I'll admit I was really late on the Death Angel train.

Now that I've been exposed to heavy doses of Death Angel, I realize I had been missing out on some great thrash over the years. The Dream Calls for Blood is right up there with the best 2000's releases from old-school thrash acts. As you would expect with Death Angel there is plenty of energy, catchy hooks and fret-melting guitar solos to go-around ( The solos on"Detonate", "Empty" and "Caster of Shame" are just . While all those elements are great, what makes Death Angel stick out to me is the vocals of Mark Osegueda. Osegueda has all the hard edge you want to hear in a thrash vocalist, but combines it with a greater sense of traditional singing than most other thrash acts. The Dreams Calls for Blood is just a ripping thrash record that embodies everything I love about the genre in 47 minutes.

Standout Tracks
1.Left for Dead
3.Caster of Shame
Yeah I thought their last 2 cd's were ok. A couple of good tracks but not very good as a whole. Then I saw them live and they blew me away. I've been a fan since Day 1 and am glad to see them putting out some of the best music long after they were written off.
