THE AWAKENING: Release New Video and Double Album


The Awakening has just released a new music video for the epic 4-part title track of their new double album, The Passage Remains. The video, “Passage (Part I – IV),” sets the stage for an album that returns to The Awakening’s Gothic Metal roots dramatically. “The essence of the song came to me in a dream, and I have taken that inspiration and woven it through the album. Dreams, our hopes, needs and desires, and personal journeys, in the face of adversity and other obstacles,” says The Awakening’s frontman, Ashton Nyte.

The physical album is packaged as a deluxe double CD (with double vinyl scheduled for next year). “The album was created to be enjoyed either as a whole, in two parts, or as two separate entities, each complete within themselves. It is a project I have wanted to create for many years, and I am delighted with the outcome,” says Ashton Nyte.
