The record is guaranteed to catch you attention on the first try, as you ferociously headband this band will invade your brain. This band is not an amateur as they have released some work before, this is what Mark Kennedy has to share:
“We are very privileged to team up with Sensory Records, for the release of, A World Awakens. This being our second release promises a more refined and mature sound, this beginning a new exciting chapter for DAMNATIONS DAY.”
DAMNATIONS DAY was founded by brothers Mark Dean Kennedy, who have been playing music together since 2005, the siblings accompanied by Jon King who joined in 2012. The band released their debut album, Invisible, The Dead, through Nightmare Records in 2013 to amazing reviews. Since the record’s release, the band has been working hard, supporting such bands as Nightwish, Sybreed, Psycroptic, Black Majesty, Widow, Teramaze, Pegazus, Vanishing Point, King Parrot, Soilwork, Battle Beast, Salamandra, Circle II Circle, and Helloween, as well as headlining shows and appearing in Australian Metal festivals such as Steel Assassins NSW and Stormrider Festival WA. In September of 2014 they joined Accept on the European leg of their Blind Rage Tour. This amazing opportunity allowed DAMNATIONS DAY to expose themselves to nearly thirty sold-out shows in front of an average of two-thousand people a night, playing in legendary venues across Europe.
DAMNATIONS DAY learned a lot from their live shows and tours, and continually grow more determined to greater define their sound. Although showing versatility over different styles, playing on the bigger stage has refined the direction of their music combining the maturity and knowledge gained through the experiences of touring and time. Remaining determined as ever to bring mature, professional, and honest music that is not directly covered by just one genre as well as bringing an energetic and powerful atmosphere to their live performance, the band spent 2015 writing, and then spent all of 2016 recording, what has now become the second DAMNATIONS DAY album, A World Awakens.
