Waking Theo

Bursting out of Yorkshire come this hard working quintet. Mixing heavy guitar work, with pounding rhythms producing a heavy, yet melodic sound.

Come February this year they are releasing their new 3 track EP “Reborn”. Their dedication and committment has led them to being being handpicked for Bloodstock this year, and shines through on this EP.

The three tracks hit you with a power and force, yet also possess a quality not always found in some of the heavier metal acts. Opening, powerfully, with “To The Lions” the guitar licks drive the track forward whilst bolstered by the precision drumming, all overlaid with Craigs solid vocals. The barrage on the senses heightens with “Downcast”, which although maintains and the energy is the weakest on the EP, but not through lack of ability from the band, it just doesn’t shine through like the other two tracks. Despite this, it is no doubt a firm favourite with a live crowd.

Closing the EP with the title track, “Reborn”, which re-inforces the EP. With even more power and energy flowing out of the speakers. The fast paced guitars and drums get the blood pumping, and leave the listener on a high.

They have an album planned for Spring next year, with the EP available from February 11th. Just in time for Valentines day!
