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 in 2005. 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 CD 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, the band released their 2nd album "Modern Day Babylon" 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 Zlot 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.
