SUICIDAL ANGELS have been added to the traveling THRASHFEST package that will be happening in November/December in continental Europe. The band will be the opening act, supporting KREATOR, EXODUS and DEATH ANGEL. More information on the tour will be released shortly.
The very first demo by Greek thrash assassins SUICIDAL ANGELS was released in 2002 and ,after two more, the band released its first EP, the eight song Bloodthirsty Humanity. In 2006, a four-track cd-single called Armies of Hell was released and distributed in Greece Evil Records. The band then released full length "Eternal Domination", released on July 16, 2007, through California based indie OSM Records. It delivered even faster, more extreme and more neck breaking thrash metal than any of their previous works!
The band has done many shows and participated in many festivals, almost all over Greece and Europe and shared the stage with bands that have been a major influence of their sound, bands like Tankard, Anvil, Napalm Death, Onslaught, Behemoth, Kreator, Celtic Frost and Nile.
Furthermore, they participated in the "Theogonia Balkans Tour 2007", headlined by Greek black metal legends Rotting Christ, visiting countries such as: Slovenia, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria and Greece. Their touring activities continued with the Massacre reunion tour called "The Reanimated Tour 2007" (November 2007), during which, they shared the stage with respected bands, such as Massacre, Denial Fiend and Extreme Noise Terror. Moreover, they participated in the "Horns Up Festival Tour" in April / May 2008, this time with British old school thrashers Onslaught.
In March 2009, Suicidal Angels entered the studio (Prophecy and Music Factory Studios, Germany) under the direction of the producer R.D Liapakis and recorded the second full length named “Sanctify The Darkness”. At the same time, the band took part in the so-called ROCK THE NATION Award 2009, which was held in partnership with Nuclear Blast Records and Boomer Entertainment as well as highly anticipated print magazines from all over Europe such as METAL HAMMER (D, I, GR, E), TERRORIZER UK, ROCK TRIBUNE B, SCREAM NO, METALLIAN F and SPARK CZ. SUICIDAL ANGELS were picked final winner from over 1,200 band submissions! Now signed to the worlds biggest Independent metal label (Nuclear Blast Records for everywhere outside of North America) and booking agency Rock The Nation, the band is set to conquer the world with their old school and aggressive balls-to-the-wall thrashing metal madness!
Sanctify The Darkness was released in Europe on November 20, 2009 and in North America by Sonic Unyon Metal on June 22, 2010.

"Move over Municipal Waste. There's a new gang of denim 'n leather goons ready to thrash and burn like it's 1985." –

"It’s obvious that Suicidal Angels know their stuff and aren’t jumping on a bandwagon trying to catch the new wave of thrash revival. If you need some authentic, neck wrecking, rhythm guitar chugging, riff-tastic thrash, this is your band." –
