AZRAEL'S BANE, the Houston, Texas-based melodic power metal band featuring former DISTANT THUNDER drummer Rick Ward, have uploaded two full-length MP3s — "Shine" and "Innocence" — plus a video for the track "Shine" at their official web site.
"Shine" and "Innocence" come off the group's debut CD, "Wings of Innocence", which was recorded at Houston's Spyder Studios in October of 2003 with co-producer and engineer Gregg Gill (DISTANT THUNDER, SEVEN WITCHES).
AZRAEL'S BANE recently inked a two-album deal with Chavis Records. Chavis will reissue "Wings of Innocence", featuring the bonus track "Diary of a Madman", along with modified artwork. In addition the band will head into the studio later this year to record the follow-up to "Wings of Innocence". An online gallery with 90 pictures from AZRAEL'S BANE's recent trip to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico to perform at the 2005 Monterrey Metal Fest and pre-party can be found at this location.
