DEATH ANGEL BASSIST QUITS BAND + THE SEARCH FOR NEW MEMBER BEGINS!
Bassist/founding member Dennis Pepa of the long-running San Francisco Bay Area metal act DEATH ANGEL played his last show with the band on October 28, 2008 at the Grand Ballroom in San Francisco, California.
Dennis Pepa released the following statement regarding his decision to leave DEATH ANGEL:
"I've been with DEATH ANGEL since its inception in the '80s and believe it is time for me to move on. Throughout my career with the band, I've brought a punk-influenced edge to the DEATH ANGEL sound, and as an open-minded musician in need of change, I'd like to diversify and explore other opportunities within and beyond the genre of metal. The DEATH ANGEL guys are my family, both literally and figuratively speaking, and I wish them luck on their future endeavors. Many thanks go out to Nuclear Blast Records and the fans, who have extended their support and friendship — I look forward to being involved in new music projects and continuing to connect with all of you."
Long-running San Francisco Bay Area metal act DEATH ANGEL has issued the following update:
