Rick's Pick: Painful Awakening

This weeks pick is Painful Awakening and their CD "The Reality Hurts." Staying in tune with last week`s pick, Painful Awakening have more of an overall metal sound, but it is more a thrashing metal with hardcore influences. The band makes use of two vocalists, one of which being the more traditional RAC/ hardcore type, while the other is the borderline black metal voice seen in bands like Children of Bodom and In Flames. A solid album from start to finish.

Also to make mention, their first two songs released were on the Hardcore Until The End Compilation including the song "Fuck Your Society" which is one of my more favorite songs from the band.

Rick's Pick is brought to you weekly by Label 56. Rick contributes these small write-ups to share with everyone. While you may not share the same tastes or agree with his weekly choices Rick does a great job of carrying some of the most diverse selections of music here in the states. Rick's "Picks" are usually available for purchase as well as any number of other hard to find or brand new releases at Label 56; visit HERE.
So everyone at Uprise Direct would like to thank Rick for his contribution to our ever growing site!
