Official press release:

Bay Area thrash legends Death Angel will release their brand new DVD entitled Death Angel: A Thrashumentary in the Spring of 2012. See a special 12 minute trailer at this year’s Heavy Metal Film Festival, to take place in Los Angeles on March 31st through April 2nd 2011.

Death Angel: A Thrashumentary is a combination live video and documentary, all wrapped up in one thrashing DVD. The footage was directed by Tommy Jones (Soilwork, Kataklysm) and mixed by Chris Clancy of The Studio. The film gives the viewer an in-depth look into one of the longest running thrash acts out of the San Francisco Bay Area, an area known for turning out historic thrash bands such as Metallica, Testament, and Exodus.

With the band surviving a span of 30 years of activity, and nearly 25 years since the release of the classic album The Ultra-Violence, now was the time to tell the story. Filmed on the "Relentless Retribution" world tour, the film shows the bands energetic live performance, cut with documentary style interview footage. "Fly-on-the-wall" filming of the band talking about their career and footage of the band on the road, give the viewer a personal connection to what is known as the mighty Death Angel.
