Awakened / Bio

Complex, Diverse, and Polished.

These are three words that describe the sound that is AWAKENED. Their strange hybrid of sound that's hard to classify under any one genre,
can have its audience thrashing in a pit one minute, and swaying and singing along the next.

A collection of musicians that all bring their own influences and opinions to every song is what makes them stand out from the various bands around the Des Moines Metro area. But enough about the sound. The sound is something that can speak for itself... You'll either like it or you won't.

One of the best things about this band is it's chemistry. With five musicians who not only put on one hell of a show when they play together, but also get along -- which is something that's even harder to come by. Watching them play, it's obvious they enjoy doing what they do, and are constantly talking about how to make their music better, and how to take it to the next level. That is something that keeps this band fresh and interesting. They collaborate on everything, and each song is not the product of one or two members, but the entire group.

Now it's time to ask yourself... are you Awakened?
