Profile:
Thrash Metal band from Athens, Greece formed in early 2001 by Nick Melissourgos at the age of 16, influenced by old-school thrash metal.

In April of 2004 they recorded "The Calm before the Storm" which received good reviews in Europe. The following September the band released "Bloodthirsty Humanity" and performed live with Tankard, Themis Katsimichas (guitars) who then on joined the band first as a session member then permanently.

2005-2006 The band records "Armies of Hell" which gets distribution by Evil Records and hits the stores in Greece in early 2006. In April 2006, bass player Χριστίνα Γεμιδοπούλου [Christine] decides to leave the band and is replaced by Sotiris Skarpalezos shortly after. The band continues to perform live both in Greece and abroad. On October 16, 2006, Suicidal Angels sign their first record deal with the California based OSM Records.

2007-2008 Recordings of "Eternal Domination" started in January. It was mixed and mastered by Colin Davis in L.A. In April they toured with Rotting Christ on the Theogonia Balkans tour 2007. In May of 2007, they supported Kreator in Athens, Greece. Mille Petrozza was truly impressed by the band's performance and to the band's astonishment he appeared on stage wearing a Suicidal Angels t-shirt. They toured with Onslaught promoting "Eternal Domination". On May 11 they presented the album to the Greek audience at their hometown, Athens. In October they supported Nile in Athens, Greece. In December 2008, bass player Sotiris Skarpalezos left the band.

In March 2009, they entered the studio Prophecy & Music Factory Studios, Germany with the producer Roberto Dimitri Liapakis and recorded "Sanctify the Darkness". They also took part in the Rock The Nation Awards which was held in partnership with Nuclear Blast Records, Boomer Entertainment and magazines from all over Europe such as Metal Hammer (D, I, GR, E), Terrorizer UK, Rock Tribune B, Scream NO, Metallian F and Spark CZ.
