Damnation Angels are taking the world by storm and redefining Symphonic Metal in the process. Formed in Britain late 2006, the band has gained …a reputation for huge drum beats, monstrous riffing, powerful and expertly performed vocals all blended with the massive power of the orchestra. Having perfected their live performance playing many shows around the UK with bands such as Sabaton the band decided it was time to take it to the next level.
In February 2009 the band headed to Grindstone studios Ipswich to create a new benchmark in symphonic metal with the aid of esteemed producer Scott Atkins (Sylosis, Cradle Of Filth). After many months of hard work, “Shadow Symphony” was born and with the aid of top Finnish artist Jan Yrlund (Korpiklaani, Turisas, Manowar), “Shadow Symphony” would be brought to life and the vision would be complete.
“Shadow Symphony” was greeted with rave reviews from critics stating that the band are “the brightest spark to emerge upon the UK scene in a very long time” and are “comparable with mega acts such as AVANTASIA and BLIND GUARDIAN,” delivering “symphonic Grandiloquence Metal with the emphasis on the Metal that bands such as Kamelot, Rhapsody Of Fire and Nightwish can’t seem to be able to produce anymore.”
The E.P. went on to sell well worldwide and after touring it extensively throughout the UK the band decided it was time to make the debut album. After many negotiations with record labels worldwide the band struck a deal with Radtone Music (Japan) and released their debut album in Japan on March 7th 2012 with the rest of the world to follow. The album is entitled “Bringer Of Light”, with artwork from Jan Yrlund and production from Scott Atkins.
“Bringer Of Light” was also greeted with rave reviews, downloads and pre-orders topping the Amazon Japan charts, over 500 sales in the first 2 weeks and over 100,000 views on the YouTube video Pride (The Warrior’s Way). The band have now signed a multi album deal with Massacre Records (Germany) and “Bringer Of Light” will be released worldwide in February 2013. They’re also scheduled to make their debut appearance in USA at ProgPower September 6th 2013.
