Azraels Bane - promo group live collage - 2015 - #33033MOABMMNSS

HighVolMusic is pleased to announce that Houston, Texas Rock band Azrael’s Bane is reactivated and has signed a 3 album deal with the label. 2016 will see the official release of the bands sophomore effort ‘Modern Day Babylon’ complete with bonus material. Also in the works is the highly sought after debut ‘Wings of Innocence’.

Power Metal, Prog, Melodic Metal, Hard Rock, – descriptions touching on multiple genres of heavy music today, none seem to do justice to the music that is Azrael’s Bane. Based in Houston, Texas, Azrael’s Bane was formed in the summer of 2002. Its members, all seasoned veterans of the heavy rock and metal scene sought to create music that was new, powerful, and different from the norm. They have since developed a strong following through touring and sharing the stage with international acts such as Motorhead, Hammerfall, WASP, Danzig, Ripper Owens, George Lynch (Dokken), Metal Church, Nevermore, Jag Panzer, Quiet Riot, LA Guns, Into Eternity, Lillian Axe, F5 and Neal Turbin among others including a slot on one of the world’s largest Latin American festivals, the Monterrey Metal Fest in Monterrey Mexico.

The band has appeared in multiple US music festivals including Rocklahoma, ProgPower West in Los Angeles and Milwaukee Metal Fest. The band signed a 2 album deal with Chavis Records in the summer of 2005 releasing the highly acclaimed debut CD ‘Wings of Innocence’. The CD received high marks from the press which included a perfect (5 out of 5) review score from legendary Los Angeles, California radio station website KNAC.COM  as well as brisk sales worldwide.

In 2009, their 2nd album ‘Modern Day Babylon’ was released to another wave of critical acclaim by the worldwide melodic rock music media. The band took a much-needed break in 2010. They returned in January of 2015 with new drummer Van Eric Turner (formerly of Z Lot Z ) to begin work on a third album. With soaring clean vocals, shred oriented musicianship, five-part vocal harmonies, and an emphasis on memorable, hook-laden songwriting, Azrael’s Bane are poised to again make their mark on today’s metal music landscape.

Vocalist Trey Gadler checks in with the following update: “The band and I are all very excited to announce our signing with HighVolMusic! HVM are great people who share our vision and game plan making them the perfect partner for us in getting our music out to the world. Stay tuned because this is going to be awesome!”

HighVolMusic label boss Bill Chavis states: “We are super stoked to announce that Azrael’s Bane has signed with HighVolMusic! An amazing band, Azrael’s Bane is comprised of top-notch musicians with their own signature sound loaded with crushing rhythms, blazing guitars, 5-part vocal harmonies and the man up front Trey Gadler. Welcome home boys…”

The band is currently writing music for their third album, to be released in 2017.
