FIFTH ANGEL kündigen neues Album “When Angels Kill” an und droppen Video zum gleichnamigen Title Track

Laura Siivola

Die mächtigen FIFTH ANGEL sind stolz darauf, ihr episches viertes Album „When Angels Kill“ anzukündigen, das am 16. Juni 2023 über Nuclear Blast Records veröffentlicht wird. Für FIFTH ANGEL-Fans oder Fans von melodischem Power Metal ist dieses Album einfach ein „Muss“. Die Texte und Inhalte der letzten Trilogie von FIFTH ANGEL-Alben werden zu einem Doppelkonzept-Album verwoben, das an Helloweens „Keeper of the Seven Keys“, Pink Floyds „The Wall“ oder Queensryches „Operation Mindcrime“ erinnert, „When Angels Kill“. ist alles Killer und absolut kein Füller. Jeder Song wurde zu einem eigenständigen Werk verarbeitet, und die Doppel-Vinyl-, CD- und digitalen Versionen sind fast 70 Minuten lang.

Ken Mary (FIFTH ANGEL drummer and producer) commented:

“‘When Angels Kill’ is actually more of a soundtrack to a movie that hasn’t been made yet. This new album combines much of the subject matter from the last three albums and weaves a compelling story. It’s very easy to visualize the “movie” as you listen to this album. Overall, it’s a deep and dark story, but the subjects that the band has always written about deal with the state of mankind. Themes of media deception, war, terrorism, oppression, betrayal, natural disasters and the battle for survival are all woven in. We even reference many of the previous albums song titles in the new lyrics, which to my knowledge has not been done before in a concept album. We hope the fans will feel that this album is something very special”

The story of When Angels Kill begins in the future, when Phoenix, a young man caught in a world undergoing enormous changes, determines that the cunning, deceptive, and ruthless global leader that is enslaving billions will not subjugate him. Although it seems pointless and even fatal to resist, Phoenix joins a remnant of people that fight on for a better world. Traitorous love, catastrophic events, isolation, and impending doom darken his days, but Phoenix somehow retains his will to survive. The story concludes with a surprise ending.
