About the Artist
A Wanted Awakening is a metal five piece based out of Lowell, Massachusetts. Piecing together influences from death metal acts like The Black Dahlia Murder and Through The Eyes of The Dead, as well as progressive acts like Between The Buried And Me and Protest The Hero, A Wanted Awakening has really formed a sound that stands on it’s own. While maintaining the fast, heavy sound that drives the currently thriving deathcore scene, A Wanted Awakening also creates soaring soundscapes and unique instrumental sections, transcending the limits of metal.A Wanted Awakening has played countless shows in Massachusetts and New York, most notably appearing on the main stage at New England Metal And Hardcore Festival in 2011.
Their devotion towards practice and showmanship gives audiences a live experience that is rivaled by very few bands. Catharsis is the culmination of 5 years of long nights, long drives, and hard work. This music is the highest caliber that A Wanted Awakening has ever produced, and they can’t wait to unleash it on the world.
