Destroying Angel was born into the world in the winter of 2013 in Philadelphia. Originally a very stripped down folk project, they quickly grew from a 2 piece to a 5 piece. Incorporating synths, piano, violin, samples, bass, guitar and percussion Destroying Angel strive to bring together their love for 60's acid folk/rock and post punk/industrial music to create something both dark but beautiful and uplifting. Fueled by the song writing and vocals of Anthony Cesa the content of Destroying Angel begs the old questions - What are we? Where are we? Where do we go in our dreams? The love of nature and an appreciation both aesthetically and spiritually for the mystery of this existence is a constant theme throughout the lyrical content sound of the music. Our musical and artistic counter cultures and our strongest thinkers have always encouraged us to achieve what we desire and to treat one another with respect and consideration. Destroying Angel would like to encourage this attitude as well. Recognizing the divine qualities in ourselves and each other is the first step away from the sterile consumer state of mind. HAIL you, me and all of us.
