Raising Abel

We are based out of Arlington, Tx. 4 piece Rock Metal with strong vocals 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.

In 2009  in an online battle of the bands called "Rock The DASH"  RA won 6th place out of 2060 bands nationwide. The band is currently added some news songs, and polishing their sound and look.

In a X Factor style Talent Show in Shreveport 2015 RA took 2nd place in band performance and Pat Bratcher (Lead Vocalist) won (Top Vocalist Award)
