The legendary metal band Fates Warning began in the early 1980's playing a traditional style of heavy metal. However, they quickly began to adopt a more technically proficient style influenced by Rush and are considered by many to be the first true prog-metal band.
While the band has subsequently moved in more melodic and ambient directions, they have remained a vibrant and well-respected cornerstone for the prog camp within the heavy metal strata.
AWAKEN was formed in 2009 by vocalist Glenn DaGrossa founding member and chief songwriter , Awaken was signed to Mausoleum Records in June 2012 and released their self titled CD world wide in November of the same year. Awaken is a Power Metal band that Kerrang! magazine hailed as “one of the quintessential metal bands of our time.” With DaGrossa's soaring vocals and stellar song craftsmanship, the blazing Guitar duo of Joe Todaro and Scott Bennett, and the powerful rhythm section of new members Bassist Greg Belmonte and Drummer Mike Marrone,
considerable national and international touring and recording experience under their collective belts, AWAKEN is primed for the world stage, ready to lead and redefining the lines of Power / Prog Metal.
