Being a die hard Skillet fan, I could not wait to hear this exclusive 4 track EP called "Awake and Remixed -EP". So I pre-ordered and waited with baited breath for the hour it would show up in my iTunes. That day came last night and the songs could not load up fast enough for my excitement! 14 hours later, I have listened until I could practically sing the songs myself. "Awake and Remixed" is the perfect balance between techno and the Hard Rock Panheads dearly love. "Awake and Alive (The Quickening)", the first track of the EP has the ability to rebirth the song into something fresh and new. It also includes new vocals bits from Jen Ledger not heard on the original version of the song. "Hero (The Leigon of Doom Remix)", composed by John and Korey Cooper, raises the bar on this increasingly popular hit. "Don't Wake Me (Pull Remix)", throws a curve to the melody of the powerful song "don't Wake Me". With new guitar mixes incorperated into the melody, it changes the whole feel of the song into something panheads everywhere will love. Finally, "Monster (Unleash the Beast), sheds a new light on the Billboard topping favorite. Parts of the mix appeared at the beginning of recent Skillet podcasts, leaving panheads begging for a way to enjoy the ear candy of this remix. Composed by John Cooper and Gavin Brown, the remix includes new vocals bits from Jen Ledger and Korey Cooper. In summary of the album, my only regret is that it only includes 4 tracks. Nonetheless, I am a satified panhead and eagerly wait to see what is next to come from the band Skillet.
My apologies to any information that is found to be incorrect.
