed Partisan Records roster. Death Song will be their debut. It was seven years ago that they visited HearYa HQ. The video Entrance Song still remains one of the favorite videos that we (by we, I mean Shirk and his merry band of pranksters) ever did. Here’s some info on the album.
Written and recorded in large part during the recent election cycle, the music on ‘Death Song’ serves as part protest, part emotional catharsis in a climate dominated by division, anxiety and unease. “Currency,” a strong contender for the heaviest song the band has ever put to wax, meditates on the governing role the monetary system plays in our lives, while slow-building psychedelic earworm “Half Believing” questions the nature and confusing realities of devotion.
