With bands like Slayer and Metallica building their armies in the underground,
and over throwing bands like Ratt and Cinderella, who put more hairspray and make-up
into their music than riff. Glam metal was the enemy, and thrash was it's nemesis.
Now, with metal bands today singing about breaking up with their girlfriends, de-tuning their guitars to make their music sound heavier than it is, screaming through the verse but melodically whining through the chorus, replacing solo's with breakdown's, and so called "Thrash" bands claiming their seat beside Metallica because one song on the record contains one thrash riff, there is a new enemy.
It's time again for a new awakening, a Great Awakening. It's time for a new Slayer, a new Metallica, and a new Megadeth to come forward and form a new army. We call ourselves Great Awakening because we are the Great Awakening. Replacing low and slow, with speed and aggression. We're going to play louder and we're going to play faster. We're on a mission to make heavy metal what it used to be and everyone is invited, are you a part of the Great Awakening?
