Italian melodic death metal act Dying Awkward Angel will release the new album "Absence of Light" - the band's sophomore full length release - via Rockshots Records on May 25th. Pre-orders can be made at this location.
Initially formed two decades ago in Turin, Dying Awkward Angel is a total testament to the strength and convictions of true metal. Enduring line-up changes and travails that would have crushed a lesser band, Dying Awkward Angel refused to die…instead they have thrived! Inspired by In Flames, At The Gates, Carcass, Dark Tranquillity, in 2013, the band finally unleashed the debut full length album "Waiting For Punishment," following it in 2016 with a well-received EP entitled "Madness Rising."
Now in 2018, the band's current line up with founding member Edoardo Demuro on guitar, Luca Pellegrino on drums, Lorenzo Asselli on guitars, David Onidaon bass and Michael Spallieri on vocals will be releasing the next full length "Absence of Light." Guitarist Edoardo Demuro comments: “We started with the only goal of destroying everything…Over the years we have been working to achieve a more solid and understandable sound. We have created the very personal Dying Awkward Angel sound…'Absence of Light' is a new era for us; the first official release, a mature sound, an increased richness of themes, a real powerful new voice on our music. You can see it as the might of God, when it doesn’t give you what you expected. This new chapter of Dying Awkward Angel is heavy, fast, powerful, dark and bright at the same time. We hope to give the fans the same emotions we have when we play! We hope they have a lot of fun!”
