The new single ‘Celestion’ is streaming now via Metal Injection. The single offers a taste of their upcoming album Casus Belli, releasing July 23.
The band commented “We are excited to premiere the first single off Casus Belli, ‘Celestion’,” said the band. “It is a high energy, super thrashy track that will take you on a rampage. Be sure to let your hair down, crack open a cold one, and let your horns fly!”
Archangel A.D.’s sound is a powerful force comprised of high-speed riffs, shredding leads and dynamic vocals.
Drawing on a wide array of musical and lyrical themes, the album delivers a powerful offering to the world of thrash whilst including Archangel A.D.’s individual sound. From the brawling bar fight fit for Lemmy presented in Bet on Death to the deeply intimate questioning of life and predeterminism in Door to the Moon, this album is a fantastic demonstration of ideological exploration through music.
The traditional elements of thrash that make up the iconic sound have a prominent presence throughout the album. Distorted guitars produce the heavy, noisy texture to deliver the subgenre’s notorious aggressive tone. Archangel A.D. haven’t been afraid to diversify their tracks. Blood of the Mountains brings an unexpected change of mood to the album with energetic Spanish guitar rhythms and soaring vocal harmonies carrying Spanish lyrics, whilst Door to the Moon presents a serene and haunting track, darkly beautiful with its deep lyrical subject matter.
Formed in 2015, the thrash metallers spent a few years performing live and developing their song writing before releasing the debut EP Warband in the summer of 2018. To date Archangel A.D. have toured and performed with the likes of EYEHATEGOD, Bobaflex, and Adrenaline Mob.
