Awaken Solace is an Australian, female fronted symphonic metal band that combines a theatrical mix of orchestral power metal, medieval baroque and fantasy-style soundtracks. Full orchestral and choral arrangements compliment the band’s five piece line-up of vocals, bass, guitar, drums and keyboards; a concept that places them among a unique few in the Australian metal scene.

Since releasing their debut album ‘In Nightfall’s Embrace’ on 1 June 2012 (a release mixed and mastered by Caio Duarte, Broadband Productions, Brazil), Awaken Solace has received an extensive amount of international attention on the femme metal scene with reviews circulating from as far as the United Kingdom, United States, Japan, Brazil, Czech Republic and the Netherlands to name a few. The album has also received regular air play on digital radio in the UK, local community radio 4zzz and also featured on Triple J’s heavy music program ‘The Racket’.

The band hit the live stage in February 2012. By August, Awaken Solace was announced as the Brisbane support act for one of Europe’s most successful metal acts ‘Apocalyptica’, on their first ever Australian tour.

December saw the release of Awaken Solace’s first music video ‘The Passing’, a steampunk inspired professional production lead by Director Jake Brown & Producer Julian Pennisi of Blackline Media and award winning Cinematographer Dr. Dominic Muench of Blacksun Productions.

2013 has begun positively for Awaken Solace with a nomination in the MS (Metal Symphonique) Awards in the category of ‘Best Newcomer of the Year’. Throughout the year the band plans to write and record the next album and to tour further afield. 'In Nightfall's Embrace' is only the beginning of things to come.

The time of awakening is now...
