SURPRISE! Legendary thrashers Death Angel have, with no prior warning, dropped a new four-song acoustic EP, Under Pressure. In addition to a cover of the titular Queen/David Bowie jam, it includes a new song, “Faded Remains,” and acoustic re-recordings of “A Room with a View” (originally from 1990’s Act III) and “Revelation Song” (originally from last year’s Humanicide).
Says vocalist Mark Osegueda of the release:
“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!!”
Adds guitarist Rob Cavestany:
“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.”
