Feeling a bit camera shy


Kinma Awakening takes a ton of different influences and mixes them all together. Both of the guitarists are very Iron Maiden influenced, but then Andy is also influenced by proggresive rock bands and modern hardcore (only a little), and Shane is influenced by death metal, black metal, and power metal. Both also experiment in laid back and jazzy sounding guitar riffs. Jay on drums is a giant Neil Peart fan, but can enjoy any beat, no matter how simple. The bassist (Brian)might actually BE Steve Harris in disguise, because he plays just like him, laying down that classic galloping rythm and laying in a lead here and there. The keyboardist (Alex Knutrud) is a musical prodigy who picked up piano just after joining the band, which he was able to do because of having perfect pitch. He brings both a classical side to the music and a jazz side, as well as being interested in more experimental sides to metal, such as electronica and adding effects. The singer, Gregory, tries to do as many different things with his voice as possible, and cites every single singer every known to the human race as an influence, but his major three influences are James Lebrie (Dream Theater), Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) and Claudio Sanchez (Coheed and Cambria). He also brings a story to the music through his lyrics, a story he has been toiling on for most of his life. All of these bring together a unique sound for Kinma Awakening, which while harkening back to generations of music past, also loudly screams that its time for now, and the future.
