Angelcrypt are a WW1 themed melodic death metal band, hailing from the island of Malta. Since its inception in 1997, the band has managed to issue no fewer than 9 self-entitled releases, with its latest release, ‘The Black Hand’ being chosen to be official theme song of Banger TV’s Global Overkill series. The band has participated in a number of important festivals in Malta and across Europe, while supporting the likes of Grave, Blaze Bayley, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Memoriam and Pestilence to mention only a few.
As testament to the band’s work ethic and international achievements, in 2019 the band was nominated for the prestigious ‘Best International Achievement’ award by the Malta Arts Council.
Angelcrypt promise to deliver Maltese melodic death metal of the highest calibre accompanied by intense live shows and performances, and given that a number of shows have already been booked in Malta, the UK, Germany and Greece, 2020 is certainly shaping up to be another memorable year for the band.
Earlier this year the band announced that it had signed a record deal with Germany based Boersma Records, and that their long-awaited full-length album, Dawn Of The Emperor, was set to be released on Friday, 12th June 2020.
