Attention Angels Of Babylon fans! Make sure to catch bassist David Ellefson on the road with Megadeth this summer on the American Carnage Tour with Testament and Slayer! See below for all current tour dates featuring David Ellefson! Angels Of Babylon released their Burnhill Union Records debut, Kingdom of Evil, this past Tuesday, July 27th! The record is now remastered, and features three previously unreleased tracks. Kingdom of Evil was released in Europe by Metal Heaven Records in January of 2010, and in Japan with Hydrant Music in May of 2010. Download Kingdom of Evil for free at the Burnhill Union Records website, today!
Angels Of Babylon drummer and Nashville, TN native Rhino began compiling tracks featured on Kingdom of Evil many years ago, but was patiently waiting for the optimum lineup to record and release an album. Rhino is well known for his amazing work with Manowar. In 1991, Rhino appeared on The Triumph of Steel; one of Manowar’s best selling album to date. Rhino continued on with Manowar, touring Europe multiple times and cruising through Japan between 1992-1995. Rhino left Manowar in 1995 to pursue personal interest. In the coming years, Rhino was soon introduced to Fefolt, Ellefson and Brosh, and they provided the key to his inspiration to forge ahead and complete the album.
The Bay Area’s heavy metal behemoth Testament has kicked off the summer touring season with a vengeance, joining Slayer and Megadeth on the highly anticipated American Carnage Tour! Testament are uniting with devoted fans every night on the road with their exclusive American Carnage Tour VIP packs, and shredding on stage with the original Clash of the Titans line-up. “New thrash fans that only heard rumors and never were able to witness Clash of the Titans will be delighted because all three bands are just as heavy and lethal as ever, if not more,” states guitarist Eric Peterson. “Old school thrash fans, if you missed the line-up before, you don’t want to miss this!”
