Sad news to report as Peter Hobbs, founder and namesake of Australian Thrash legend of Hobbs Angel Of Death has passed away. He was 58 years old. He died this morning at his home in Queensland, Australia. A pioneer in the Aussie metal scene of the 1980s, Hobbs first appeared with Tyrus before founding Hobbs Angel of Death. That bands’ self-titled debut album was released in 1988 through Steamhammer. The band dissolved soon after the release, but seven years later, it reformed to release its second album called Inheritance. After reforming in 2002 the band signed a four-album deal with Modern Invasion Music in 2003. Their last studio album, Heaven Bled, came out in 2016. We send out condolences out to Peter’s family, friends and fans at this time.
