About Angelic Desolation

A death metal band with a full-scale sonic assault and a sound unique enough to call their own: American Razorgrind.
 

Emerging from Denver, Colorado’s fruitful metal scene, ANGELIC DESOLATION is ready to take the world by storm…. Or slit throats in the name of Satan, whichever opportunity comes first. The band’s combination of grind, thrash, and death metal, paired with outrageous horror-themed stage antics, makes for a musical presentation that audiences won’t soon forget.
 

Dubbing their sound “American Razorgrind,” Angelic Desolation released their debut EP Evilgasm in 2014. This was followed by the 2018 full-length Rumpus Time is Over, which carried the band to regional opening slots on Summer Slaughter, Bloodletting North America, and Devastation On The Nation as well as touring in the southwestern United States. Fans of Revocation, Aborted, Cattle Decapitation and the like will appreciate Angelic Desolation’s brutal onslaught; Jay Medina spews guttural hatred over Matt Markle’s precise guitar riffage, with bassist Chris Young and drummer Max Thunder comprising a forceful rhythm section that drives each song to its inhuman conclusion.
 

Fresh off the release of their latest EP, Quorum Of Unspeakable Curses, this blasphemous outfit has nowhere to go but up.  As reviewers put it, “Those that are more privy to tech death, death metal, or deathgrind are going to eat this up.”  With their upcoming commentary reissue of their most recent releases, Angelic Desolation promises that 2021 will bring more gore, more rage, and even more merciless riffs.
