The mighty Fifth Angel returns with their epic fourth album, 'When Angels Kill'. For Fifth Angel fans, or fans of melodic power metal, this album is simply a “must have.” Weaving the lyrics and subject matter of the last trilogy of Fifth Angel albums into a double concept record among the likes of Helloween’s 'Keeper of the Seven Keys', Pink Floyd’s 'The Wall', or Queensryche’s 'Operation Mindcrime', 'When Angels Kill' is all “killer,” and absolutely no filler.Fifth Angel is back with a vengeance, with standout tracks such as “When Angels Kill,” “On Wings of Steel,” “We Are Immortal,” “Resist The Tyrant,” and “Empire of Hate.”
The story of 'When Angels Kill' begins in the future, when Phoenix, a young man caught in a world undergoing enormous changes, determines that the cunning, deceptive, and ruthless global leader that is enslaving billions will not subjugate him. Although it seems pointless and even fatal to resist, Phoenix joins a remnant of people that fight on for a better world. Traitorous love, catastrophic events, isolation, and impending doom darken his days, but Phoenix somehow retains his will to survive. The story concludes with a surprise ending.
