DAWN OF AZAZEL's second studio effort, "Sedition", was released in March via Ibex Moon Records. The CD contains nine tracks of the band's "most brutal and vicious material to date," according to a press release.

DAWN OF AZAZEL created a stir late last year after a New Zealand newspaper published an exposé on frontman Rigel Walshe's occupation as a police officer and the band's lyrical content (check previous BLABBERMOUTH.NET stories: Story#1, Story#2, Story#3).
