German Metalcore quintet CRY MY NAME have released the official video for "Awakening," a track from forthcoming album Reflections.
CRY MY NAME will release new album Reflections April 21 on Bastardized Recordings. And the group sounds fresher and more dynamic than ever! On Reflections, the band's traditional style is bolstered by a fat production, angry riffs, roller-grooves and hard chorus hooks.
CRY MY NAME fuels its sound with aggressive hardcore beats without anchoring themselves to the past. Most importantly, the Kiel boys demonstrate a unique flair for writing great songs! Reflections was recorded at Blastbeat Productions and mastered a Pitchback Studios. The band recently released the official video for "Recover," which can be viewed at this location . .
