Israfel is a brutal death metal band that was formed in 2005, in Albany, New York. Their debut was released in 2009 by Nice to Eat You Records, titled Chainsaw Gynecology. Their name comes from an archangel in Islam. In Arabic the name means "The Burning One".
Israfel holds his holy trumpet to his lips century after century, awaiting the signal from God to sound it at the Last Judgement. At this time he will descend to Earth and stand upon the holy rock in Jerusalem.
