September 21, 2020, 8 months ago
Finnish Wacken Metal Battle 2018 winners, Awake Again, have released a new single, “Into Two”. It's the first of a four-single-series, and is the beginning of a new chapter in Awake Again’s career.
“'Into Two' is an explosive wave of heavy drums, big guitars and eclectic synths with beautiful and harsh vocals. The end result is a perfect marriage of relentless metal and catchy pop music,” says the band.
The song was co-written by Danish producer Christopher Stjerne. Lead vocals were recorded at Christopher’s studio in Copenhagen and the rest of the song was recorded in Turku. "Into Two" was mixed by Grammy nominated producer and mixing engineer Jacob Hansen. The song sounds huge and epic but at the same time intricate and precise.
“The song is about personal development. It’s when you transform from old to new, from negative to positive. You leave the old and corrupt behind and you are left with a new and more complete self. This is also the process of the band since the last release almost two years ago.”
