All together, their energy is not unlike the first time you heard Nirvana or the Misfits. Awakening was recorded locally at the Diamond Factory with Travis Bonner (Pack of Wolves, Blurry Vision, Mammoth Grinder). The bare bones philosophy behind the record is centered in rock’s three basic elements: drums, bass and guitar. Vegatron deliberately moves away from the synthesizers and backing tracks so prevalent in today’s music. The lyrics come from a place of truth that as Collin’s puts it, “observe the fallacies, ironies, and double standards from within myself, but also as a reflection of the society that we live in now.” The record dives deep with subjects ranging from prescription drugs and gun trafficking to the inner desire to find happiness.
Awakening combines heavy thoughts and heavy sounds with big riffs and memorable melodies. With this solid debut album, Vegatron is poised to make an impact on both the Austin and national hard-rock scene. Read more on Last.fm.
