REAPER ENTERTAINMENT EUROPE proudly announces the signing of the Norwegian Modern-Death-Metal-Newcomers ONCE AWAKE.
Norway, well-known for it’s beautiful landscapes, fjords, and an active Extreme Metal scene. But modern Death Metal? Nothing you would think about directly. But Hans Petter Solen and Ørjan Paulsen have found another source of inspiration in the beautiful city of Bergen than many of their fellow country-men. Passion, talent and a love for groovy Metal from all over the world are gathered in a powerful mixture by ONCE AWAKE, which are completed by Andrè Kongestøl Solberg (Guitar), Pål Martin Antonsen (Bass) and Frode Hennø (Vocals). Fans of bands like Illdisposed, Lamb Of God and Tesseract will feel home in the world of ONCE AWAKE quickly. Forceful Metalcore bumps into edgy riffs, catching melodies and an affinity for Djent. On top of that,ONCE AWAKE already proved that they have a distinctive individual signature that brings a certain freshness to their sound despite all the influences on their debut album „Erver So Cold“ (2017).
Now, the band signed a worldwide record deal with REAPER ENTERTAINMENT EUROPE and are going to release their second studio album in spring 2019.
The band states:
“We are proud to announce that we have signed a record deal with Reaper Entertainment Europe!! After self-releasing our debut-album “Ever So Cold” in 2017 we are now ready to take our music to a new level, and our second album is ready for release very soon! New videos are coming also, can’t wait to share it all with you 🙂 More news soon…”
The new album release is set for spring 2019.
More info coming soon – stay tuned!
