Band Biographies: Angel Rising


Angel Rising is a melodic death metal project initiated in 2018 by guitar player Listenangel. He was originally invested in his youtube channel « listenangel » born in 2010 and specialized in guitar shredding, virtuosos guitar solos, tutorials and heavy metal original instrumentals. Thanks to the success of the channel (more than one million views and thousands of subscribers) famous drummer Kevin Talley (who played for Dying Fetus, Suffocation and many more) contacted him and offered his services. Years later it gave birth to the song « From the Grave To The Light », track number three on the album. Between 2018 and 2020, Listenangel composed and recorded seven more tracks, playing all instruments and vocal parts with the help of two talented and experienced metal vocalists : Hermyth and M Fox singing additional vocals on tracks two, three and five. On april 18th Angel Rising’s self titled first album was released on all online legal platforms. It is to be noted that this is not Listenangel’s first album, he was already lead guitarist and composer of the french heavy metal band « Blind roller » whom first album « God sun » was released in 1998 produced and distributed by the label Brennus Night and Day. The press reception was very positive at the time, « Hard Rock Magasine » which was number one paper magazine in France even wrote about him that « his solos followed the steps of the greatest virtuosos ». After ten years of existence and hundred of shows in France the band split up and Listenangel focused on composing and recording for his youtube channel. Since 2018, he put the channel on the side and gave all his musical energy in creating the sound of Angel Rising, wanting it to be a mixture between primal brutality and technical melodicity. The best is yet to come.
