ormed in 1984, Armoured Angel was one of the earliest examples of Australian death metal. They released a bunch of demos in the 1980s to no interest, but with the membership of Matt Green (guitar), Joel Green (drums/vocals) and Glen Luck (bass), Armoured Angel would release the Stigmartyr (1992) and Mysterium (1994) EPs before splitting.
Armoured Angel would reform, however, in the late 1990s to finally release a full-length album in the form of Angel Of The Sixth Order (1999) with the line-up of Glen Luck (bass), Yuri Ward (guitar/vocals) and Steve Luff (drums).
In fairness Armoured Angel were never really death metal in the standard sense of the word except for Ward's simple growly death vocals; the musical score being more of a death/thrash mix. They split soon after the album's release, and although there was talk of a reformation in 2001 it never panned out.
