"Afterlife" is a concept album that plunges listeners into the cosmic saga of an interdimensional entity, a being that regards all life in our universe as a dire menace to existence itself. The story unfolds as it sets its sights on the transformed human species, forever altered by the cataclysmic events detailed in Angel Rising's earlier masterpieces. The album cover, featuring the valiant hero Asai battling hordes of the undead, hints at the even greater peril awaiting him.
Angel Rising, a solo endeavor that arose from the crucible of Marseille in 2020, draws inspiration from the old-school thrash and death scene, channeling influences like Sepultura, Metallica, and Death. These classic influences are seamlessly interwoven with modern and progressive elements, resulting in a mesmerizing, technically virtuoso soundscape.
The lineup for Angel Rising consists of: Angel Rising: Guitars, Bass, Drums, Vocals Guest Singer: M.Fox (clean vocals on "Worn Out Blood" and "Dominion")
