Every so often a new voice enters, breathing new life into the scene and raising the bar. Xehanort is one such voice, a one-man machine who at once defines the term maverick and defies generic conventions. A unique blend of progressive, technical, black metal and deathcore, Xehanort and his album Awaken in a Different Dimension is at once brutal and confounding, the next level in the world of progressive death metal.
Entirely self-produced, recorded, performed and mixed by the man himself, Awaken in a Different Dimension is a video game-inspired concept album detailing the trials and tribulations of a character lost in a foreign land. Remixed and remastered for physical release through Subliminal Groove, the CD release comes with plenty of goodies for like-minded producers and engineers, including instrument stems, raw mixing files, and a ‘making-of’ behind the scenes video.
