Bay Area thrashers Death Angel are about to release their ninth full length, Humanicide. They've been a remarkably strong force since reuniting in the new millennium and the neck-snapping continues with the new track "The Pack."

This one isn't a pedal-stomper, settling into a mid-tempo march that solidifies the message of brotherhood and unity. There's even some ever-so-slight nods to black metal in some of the guitar playing. Listen below.

"'The Pack' is inspired by and dedicated to our fans! When I wrote this song, we had just come home from tour and I was still feeling the rush of performing at open air festivals," states guitarist Rob Cavestany. "The energy exchange between us on stage and the mass of metal heads in the crowd is unlike any other. I wanted to capture it in a song about unity, like our song 'Kill as One.'

Continuing, the axeman explained, "Our fan club is called 'The Pack,' our fans get it! But it’s not only for them, it also branches out to represent our families, friends, team, crew... and all metal heads! We feel honored to belong to this worldwide 'pack.' This song requires crowd participation, we are SO looking forward to playing it live!"

Humanicide comes out on May 31 on Nuclear Blast. Get your copy here and look for Death Angel on tour with Overkill at the dates listed beneath the song.
