I hope this comes true, i've been a fan of Dark Angel since 2009, and if it so happens that the orginal line-up that recorded the legendary "Darkness Descends" rejoins, things are looking good for 2013.

Here's the official announcement from Vibrations of Doom's official facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Vibratio ... ion=stream
Well, folks, you read it here FIRST... I was totally SPOT ON about that Dark Angel reunion... Direct from Dark Angel's publicist Maria Ferrero, this is the ACTUAL press release I received this morning:

Due to the recent rumor-inducing statements made by estranged EX-DARK ANGEL singer Don Doty, the band is forced to offer a premature release of information.

DARK ANGEL will reform for a limited number of appearances in 2014 in the US and select festivals in Europe. These dates are still pending and have not yet been booked at this time. The confirmed line-up for these rare and unique, select 2014 shows features Gene Hoglan (drums), Jim Durkin (guitar), Ron Rinehart (vocals) and Michael Gonzalez (bass).

The lack of responsibility that Don Doty is displaying by posting false information and unfounded rumors is creating confusion for DARK ANGEL fans. There is no “Team Don Doty” or “Team Ron Rinehart”. There is ONLY DARK ANGEL. We will not be a part of anything that damages this band and its reputation.

All future official statements will come from DARK ANGEL’s Management.

Well, folks, I told ya... I will probably attend whatever reunion show comes close to the metro Atlanta area (READ: It's not a priority tour if they don't make a stop in Atlanta), but disappointed am I at this recent turn of events... That being said, I knew it wouldn't be with Don at the helm... THAT to me is the ONLY PROPER Dark Angel reunion.... Steven OUT!!!

I saw this past sunday Dark Angel at the Neurotic Deathfest in Holland, and I had the chance to speak with Jim Durkin: he told me that after they are done with all gigs, they will record a new album and even use songs from the famous "Atrocity Exhibition" demo!

FUCK... Maybe I was wrong about Rhineheart after watching that STUNNING performance in Chile!! Hitting all the damn high notes, Jesus, what an AMAZING turnout in Chile! It looks like Iron Maiden's crowd mass wise... And those Chilean flags with Dark Angel logos sewn into them? Like TWO of them... Band sounds tight man... I may SERIOUSLY have to rethink my position on Rhineheart's fronting this band...

It's sad that there still has not been a full union yet. There's been a number of interviews with different members over the last few years, and it appears time and distance are their biggest issues. We did get a Dark Angel tour here in Australia last year but alas no album.

Gene did an interview in August (a few weeks ago) with Ted Aguilar from Death Angel and said they are still attempting to get the new album written. Isolation has screwed them up a bit but even before isolation they struggled to find time to get together because of distance between.

Gene is still hopeful something is happening, but then again when is Gene ever not hopeful of things?
