Forward Energy: The Awakening by Glenn Astarita, published on March 3, 2012. Forward Energy: The Awakening. One never knows whether reed men Jim Ryan and Rent Romus will take matters to the next level or slam conventional jazz applications through the meat-grinder. Respectively, the artists are known for skirting the outside through the mouthpiece of various ensemble configurations, straddling the avant-garde, and an array of mechanisms that often defy categorization.

Awakening of Aggression" was titled for one simple reason, half the material written for it was under those circumstances - I was being dealt a lot of disappointment and frustration during that year, and getting through it trying to find resolve was taking a very long time, and challenging my spirit. That would be the short explanation behind the motivation of at least half of this album. Lets start with the first 4 songs. When doing a new solo album, after I release my previous one, there are already a number of ideas I usually have on the backburner for the next one, that I will revisit after a good chunk of time passes, and see what I can finish of them and, or be inspired to create new tracks to theme something around. The following songs were selected, tweaked and finished from different ideas and different time periods.
Risen is the debut album by South African gothic rock band The Awakening released in April 1997. The record contains the hit single "The Sounds of Silence," an adaptation of the song by Simon and Garfunkel. The cover achieved massive popularity throughout South Africa and remains one of the band's most renowned singles. Production for Risen began in March 1996. The album was recorded at Mega Music Studios in Johannesburg with producer Leon Erasmus. All songs written by Ashton Nyte except where noted.
