The third full-length album from Christian metalcore band blessthefall, the second release with Beau Bokan and the first with guitarist Elliott Gruenberg, who came on board after the departure of Mike Frisby, Awakening was produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette, who also produced the band's previous album, Witness. Not much has changed, with plenty of screams, drop-tuned guitars, and double bass drums pushing things along, so fans will not be disappointed in this one.

This is the 1st album I have owned by Blessthefall. I first became familiar with Blessthefall at a concert in May of 2010, when they were touring with As I Lay Dying, Demon Hunter, and War of Ages. Great show! I liked what I heard from the band, but didn't really start getting into them until later. I had come across them again online and remembered having seen them at that show, so I checked out a few of their songs and decided I rather liked them. I still hadn't gotten an album by them until just after the release of this album...I had meant to, but it just hadn't happened. After hearing a few songs of the album and loving them, I picked it up. Stellar CD, I very much enjoy it! I have a friend in Colorado who is actually friends with these guys too, and he had put a good word in about them, knowing my love for hardcore music & such. If you're into hardcore/post-hardcore stuff, I feel you would love these guys! Definitely check em out!
