Spain’s ANGELUS APATRIDA aren’t an ordinary thrash outfit. They’re as influenced by Bay Area greats and the terrible German troika as they are the many faces of death metal and The New Wave of British Heavy Metal. These cross-cultural, pan-generational inspirations have had a significant impact on the Albacete-based quartet. Throughout their career, starting with 2006’s Evil Unleashed to new album Cabaret de la Guillotine, the Spaniards have been inspired by but have always created something new out of their favorite bands. On Cabaret de la Guillotine, ANGELUS APATRIDA shape the future of thrash metal.
Masterpieces aren’t completed in the blink of an eye. ANGELUS APATRIDA spent the entirety of 2017 expanding upon and refining the material that would comprise Cabaret de la Guillotine. The two years prior were spent on the road supporting previous album, Hidden Evolution, where regions and continents like Latin America, Europe, Australia, and Asia were exposed to and are now full-on proponents of ANGELUS APATRIDA’s high-velocity thrash metal gospel.
