Masayume Der Opener ist ein wunderbarer Song, der mich vom ersten Moment an gefangen nimmt. "Princess" ist dessen passender und wuerdiger Nachfolger. Die beiden Tracks in der Mitte des Albums sind okay, mir aber etwas zu seicht und vorhersehbar. Dann aber gewinnt das Album am Ende nochmal Kraft und Kreativitaet.
Der Titel-Track ist eine wahre Progrock-Perle, die man 26 Minuten geniessen kann!
Freue mich auf mehr von dieser Band. Favorite track: The Gift of Awareness.

about

P.A.W.N. is proud to present its first CD: „The Gift of Awareness“ – an epic and melodic Progressive MetalRock album that encourages one‘s mind to wander. The heart of the album is the 26-minute title track, the centerpiece for the intricately arranged concept. Progressive guitar riffs alternate with symphonic keyboard sounds and instrumental parts that are surprisingly approachable for the progressive genre. The female vocals offer an unusual contrast to the multilayered and complex music, without resorting to cliche‘d operatic tricks.

From listening to this powerfully produced album, it‘s hard to believe that most of the parts were created by only two musicians: Sebastian Rudolph (Keyboards, Keyboard-Guitars & Basses (Ministry of Rock), Vocals, iPad) and Dennis Matzat (Drums, Percussion). The duo not only composed and recorded the songs, but has also produced the album, in doing so, exploring the boundaries of home recording. Selected guest musicians were invited to join the pair from Hamburg, including Michael Klein. Klein, formerly a full member of P.A.W.N., contributes the lyrics to all of the songs and some vocals to the pirate-progger „A Voyage of Uncertainty“. Gottfried Rudolph and Sven Rhenius support the project with some acoustic-guitar-fills. Finally, the most impressive guest performance is contributed by Lisa-Marie Rothe (Vocals, Artwork and Logo Design).
