Armoured Angel  


Armoured Angel was one the earliest Australian death metal bands, formed back in 1984, releasing a couple of demos in the late eighties followed by two EPs and finally (after breaking up, and reforming with founder Glen Luck recruiting two new members) a full-length album in Angel Of The Sixth Order. Musically, they aren't really standard death metal except for Yuri Ward's rather one-dimensional hoarse death vocals, as the music is a more mid-paced death/thrash mixture, with Ward's guitars opting for a wall-of-sound approach rather the tight crunch of traditional thrash. Sixth Order is a bit simplistic and one-dimensional but a reasonably enjoyable album. They disbanded soon after the album's release, and though there was some talk of another reformation as late as 2001, it appears the band is no more.
