    Band Bio:

    Relentless and uncompromising yet soaring and intricate, Waking Theo weld the brutal to the beautiful to create music that is both stunning and epic. Drawing influence from a vast cross-section of metal, from classic thrash, through to modern-day melodic death and metalcore, Waking Theo carve out a distinct sound which displays a fine balance between extremity and accessibility.

    Since forming in 2006, the Yorkshire based quintet have honed their precise and energetic performance style with devastating effect, resulting in a hard hitting live show few underground bands can match. This has led to their selection for support slots with names such as While She Sleeps, Bleed from Within, Malefice, Trigger the Bloodshed, and many more. Not to mention their recent selection for Bloodstock festival where they showcased their precise and energetic performance style to a packed tent of avid metal fans.

    In early 2012 the band took their biggest risk to date and parted ways with their singer of 6 years (Mikey Slatcher) soon after the release of their second EP 'Ghost in the Machine'. The decision was based on the feeling that the band needed a frontman who shared their desire for making a solid impact on the modern day metal scene and was willing to put in the time and effort to make it happen. Soon after, Waking Theo welcomed aboard Craig Gordon, a passionate and skilled vocalist who now completes the current line-up.

    Since the addition of Craig, Waking Theo have produced a 3 track EP entitled 'Reborn' in order to showcase Craig's voice to their fans and set about creating a fresh interest in the band.

    Currently the band is in the process of writing fresh material with a view to have a full length album ready to release before the end of 2013.

    Who is who in the band:

    Craig Gordon -- Vocals
    Ben Wright -- Lead Guitar
    Chris Town -- Rhythm Guitar
    Chris Giles -- Bass Guitar
    Chris Vinter - Drums

    Lyrics:

    Far beyond the borders we're pushed away
    Our voices silent, we die in vain
    You've burnt the bridges and built the walls
    Forced into exile we fight for our cause
    Your failure is our gain
    Bury the darkness, forget the meaning of my name
    Victims of creation, we've drawn outside the lines
    We don't need absolution, this is our time
    So save your selves! Feed the fallen to the lions
    Save yourselves! Wash the bloodstains from the knifes edge
    Where do we go now? Without a name
    There will be no words upon my grave
    So we build the bridges and pull down the walls
    We have no masters, we answer to ourselves
    So save your prayers, we'll find our own way
    Forget my path, your legs won't make it
    Victims of creation, we've drawn outside the lines
    We don't need absolution, this is our time
    So save your selves! Feed the fallen to the lions
    Save yourselves! Wash the bloodstains from the knifes edge
    We live our lives on the outside
    I bid farewell to the confines
    Breathe in my voice these words they will find you
    Breathe in my voice these words they will find you
    Save your selves! Feed the fallen to the lions
    Save yourselves! Wash the bloodstains from the knifes edge
    We live our lives on the outside
    I bid farewell to the confines
    As time passes by, the darkness consumes me
    I close my eyes and I feel so far away
