"They play atmospheric progressive rock/metal in the best traditions of Tool and The Dream Theatre. Epic sound, vocals perfectly aligns with the emotional atmosphere of each composition, instrumental parts are very rich and expressive. All together it creates a challenging vision."
"The most surprising thing about this debut album is the band's ability to deliver a solid Post Metal experience that borders on the level that was experienced 15 years earlier on Tool's Ænima. That 1996 release pretty much created a firm assumption in the back of my mind that there was nothing more left to explore in this sub-genre. Experience is the key to realization of ones past mistakes and I've certainly learned another valuable lesson by listening to A((WAKE))!"
"Their full-length debut shows a band capable of softening passages and massive eruptions of groove, emotion and lots of other rockin' stuff, never letting go of one helluva intensely brooding atmosphere"
“This album is truely amazing. I can't stop listening to it ever since I got it. Moving melodies, touching vocals, killer bass line, superb riffs. I can't stop with the superlatives! This is an instant favourite for me. One of the best ones I've listened to for a while! Nothing short of a masterpiece.”
"Every track from start to finish is a journey you won't forget. They just keep impressing their fans time after time with release after release of nothing but brilliance and excellence."
"The technical progressive metal of A ((Wake)) draws a little from death metal, a little from Dream Theater, and a bit from the industrial genre without forgetting the melody, which is now even more prominent due to the presence of Ben Jackson.... A pleasing and welcome return to A ((Wake))"
“This is the best rock/metal album i've heard in a long time. Absolutely epic. At times they are as soft and spacey as pink floyd then they get as heavy as pantera. Don't get me wrong though, it's pretty hard to compare them to anything. Musicianship, vocals and production are superb!”
“What an amazing band...I always leave an A((WAKE)) show slightly stunned. The fact that they are all awesome human beings in a general sense....well, that just tops the cake. They deserve to be the high priority metal band of the now, they are just everyday people that happened to come across one another somewhere along the way and realized their commonness. Thank you, so much, for giving me this portal into this particular aspect of the human spirit!”
