About Once Awake
Forging metal with influences from the early 2000s new wave of American metal as well as the Scandinavian melodic death metal scene, the Norwegians have made a mark for themselves in the underground scene.
Performing at the first ever Knotfest live streaming festival ‘Pulse Of The Maggots’ during the pandemic - alongside bands such as Orbit Culture and Vended to name a few - they got worldwide attention and recognition.
Third album “Bridgeburner” (2020) was a big step up in production and quality as the bands’ sound continues to evolve, putting high value on fusing the elements of melodic choruses mixed with teeth-crushing riffs and breakdowns.
By touring all over Europe playing 22 shows with Dagoba (FRA) and Infected Rain (MOL) in april 2022,
Once Awake have expanded their fanbase significantly - and audiences as well as critics praise their live performances.
The fourth album is self-titled and released 23. November 2022.
Followed by their first headliner tour in the UK in January 2023 called UK Awake Tour 2023.
