Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Courtesy of longtime fans Hells Headbangers, the first all-new recording of Hobbs' Angel of Death in over two decades has finally come to pass. Titled Heaven Bled, this 12-song firestorm of thrashing death metal proves that time has not dulled Peter Hobbs' passion one bit nor does the band rest on their laurels. Much like Atomic Aggressor's Sights of Suffering, Heaven Bled is undoubtedly infused with Hobbs' classic past, but is recast in a powerfully streamlined manner where the songwriting and execution take center stage and rawness and youthful enthusiasm are no longer the guiding principles. There's demonic fury in abundance, but it's tempered with the quiet confidence of age and wisdom, through which Hobbs loudly casts his incisive gaze on a whole host of subjects, each one more vitriolic (and catchier) than the next. Altogether, Heaven Bled is a timeless blend of extreme metals throughout the ages, sounding as fresh as Hobbs' Angel of Death's explosion onto the international scene in 1987.
