Awoken began in 2003 playing heavy and fast hardcore. Working non-stop, with determination and a consistantly positive attitude, constant shows across the UK, a debut MCD on Let It Burn Records and 2 tours across Europe; including a 5 week - 30 show tour sharing the stage with Hoods, saw Awoken make their mark on European hardcore.
Throughout several line up changes and a real sense of growth, powerful, cleverly structured anthems laced with groove and a sense of brutality remained the foundation of Awoken's sound. A sound captured on the band's sole full length, 'Death Or Glory', a record that looked and sounded better than anything the band had done before.
Awoken reached a natural end at the beginning of 2007 and, after playing a sold-out farewell show in London, called it a day.
