Anna Strutt / Death Angel
I started listening to rock when I was 9 years old. My older siblings would listen to Linkin' Park, Limp Bizkit and Evanescence so that was what got me into the genre initially...Then when I was in my teens I started listening to Metallica, Megadeth, and SOAD, followed by Arch Enemy, Cradle of Filth and Slayer.
I love classic heavy metal as well, Iron Maiden, Priest, Black Sabbath, etc, will always be legends in my books. I have continued discovering bands ever since my teenage years and have always tried to be open minded - giving both old and new music a chance.
I heard about thrash band Death Angel around 6 years ago but didn't get into them properly until the past few years. I saw them live for the first time at the Underworld back in 2017 and they blew me away. Progressive, cutting riffs and melodic harmonies, Death Angel are a band that does not disappoint.
I'm glad to see the band has been going strong again since their reunion in 2001.
They are kings of thrash and deserve to be up there with the "Big Four"
