Death Angel vocalist Mark Osegueda spoke in an interview with Nothing Shocking podcast and revealed what he thinks about “The Big Four” bands.
“I don’t know necessarily if we were slighted, ’cause the ‘Big Four’ is the ‘Big Four’ for an absolute reason — plain and simple. But now I think at least there is a metal scene again. [Laughs] There was a while when there was no metal scene, and we were broken up anyway. But it’s now that there is a metal scene and younger kids are getting into it.”
I don’t feel slighted — I don’t. The ‘Big Four’ will always be the ‘Big Four,’ but I do think that we definitely still have to fight extra hard for respect. We’ve earned a lot of respect from journalists and fans that, at one point, kind of overlooked us.
And I think ’cause of our persistence, and, I guess, the aggressiveness of our material that has grown a great deal that I think we won a lot of people over that used to kind of scoff at us.”
