AltHard Rockers AWAKEN Release "BEHEMOTH" with The Label Group

 


ALTERNATIVE/HARD ROCK BAND AWAKEN have signed with The Label Group and are distributing via INgrooves; bringing to their fans both old and new with their single/video "Behemoth". Awaken brings their deeper-reaching lyrics to the higher level of connecting the listener to the meaning in melody, rhythm, beat, and words. As "Behemoth" shows their skills in a message melding with structure, it is undeniable that their fans reflect the same emotion and are ready for more of what Awaken has created and are ready for what is coming. Powerful rock music that fans relate and rock out to.

Check out the lyric video for "Behemoth" below:

 

"The song Behemoth came about because we wanted an introduction to the new record that would be gripping and attention-grabbing with its musical structure and lyrics. We wanted a heavier low-end and 'in your face' kind of vibe with raw thought provoking lyrics. The song sets the foundation for a lot of the theme of the new album dealing with inner monsters and overcoming certain struggles everyone must face." - Awaken

Produced By Awaken, Recorded/Mixed by Dustin Simpson, Mastered by Stephen Pettyjohn @ Ethereal Mastering


Awaken is an Alternative/Hard Rock band that brings an 'in your face' experience that will leave you wanting more. Bringing powerful melodies mixed with hard hitting guitar riffs and thought provoking lyrical material. Awaken is composed of Chad Griffin on Vocals, Dustin Simpson on Guitar, Chase “Sludge” Reagan on bass, and Jimi Wilkins on drums.


The band has shared the stage with national and international acts like 10 Years, RED, Pop Evil, Adelita's Way, In This Moment, Fuel, Fire Flight, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Art of Dying, and many more. The debut album, 'Broken Circle' (produced by Grammy Nominated Producer Travis Wyrick) dished out six radio singles; featuring “The Narrow Door” and “Silent Alibi” which hit the #2 spot on internet radio charts. The record also featured Trevor McNevan of Thousand Foot Krutch on the track “Fathom”. Since then, the band self-produced another full-length album, 'Echoes & Reflections' featuring tracks like “Bleed For You” and “In the Quiet” (featuring Zahna). In 2019, the band put out a follow-up record (their third album): 'Identity'. The first single, “Face of a Ghost” was the band’s first #1 charting single. The album also featured other stand out tracks like “Naive Voices”, “My Religion”, and “The Spiral” (featuring Jenna Kate Brown) which reached the #2 spot on internet radio charts. The band has now released the debut single, “Behemoth” for their upcoming record, “Monsters & Machines” that is now making waves internationally, taking the band to new heights and setting the stage for what has been said to be Awaken’s best work to date.

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
