The Black Angels  hit heady new heights with their fifth LP, Death Song. Like its cover art, the album entrances listeners into a psychedelic mandala of chiming, British Invasion guitars and narcotic dirges, anchored into an abyss of reverb. Alex Maas serves as the guide on this Styxian journey. His subdued voice narrates tales of fear, violence and history that wind inside themselves. The 13-year-old Austin quintet channels those highs and lows, often simultaneously, into a live show that feels like floating into zero-g space if you close your eyes. Photographer Jeanette D. Moses met up with the band and shot some downtime, as well as openers A Place to Bury Strangers, for their stop at Brooklyn Steel. The Black Angels are on tour through early June before heading to Europe in September.

While in New York last week, the band visited the Paste Studio to perform three songs from Death Song. Enjoy.
