Spain is not immediately known for its internationally celebrated metal bands. We know Dark Moor and Barón Rojo, for example, but that’s about it. Fortunately, there is Angelus Apatrida to defend its honor: a speed-thrash metal band from the Spanish city of Albacete. Formed in 2002, over the years these hard-working Spaniards have gained a firm foothold in the international metal scene through their irresistible heaviness that – especially live – leaves heads bobbing and invites a thick moshpit. Angelus Apatrida is an excellent live band, so don’t miss them at HELLDORADO.
