Re-activated melodic hard rock band AZRAEL'S BANE are firing off the engines once again and have announced their reunion show to be held on October 17, 2015 at THE OFFICE live venue in their hometown of Houston, Texas.
Special guests will be local melodic hard rock partners in crime LOVE N WAR.
AZRAEL'S BANE vocalist Trey Gadler has checked in with the following update:
"We never really broke up. We just had a lot of things happen all at once that made going forward with the band difficult at that time. Our label went under. Our drummer moved out of state. A couple of us were going through divorces and a couple of us were having kids. It was just a ton of stuff, so we just tabled things for a while. Most of us dabbled in other projects during the break, but we've always stayed in touch. Those guys are all like brothers to me. Bane is family and we're back now. Everybody is back on the same page and we're ready to roll. Our rehearsals have been going well, and we've started writing again, so the future is bright for Azrael's Bane. It's gonna be a hell of a ride."
Azrael's Bane 2015 line-up:

Van Turner (Drums) - Formerly of Z-LOT-Z.
Combining the haunting melodies of Queensryche and Crimsom Glory with the more mainstream approach of Lillian Axe and Leatherwolf, Azrael's Bane issued their independently released debut album "Wings of Innocence" in 2004 which was widely acclaimed by specialized hard rock / metal media reviewers which included a perfect (5 out of 5) review score from legendary Los Angeles, California radio station website KNAC.COM.
The band saw Chavis Records do a re-release of the enhanced album in 2005 which featured a stunning cover of the Ozzy Osbourne classic song "Diary of a Madman".
Based on the strength of their debut album, Azrael's Bane was personally invited to play the 2005 MONTERREY METAL FEST II in Mexico in direct support of the main stage bands which included headliner Motorhead, Danzig, Mago de Oz, W.A.S.P., Hammerfall, Beyond Fear, Metal Church and Into Eternity.
In 2009, the band again independently released their 2nd album "Modern Day Babylon" to another wave of critical acclaim by the worldwide melodic rock music media.
The band is currently writing music for their 3rd album to be tentatively released in 2016.
