"Left For Dead", the new video from San Francisco Bay Area metallers DEATH ANGEL, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Tommy Jones, who has previously worked with SOILWORK and TESTAMENT, among others.
"Left For Dead" is taken from DEATH ANGEL's seventh album, "The Dream Calls For Blood", which sold 5,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 72 on The Billboard 200 chart.
DEATH ANGEL's previous CD, "Relentless Retribution", opened with 2,700 units in September 2010. The band's 2008 effort, "Killing Season", registered a first-week tally of around 2,300. This number was in line with the performance of its predecessor, "The Art of Dying", which premiered with around 2,100 copies back in May 2004.
Released on October 11, 2013 in Europe (except for the U.K. where it arrived three days later) and October 15, 2013 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records, "The Dream Calls For Blood" was recorded at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, AUGUST BURNS RED, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, ALL THAT REMAINS, WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER),and once again features cover art by Brent Elliot White (JOB FOR A COWBOY, CARNIFEX, WHITECHAPEL).
Comments DEATH ANGEL guitarist Rob Cavestany: "[The 'Left For Dead' video] is comprised of footage filmed at AudioHammer Studios in Florida during the recording of the album.
"Catch a glimpse into our world in the recording studio as we create, collaborate, lay down tracks and attempt to survive the insane madness of making a DEATH ANGEL album!
"Hope you enjoy this little morsel that we proudly serve up to you as an appetizer. Catch the main course when we hit your town on tour which kicks off this Thursday! Eight weeks across North America — plenty of chances to feast upon us...
"Bon appétit and see you in the pit!"
METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett on "The Dream Calls For Blood": "DEATH ANGEL have gone big yet again and delivered an album that is so incredibly fast, brutal and blister burning heavy — it's a classic earspank, for sure! Every song is a slice of heavy metal heaven and I'm very impressed — it's the best album I've heard in 2013!"
