The Dream Calls For Blood, the seventh album from San Francisco Bay Area thrash veterans DEATH ANGEL, sold 5,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 72 on The Billboard 200 chart. This now makes it the band’s highest charting record since their reformation in 2004! In contrast the group’s previous CD, Relentless Retribution, opened with 2,700 units in September 2010 and came in at No. 188.
Three years have passed since the release of DEATH ANGEL’s crushing Relentless Retribution album; three years of constant touring and on-the-road-songwriting. Now the band has returned with yet another visceral slice of thrash! The Dream Calls for Blood was recorded at AudioHammer Studios with Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, AUGUST BURNS RED, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, ALL THAT REMAINS, WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER), and once again features cover art by Brent Elliot White (JOB FOR A COWBOY,CARNIFEX, WHITECHAPEL).
