- Death is one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
The Angel of Death (commonly called Hades or Azrael) is one of the Four Horsemen prophesied to herald the beginning of the Apocalypse. In order to manifest, Death has to be brought to Earth via a summoning ritual that has to take place on the ground of a great massacre and requires the sacrifice of women, children, and demon-possessed men. The Fallen Archangel Lucifer performed this ritual in Carthage, Missouri as part of his initiation of Judgment Day.
The Angel of Death has not made an appearance on Supernatural to date, as his visage was kept hidden during the rising. The only sight was a shadow falling over Lucifer as he stood in reverence, speaking; "Oh... Hello, Death."
The song O Death was used during promos for Season 5.
Lucifer undertakes a ritual to release Death. He chooses the town of Carthage where during there was terrible battle during the Civil War known as the Battle of Hellhole. The land where it took place is on William Jasper's farm. The ritual involves killing all the women and children in the town, and then the men, who are possessed by demons, sacrifice themselves.He then performs an invocation. Death is as yet unseen.
