Canadian thrash metalers, Disciples Of Power have decided to reform after breaking up 15 years ago (in 2002.) Unfortunately it will be without the help of Hart Bachmier or Andy Smith. The band released a statement on October 13 via their website:
Disciples of Power have officially reformed. Unfortunately, Hart Bachmier will not be joining us. We respect his decision and reasoning and continue on with his blessing. Hart will always be our metal brother and good friend. We wish him the best. In Dust we Trust bassist Andy Smith will also not be joining us, Cheers brother.
2013 will see the return of Canadian metal legends Disciples of Power. The band split up in 2002 after a 15 year history that had seen the band release 5 full length albums and perform numerous shows form 1988 to 2002. We respect the music, history and what it means to many of our fans. We are dedicated to bringing you the power, energy, dynamics and mind warp that is synonymous with Disciples of Power.
The new line-up consists of alumni members…
Wes Sontag: guitar, and Dean Relf: drums,
and new members…
Shane Hawco: vocals (who was a part of Section VIII with Wes and Dean and sang numerous shows for DOP back in 1995 – 97 before going on to joinThorazine, Exit Strategy and WAKE)
and Ben Harbak: guitar (currently from The Noumenon and formerly ofAcantha and Begrime Exemious – he has been a huge DOP fan for may years and the music has helped shape him into the guitarist he is today),
We are currently auditioning like minded individuals to fill the bass position.
We dedicate future shows to our fans, the music, and everyone who believed in this band from day one. We will see you all in 2013!!!
Wes and Dean.
