After spending two weeks on a ventilator in the ICU of a California hospital, DEATH ANGEL drummer Will Carroll has been released from the hospital.
According to Blabbermouth, Carroll’s fiancé Leeshawn Navarro revealed via social media Monday (April 6) that “Will is finally home!!!!!”
In March, Exodus Gary Holt shared the news that Carroll was “very ill” and in intensive care. In late March Testament vocalist Chuck Billy revealed that Carroll was on a ventilator. Last week Carroll emerged from a twelve-day coma and issued a statement thanking fans for their support.
“San Francisco’s Death Angel are the product of the bustling Bay Area thrash metal scene of the ’80s. Combining serious guitar crunch and speed with technical expertise, they create complex thrash metal filled with time changes and tricky arrangements, and are considered to be one of the “big eight” of the genre, alongside Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Testament, Exodus, and Overkill. Emerging in 1982, the group found underground success with their first two albums — 1987’s The Ultra-Violence and 1988’s Frolic Through the Park — before dipping their feet into the mainstream with their 1989 major-label debut Act III. They ceased operations in the early ’90s, but re-formed in 2001 and continued to tour and record, releasing neck-snapping LP’s like The Art of Dying (2004), The Dream Calls for Blood (2013), and Humanicide (2019), with guitarist Rob Cavestany serving as the only constant member.” – All Music
