Angelo Espino, whose work in Thrash Metal includes Hirax, Reverend (w/ David
Wayne), Dissinter, Uncle Slam, Once Dead, Vermin, LSN, and many others has
officially joined the ranks of OSM Records artist ANGER AS ART. The band
released the following statement
³This was a coup for us to get someone of his caliber. We knew that a
change was going to happen with Javier. However the timetable was moved up
very rapidly in March. It came to our attention that Angelo was available
and interested, so we made him an offer. Angelo and Dave played together in
what we thought was Hirax¹s best lineup so they have that rhythm section
vibe already in place, and it really shows when we play live. We wish
Javier the best, and we part as friends and family.²
Espino¹s first shows with Anger As Art were at Seattle Metal Fest on April
5, and also in support of Testament, and OSM label mates Laaz Rockit in
Southern California. For the So Cal dates, AAA contracted Medal Media
Productions to shoot a concert video which should see an early summer
release. More information forthcoming.
Anger As Art plan to enter the studio to begin work on album #3 (as of yet
untitled) in September or October after additional appearances in the USA
and Europe this summer.
In additional news, Anger As Art lead guitarist William Rustrum has been
welcomed into the family of artists using SFARZO Strings. ³He loves them!
Write to him, and let him explain why!²
