    My Final Verdict
Once Awake is a groove laden kind of punch, thriving for songs too be interesting.
Once Awake was founded by Hans Petter Solen and Ørjan Paulsen in 2011. Playing together i various bands throughout their youth,
the two close friends wanted to form a band with talented, professional and like-minded musicians. With strong friendship and inspiration
from the beautiful city of Bergen, the band worked hard at writing strong songs, building a sound inspirated by American,
English and Scandinavian metal. With Andrè Kongestøl Solberg (guitar) joining the band in late 2011, a perfect match of dual guitars was at
place. Writing and practicing in an old abandoned house by the sea made some atmospheric and progressive music.
With Frode Hennø (vocals) joining late 2016 the band found a singer with the right attitude, ambition and talent
that is very hard to find. Last piece of brick to fulfill an ambitius band was a young and talented bass player, Pål Martin Antonsen.
"Ever So Cold" debut album was a three year writing process, starting march 2014 and completed march 2017. Released 03.03.2017
Then the band toured 10 days in Russia and playing 1 concert in the hometown with Fleshmeadow and Vinterbris.
In 2018 the band have been working hard with a new sound and stronger songs all represented in forthcoming album “Inside The Storm”.
First single "Live life on" released October 2018. The whole album will be out April 5th 2019 via Reaper Entertainment Europe.
