November 11, 2012, 3 years ago
Long defunct '80s Medicine Hat, Alberta-based speed thrashers DISCIPLES OF POWER recently reformed. They issued the following statement:"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."
The band has since checked in with the following update:"We are proud to announce that original Disciples of Power bassist Chris Chapman featured on the classic album Power Trap has joined us to finalize the reformed line-up! We are excited out about his return to the fold! Rehearsals have been fierce and we look forward to bringing the power and the energy live to you all in early 2013. We'll see you next year!"
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. The new line-up consists of alumni members - Wes Sontag (guitar), Dean Relf (drums), Chris Chapman (bass) - and new members: Shane Hawco (vocals) and
Ben Harbak (guitar)"We dedicate future shows to our fans, the music, and everyone who believed in this band from day one. We understand that some individuals have taken liberties with the music and in some cases speaking on behalf of the band. They do not have any permission to represent Disciples of Power in any way shape or form. We are in the process of rectifying those issues, now you can obtain all official news, merchandise, and music form this site. More will be added to this official site in the future."
