Just recently, Ted Aguilar took the opportunity to speak with NRR about the current tour, new music, and breakfast foods.
Death Angel was an early contributor to the west coast thrash scene in the San Francisco Bay Area. The band has released seven studio albums, plus a variety of EPs, demos, and live albums. Some of the early success was due to the practice of cassette tape trading in the early eighties, allowing their name and music to spread virally in the days before the Internet.
The band formed in 1982 and was active until they disbanded in 1991 entering a decade-long period of limbo. When they reformed in 2001, it was with Ted Aguilar on rhythm guitar, taking the reins from original guitarist Gus Pepa. Agular has been part of the band ever since and a witness to their new-found popularity and success.
Death Angel is currently on tour with Cavalera Conspiracy, Corrosion of Conformity, Lody Kong, and For We Are Many. A recent stop in Michigan landed them at the Crofoot in Pontiac, Michigan. It was here that Agular spoke with Chuck Marshall of National Rock Review.
