Thrash metal band from Athens, Greece formed in early 2001, a time when founder Nick Melissourgos was only 16 years old. The musical steps the band was meant to follow were leading to the realm of old school thrash metal, Nick's major musical influence. That's pretty much obvious in the band's first demo, "United by Hate" (July 2001), which is nowadays extremely difficult to find.

Back then Suicidal Angels were more of a school band having a good time. After some early line-up changes though, Nick meets Orfeas Tzortzopoulos (drums), and a unique musical chemistry is born. The band records its second demo, "Angels' Sacrifice" (December 2003) and things gradually become more serious. Based on this demo, the band starts promoting itself and the first concerts are scheduled.

During April 2004 Suicidal Angels record a new demo called "The Calm before the Storm", which receives good reviews in metal magazines and fanzines throughout Europe. In September 2004, the band releases an EP called "Bloodthirsty Humanity", which receives even better reviews compared to the previous demos. Meanwhile, the group tries to perform live whenever possible.

It was shortly after the show with Tankard in October 2004, when Themis Katsimichas (guitars) joined the band, at first just to help with the first ever gig abroad (Bucharest, 2005) and then as a full member, teaming with Nick to create a fast and technical thrash guitar duo.

During Fall/Winter of 2005 the band records a four song mini CD called "Armies of Hell", which gets distribution by EVIL RECORDS and hits the stores in Greece in early 2006. The reviews from European metal magazines were once again very encouraging.

In April 2006, bass player Christine decides to leave the band and is replaced by Sotiris Skarpalezos shortly after. The band continues to perform live in concerts both in Greece and abroad (Germany and Poland, Summer 2006).

On October 16, 2006, Suicidal Angels sign their first record deal, with California based OSM Records. The plans for the recording of a full length album are in motion...
