Album Review

When metal historians look back on the 2000s, they will no doubt remember the first decade of the 21st century as a time in which Europe dominated death metal, black metal, and gothic metal while the United States dominated metalcore. That said, it isn't as though U.S. metal bands and European metal bands are oblivious to one another in the 21st century: American metalheads are often influenced by European metalheads, and vice-versa. On Awaken the Dreamers, Oakland, CA's All Shall Perish maintain a sound that is essentially American but has a definite fondness for European metal. The material on this 2008 release is technical metalcore with elements of technical death metal — specifically, the technical death metal coming out of Scandinavia. All Shall Perish sound like an American band, which they are; technical metalcore is the primary ingredient, but Nordic death metal is a prominent influence. Although Awaken the Dreamers has its melodic moments, melody and nuance are really afterthoughts on this 35-minute CD. Ultimately, Awaken the Dreamers is about brute force; nasty, harsh, dense, and unapologetically vicious, All Shall Perish go for the jugular more often than not. Awaken the Dreamers isn't a bad album; the material isn't remarkable, but it is generally worthwhile. Countless other U.S. bands have been mining the "technical American metalcore meets technical European death metal" waters, and while All Shall Perish aren't the absolute best of the lot, Awaken the Dreamers is at least a decent and noteworthy effort from these brutal Northern Californians.

ASP keep it brutal and ahead of every other band trying to do the same

Saw these guys in London @ Camden Underworld and they were bleeping awesome and now the new album has finally come out I am not in the least disappointed! The Price Of Existence has been my favourite album for the past 2 years because it offered something much heavier and more technically proficient than a lot bands out there. Everything that made that album great and more is on this new album: guttural pig squeels; mental sweep-picking; furious riffs and intense drumming that drills through your head and every song with originality; only ASP have done it bigger and better on Awaken The Dreamers. There are suprise moments in every song that make you squeel along with uncontained excitement and you'll find yourself handbanging to the behemoth beatdowns til your neck breaks. SO TAKE MY ADVICE & GET THIS FRIGGING ALBUM!!!


not many bands can pull off an album like this i say this is the heaviest album i have

great but different

this album was great compared to their last, but just so everyone knows their is some harmonies in this album, mostly noticed on the awaken the dreamers track, still very good metal album just not as heavy as their last, also take note their are some amazing riffs and some extreme solos which im sure will not disapoint people used to iron maiden, weird i know, but i hear it in there.

Technical death metal band All Shall Perish hails from Oakland, California, but their eponymous three-track demo had to make its way across the Pacific Ocean and be embraced by Japan's Amputated Vein Records to make possible their first album, Hate, Malice, Revenge, released in 2003. Founded a year earlier, the group then parlayed a tireless touring schedule into a worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast (which re-released their debut in 2005), and comprises...
