    Basically "the awakened" to us has been a concept we have been toying with for a while...

    Drummer Terry and Tony were previously involved in another band which fell apart by the summer of last year. However, The twoI enjoyed playing music together and through the end of 2003 developed an understanding between them of what they liked from their music. So, they decided that they would like to start another band drawing on the concepts from the previous band and "widening their horizons" with fresh ideas and new people purely for the fun

    The first port of call was with a front-man, not a singer. They wanted a Front-man. Anyone can sing with enough training and lessons but you can't teach the confidence, vibe and enthusiasm that is required of a front man

    Fortunately for them we found all of the above in a friend of a friend. Front-man "Mad" Davey. Not only was he full of the front man charm and charisma that they were looking for but his passion for music was far surpass anyone Tony and Terry had ever met. He also brought with him concepts and ideas that Tony and Terry had thought about in songs separately but never contemplated fusing together. So by Early January the band had taken a form of its own and they began jamming together.

    The awakened was born.

    It took them a little over 2 months to create a set that they were happy with by this time they had book their first gig and rehearsed as much as possible to make the best impression on the 8th of April '04 at the Fox and Firkin, Ladywell. And Impress they did, a String of gigs followed and by the beginning of May they decided to go back to the practice so they could reflect on their successes and failures live and to write new songs.

    Recently they also recruited Adam as guitarist as they felt the need to add an extra sound to the mix thus exploring the style avenue further. They knew Adam from School and that he was a great guitarist. He's also Dave's best friend so it seemed a logical solution for him to join in on the fun. Having two guitarist's, they can now pull off two styles (E.g Funk and Metal) at the same time better than before and the sound is just a richer and fuller sound.

    Now for the bass player, They recruited him through Terry who found him at work one day and they talked about each others band. Sean mentioned he could play bass and now so we asked him to come along...

    So whats next? we dont know...
