Awaken is the result of a collaboration between James Allin of Ikarian/Visionaire and Ian Arkley of My Silent Wake and The Other Window (ex member of Seventh Angel/Ashen Mortality/Paramaecium). The debut 'Awaken' was recorded 2005 in Monroe near Seattle at James' home studio, and is now due for a spring 2006 release. The album was written by Ian in the UK and James in the USA with demos going back and forth between the 2 members of the band. The bulk of 'Awaken' took just over a week to record and all the engineering was done by James who perfected the sound of the recording over the following months. The album was then mastered in the UK by Jeff Mortimer at Ideal mastering. Guest female vocals on Awaken were provided by Kate Hamilton of My Silent Wake. The album has over 70 mins of music and 11 songs.
