Death Angel – 15/07/04 – The Garage, Highbury

On the strength of their slot at the No Mercy Fest the previous year, I jumped at the chance to see them headline The Garage, the best small venue in town. They were fucking superb. Better, even, than the previous time, a) because they were able to play a proper full set and b) because wasn’t on a downer due to the disappointment of Nuclear Assault.

The intro to ‘Thrown To The Wolves’ is legendary – a few gentle bars of classical guitar breaking abruptly into the sort of insanely heavy riff that attracted me to thrash metal in the first place. Cue drums, cue more riffs, cue bass. Cue crowd go fucking mental. Eeeh, if I were twenty years younger like, happen I’d be banging us head all over’t shop.
