Angels are scary
In the scene where the angel gets sent down to tell the demons to let Dante and Virgil on through hell, he reminds me of a terrifying high level corporate figure being sent down to take inventory in a warehouse. This scary angel wasn't too surprising to me especially when you think of Old Testament God and angels. For example, when God went to chit-chat with Moses, Moses was freaking terrified. Like first things first (I'm da realest) a spontaneously burning bush starts talking to you, then if you look at it, the sight would blind you. Even that is terrifying. Angels aren't always sitting on clouds whilst playing the lyre, they sometimes suit up and go fight dragons and other battles (see milton).
