Angelus Apatrida

June 1, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Thursday, June 1, European thrashers, Angelus Aptrida, head to Youngstown, Ohio. Doors at 7PM and the show is at 8PM. Tickets are $17 in advance and $22 day of show.

Formed in March 2000, Angelus Apatrida have more than earned their reputation as modern thrash metal greats. One of the few Spanish bands to enjoy sustained international recognition, the band burst onto the global scene with their 2006 debut Evil Unleashed and have never looked back.

A close-knit four-man unit, Angelus Apatrida inked a deal with Century Media records in 2009: an unexpected achievement for a Spanish metal band, but one that they grabbed with eight hands. With the always consistent line-up of frontman/guitarist Guillermo Izquierdo, bassist Jose Izquierdo, drummer Victor Valera and guitarist David Alvarez, Angelus Apatrida have steadily evolved, releasing a series of stunning, genre-redefining records that belonged squarely in the thrash metal realm while never sounding quite like any other band. They reached an obvious creative peak with 2018’s widely acclaimed Cabaret de la Guillotine, but as Guillermo explains, Angelus Apatrida are always looking for new ways to wreck necks and flatten skulls.

“It’s been a natural evolution – it’s been the same four people all the way along, and we’ve already released six albums and toured almost the entire world,” he says. “We just try to improve ourselves, learning from each other and learning from other bands, bigger bands and smaller bands too. We try to learn from everybody. But the way we compose, the way we record, the way we do everything has stayed the same. There’s only one goal, which is to always try to find the best sounds we can and to always make the next album better than the previous one. So far, I think we’ve done that, in my own humble opinion!”

Not many bands last for two decades with their credibility and passion intact. But Angelus Apatrida are not like other bands: this is state-of-the-art, multi-dimensional and monstrous thrash metal, with a big heart and a skull full of rage. Forged in turmoil but full of the hope that only music can inspire, Angelus Apatrida is the pulverising metal record that the world needs right now. The future may be uncertain, but class is eternal.
