Raising Abel

We are based out of Arlington, Tx. 3 piece Rock Metal with very strong 3 part harmonies and melodic hooks.

Hoping for a big break RA continues to strive to write songs that have a point of contact with the audience.

RA has been compared to Metal and Pop put in a blender at 70,000 rpm. Sorta like Metallica and Genesis having a head on a car collision. With a strong stage performance RA can hold an all age audience.
