So many Angel bands. I remember reading in Choosing Death how David Vincent would shop Morbid Angel around to record labels and one executive told him how they'll sign the band if they'll change the name, just to avoid confusion with all the Angel bands and Vincent told him to fuck off. No qualms about the music, just change the name which doesn't make that much sense anyway. God he was an idiot.
