Arkansas' backwoods doomsayers Rwake awaken from their slumber and unleash their long-awaited new album Rest. Their first new material in over 4 years, Rest is less a set of songs than a perpetually evolving, deeply emotional set of missives heralding the end of times. Rest is nothing short of epic, and not only one of 2011's finest albums but one of the finest dge metal records ever. Artist Site Released: September 27, 2011 ON Relapse. Tags: Hard Rock Metal.

Album · 2011 · 6 Songs. See All. Voices of Omens. Hell Is A Door To The Sun (Reissue). If You Walk Before You Crawl You Crawl Before You Die.

Rest features six tracks in total, divided into two short interludes and four songs with a mere epic 9 to 16 minute length. The style reminds me a bit of a somewhat cleaner version of Cough or Cull, so what you can expect is slow to mid-paced Doom, spiced up with some harsh Sludge Metal and haunting melodic moments. If you’re looking for some fresh and versatile Doom/Sludge Metal these days, you should give RWAKE a listen, but it may take a few spins before you will fully comprehend the album.

Rwake - Rest Album Lyrics. 1. Souls Of The Sky Lyrics.

As with most everything on Rest, Rwake makes this relatively placid introduction- nearly as much a heavy metal trope as the apocalypse and goblins- a bit weirder and wilder than expected. As the drone swells, female vocals intertwine with the guitars, casting a spell that seems to summon the band's scorn. If that sounds like high praise, it is: Rest is the best album of Rwake's 14-year career, further proof that doom does exist beyond Neurosis. Although Rwake have been making music for more than a decade, Rest comes turbocharged by an obsession with ideas and influences different from those you might generally expect from a younger band.

Talk about Rwake - Rest


Thofyn
Melancholic, yet playful melodies herald another very interesting Sludge Metal release by Relapse Records, hitting the shelves this autumn. Little Rock, Arkansas, based RWAKE (pronounced Wake, according to vocalist C.T.) manage to come up with an almost progressive sounding album; in terms of Sludge Metal progressiveness, that is… Rest features six tracks in total, divided into two short interludes and four songs with a mere epic 9 to 16 minute length. The style reminds me a bit of a somewhat cleaner version of Cough or Cull, so what you can expect is slow to mid-paced Doom, spiced up with some harsh Sludge Metal and haunting melodic moments. The songwriting is once again excellent, but the production is a mixed blessing IMHO. It really lets the melodic parts shine and adds a lot of depth to the cleaner guitar sections, but at the same time it takes away most of the dirt and vigor that is so typical for bands that were signed to Berserker or Shifty Records at one time or another. It is hard to pick one of the four lengthy songs, but “The Culling” would be my favorite, blending the enigmatic beauty and bleak grimness almost perfectly. If you’re looking for some fresh and versatile Doom/Sludge Metal these days, you should give RWAKE a listen, but it may take a few spins before you will fully comprehend the album. Some useful nerd-knowlegde for your next drinking session: C.T. is also involved with King Travolta, King Killer and Son Of Jor-El (who have a cool 7″-split out with Hellhawk on Corley Records…).
