Awaken I Am – Shields and Crowns

Awaken I Am hit their album Shields and Crowns with double kicks, thrashing and near piercing vocals for the most part.

This band plays a bit hardcore with a little bit of a soft side. Theirs is a technical genre driven by power and speed but it is made more powerful when the layers drop away for a few moments and the vocals take the top place.

Listen hard to the changes which can get lost in the mix. Revel in the energy of Shields and Crowns and appreciate the calm. (SP)
