Awoken By Death / Press

“I can see them opening for Cannibal Corpse easily.. And watch out world because when they do, it’s going to knock you straight off your puny axis and launch you into another universe..”

MQ - The Metal Review

“there’s a real sense that this is designed to get live crowds ripping apart venues.”

Dave - Loud-Stuff.com

“'A Wretched Disgust' is a strong document of what Awoken by Death have to offer.. with some interesting twists that will make them stand out from the crowd.”

The Duke - Roadhouse Reviews

“I for one am looking forward to the day that these guys cross the shores and invade the North American lands.”

Ian - Metal Master Kingdom

“An all out assault on your ear drums from the moment it begins until the moment it comes to a close.”

Dave - Loud-Stuff.com

“I would certainly keep my eye on these guys in the time to come, so metal heads worldwide take note!”

Ian - Metal Master Kingdom

“To some it will be an acquired taste.. but to others it’s like birds on the wind.. It’s just non-stop energy from beginning to end..”

MQ - The Metal Review

“Awoken by Death offer an interesting blend. The drums and vocals are very extreme, but the riffs often aren't. This actually is a good thing, as it makes all of the different parts of the band stand apart rather than mixing into a cacophonic mess!”

The Duke - Roadhouse Reviews

“Aggressive doesn’t come close to explaining the sound they’ve managed to unleash here.”

Dave - Loud-Stuff.com

“I was pleasantly surprised when I checked out these guys. The riffs are there, the vocals kick ass and aren't dry and monotone.... this dynamic duo promises great potential, I'm not the easiest metal fan to satisfy and I feel a lot of up and coming bands are too generic.. This is not the case with Awoken By Death.”

Ian - Metal Master Kingdom

“To say this is a brutal assault on the ears is misleading: Your ears will never forget it.. Once you listen, it’s embedded..”

MQ - The Metal Review

“They have gone through a lot of line up changes and a lot of horseshit, but haven't given up. This kind of determination in an unsigned band is often spoken of but seldom displayed in practice. But they appear to have the right mindset to really rise to the challenge.”

The Duke - Roadhouse Reviews

“Awoken By Death are one of those bands that should come with a health warning – beware of what you are about to hear! The music is full on, insanely heavy and has metal written all over it. The guitars are crunchy, the drums insanely fast, the mix bass heavy and the vocals guttural. If you like bands like Cannibal Corpse or Berzerker (both of whom I own albums by) then this is for you, if you like Green Day, then this just might kill you. ”

Dave - Loud-Stuff.com

“Tracks like 'Walls of Treachery' instantly told me one thing, these guys do not want to sound like everybody else.”

Ian - Metal Master Kingdom

“Now I don’t scare easy, it takes a lot to frighten me.. And the very last time I was frightened to listen to an album at night for fear of what images my over-active demonic-horror-movie-infused imaginative brain might conjure up was King Diamond’s “Them” but Awoken By Death has now proudly taken that spot.. All of the tracks are extremely haunting and yet desecrating at the same time..”

MQ - The Metal Review

“It shows good initiative for a band to approach a foreign review site, that would get them noticed on a more global scale.”

The Duke - Roadhouse Reviews

“The music is hard hitting from start to finish and this track "Ruins of Defiled Shrine' is no exception, closing the album with an almighty kick in the teeth and making sure you’re not going to forget what you’ve heard in a hurry! ”
