Haunted by Angels......
Born and bred in Upstate NY, Haunted By Angels was formed in 1997. Since then it has spent the majority of it''s time refining it''s line-up, musical style and image. The final pieces of the puzzle are in place, and the band is gaining some well-deserved recognition at last.
With its emphasis on musicality, Haunted By Angels strives to bring quality metal back to the forefront of the industry. The fusion of intelligent lyrics with melodic, yet heavy music has always been Haunted By Angels strongest attribute. While most bands today are easily categorized, Haunted By Angels is constantly dodging the genre bullet. Some say progressive, atmospheric, doom, black, old school, its all in there. Haunted By Angels never shys away from showing its influences.
In 2002, Haunted By Angels proceeded to break all the rules and released their long-anticipated, 14-track debut CD to the public-for FREE! The campaign that was designed as a promotional stunt and turned out to be a huge success for the band, spawning loyal fans from around the world. Haunted By Angels used the internet to its fullest to promote this free CD and continually smashed the top ten internet charts on websites such as https://www.tradebit.com, https://www.tradebit.com and https://www.tradebit.com. Haunted By Angels spent the rest of the year playing shows, promoting, networking and building it''s own expansive website at https://www.tradebit.com.
With the arrival of 2003, HBA took its sound to an even heavier realm and added a twist in the form a female lead vocalist Jane Evil. Jane came along just in time to boost the bands popularity over the edge. Jane brings her dark and seductive voice to the mix and fuses the loop between the amazing guitar work of Brian Moore guitars artist Andy Wheeler, the super tight rhythms of Minarik guitars artist Art "Iceman" McDermott, and the progressive drum work of Dave Derrig. Together they recorded Haunted By Angels second release "Season of Death" and produced a video for the single, "Fallen Angel" from the CD. From its infectious odd time opener Fallen Angel to the monolithic 18 minute title track "Season of Death". The band stretches its wings and shows its diversity. "Season" is Haunted By Angels latest and most ambitious release to date. (See included reviews).
2004 brought Haunted By Angels to the forefront opening many doors for the band. While promoting "Season of Death" the band had the opportunity to open for national acts, Bella Morte, VAST, Dokken, and Naked Beggars featuring Cinderellas Jeff Labar and Eric Brittingham. Playing such venues as the famous Don Hill''s in NYC to the Continental in Buffalo, 2004 was a banner year for Haunted By Angels with the future looking even brighter.
This is just a glimpse of the new CD to emerge from this metal quintet that hasn''t forgotten that there is more than drop C tuning in the metal world.
In the first quarter of 2005, Haunted By Angels will be finishing up its third release. After which the band plans on hitting the road to promote a new release and spread the disease.
