DEAD BY WEDNESDAY Releases New Album The Darkest of Angels, Each Track Featuring a Unique Guest Vocalist

Connecticut heavy metal frontrunners DEAD BY WEDNESDAY recently released their new full-length album, The Darkest of Angels, which features a one-of-a-kind concept – a different guest vocalist on each track! Produced by Nicky Bellmore (Toxic Holocaust, Jasta), the record features vocals from Brian Fair of Shadows Fall, Rob Dukes of Generation Kill / ex-Exodus, John Arch of Fates Warning, Carley Coma of Candiria, Eric AK of Flotsam & Jetsam, Sean Danielsen of Smile Empty Soul, Ceschi Ramos of Fake Four Inc., Antony Hamalainen of Armageddon, Kris Keyes of Gargantua Soul, Paul Stoddard of Diecast and others.


DEAD BY WEDNESDAY sincerely dedicates The Darkest of Angels to anyone who has suffered the effects of addiction with hopes that the music can help inspire the strength needed for recovery.
