Album Description:

Death Angel's "The Ultra-Violence" is a landmark release in the history of thrash metal. The album, released in 1987 on Enigma Records, showcased the band's unique style of thrash metal, which was characterized by fast and intricate guitar riffs, complex drumming, and aggressive vocals.

The album's title is taken from the novel "A Clockwork Orange" by Anthony Burgess, in which the term "ultra-violence" is used to describe acts of extreme violence. This is a fitting title for an album that features some of the most aggressive and intense thrash metal ever recorded.

The opening track, "Thrashers," sets the tone for the album with its blistering guitar riffs and lightning-fast drumming. The song is a classic example of the Bay Area thrash sound that was pioneered by bands like Metallica and Exodus. The song's lyrics are a celebration of thrash metal and its fans, with lines like "We are the thrashers, we love to play it loud."

One of the things that sets "The Ultra-Violence" apart from other thrash metal albums of the time is the band's use of acoustic guitars and clean vocals.

The album's production is also worth mentioning. The album was produced by Davy Vain, who had previously worked with bands like Y&T and Keel. Vain's production gives the album a raw and powerful sound that perfectly captures the band's live energy.

In addition to its musical qualities, "The Ultra-Violence" is also notable for its album art.

Band Description:

 Death Angel is an American thrash metal band that was formed in 1982 in the San Francisco Bay Area. The band's members include Mark Osegueda on vocals, Rob Cavestany and Ted Aguilar on guitars, Damien Sisson on bass, and Will Carroll on drums. Death Angel is known for their aggressive and fast-paced music, which has gained them a loyal following of fans over the years.

 The band's early years were marked by a series of demo recordings that showcased their raw energy and intense songwriting. They soon caught the attention of Metallica, who were also based in the Bay Area, and were signed to their label, Megaforce Records. In 1987, Death Angel released their debut album, "The Ultra-Violence," which received critical acclaim and established them as one of the leading bands in the thrash metal scene.

 Over the years, Death Angel has continued to release a string of successful albums, including "Frolic Through the Park" (1988), "Act III" (1990), and "The Art of Dying" (2004). The band's music has evolved over time, incorporating elements of funk, jazz, and other genres while still maintaining their trademark intensity and aggression.

 One of the defining features of Death Angel's music is their lyrics, which often deal with themes of death, violence, and social issues. The band's songwriting is often politically charged, with songs that tackle topics such as police brutality, war, and the environment.

 Despite their success, Death Angel has also experienced its share of setbacks. In 1990, drummer Andy Galeon was involved in a serious car accident that forced the band to go on hiatus for several years. They eventually reunited in 2001 and have continued to tour and release new music ever since.

 Throughout their career, Death Angel has remained committed to their fans and to the thrash metal scene. They have performed at countless festivals and shows around the world and have consistently received positive reviews for their live performances. Their fans appreciate their high-energy shows and the band's willingness to connect with them on a personal level.
