New Zealand-based extreme metallers DAWN OF AZAZEL have scheduled the following dates:

Oct. 05 - Logan Campbell Center, Auckland, NZ (w/ SLAYER, MEGADETH)
Oct. 30 - Transmission Room, Auckland, NZ (w/ SUFFOCATION, WINDS OF PLAGUE)
Jan. 20 - The Studio, Auckland, NZ (w/ CHIMAIRA)

Commented the band: "Needless to say, it's an honor to play with two of the greatest names in metal that were largely responsible for us all picking up our instruments, as well as two major influences in SUFFOCATION and CHIMAIRA."

DAWN OF AZAZEL third album, "Relentless", is scheduled for release on October 13, with distribution through both Unique Leader and Prosthetic Records channels.

Two songs from the forthcoming CD — "I Relentless" and "The Flames of Failure" — are available for streaming on the band's MySpace page.

DAWN OF AZAZEL's last album, "Sedition", was re-released in September 2006 with a video bonus track and distributed through RED/Megaforce Records/MIC via Ibex Moon Records.

DAWN OF AZAZEL created a stir in 2005 after a New Zealand newspaper published an exposé on 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).
