The album is set to be released on August 4, 2015 via their indie label Cyberdyne Records to follow 2010’s ‘Engines of Oppression’ and 2008 debut ‘Rise From Ashes’ released on Metal On Metal Records. The band also plans to tour extensively this summer, bringing their explosive live show full of thrash and shred, which they are known for as a local favorite in the Pacific Northwest.
“We want to thank everyone who has supported us, and we hope you’re as excited as we are about the release of our upcoming album “World in Decay”. We know you’ve been waiting a long time for this third release and we can’t wait for you to hear it. We hope this album will quench your thirst for new Fallen Angels music.

Capturing the classic thrash sound of the Big Four in their prime; early Metallica, Testament, Slayer, and Megadeth as well as lesser known cult heroes Exodus, Annihilator, Forbidden and Havok. Fallen Angels is influenced by a wide range of 80’s thrash as well as classic metal from the 70’s and 80’s. The band combines these elements in a fresh, modern sounding album with the explosive riffs and solos that one might have expected to hear on the radio around 1989. Fallen Angels is a band that thrash fans and more classic metal oriented fans can agree on because the music is catchy but also very aggressive.

“Pure US-Thrash” – Rock Hard
“From a savage, high-octane riff fest in “Legacy of Pain” to a mid-paced, pounding skull crusher “Descension into Madness”, Fallen Angels not only show their true ability to write thrash songs that stand out effortlessly, but are also determined to get their name on people´s lips for good – along with the excellence of their 2nd album, ENGINES OF OPPRESSION. This stuff is meant to kill, even from a long distance.” – Metal-Rules
