Artist Biography by

The Organization was a heavy metal group formed by the remaining four members of Bay Area thrash metal titans Death Angel -- guitarist/vocalist Rob Cavestany, guitarist Gus Pepa, bassist Dennis Pepa, and drummer Andy Galeon -- following the departure of Death Angel singer Mark Osegueda in 1991. Looking to survive the commercial death of thrash by pursuing a more traditional heavy metal/hard rock sound, the Organization issued two independent albums through Metal Blade: 1993's self-titled debut and 1995's imprudently named Savor the Flavor, before succumbing to listener indifference and splitting up the following year. Numerous other projects featuring all or some of the usual suspects named above (most notably the Swarm) would emerge in years to come, but 2001 actually saw the beginning of a full-fledged Death Angel reunion begin to take shape, finally resulting in 2004's The Art of Dying comeback.
