"Awake Again is an alternative metal band hailing from Turku, Finland. The band was founded by vocalist/bassist Matti Österman and guitarist Kasper Hellström after they left their former band.

They wanted to have a more musically diverse band with members that have higher ambitions in music.For the drums they found their friend, Markus Puranen. As a trio the band played around 10 shows around Turku and Helsinki area.
In 2015 the band joined Turku Rock Academy band coaching program. At the same time they started to look for a separate bass player to get the vocals, bass playing and live performance to the next level.
They found bassist Ville Loukola from rehearsal room next to theirs to fill in the missing spot. With Turku Rock Academy the band released their first single Turning Point in 2016 and second single Drop The Bomb in 2017.
To this day the band has played almost 100 shows around Finland including Ruisrock in 2016 and as a support act for Smash Into Pieces in their Finnish tour in 2017. In the summer of 2018 they won the Wacken Metal Battle Finland
in Nummirock and now they are going to travel to Wacken Open Air to represent Finland in the international final." more
