AWAKENING FROM ABYSS follows on from the THE LOVEBITES EP, a limited release which sold out in Japan and was recently released in the UK and Europe with a poster, English liner notes and lyric translations. NEO Magazine, the UK’s longest running Asian Pop Culture publication awarded the EP a full five stars, commenting “Iron Maiden would be proud. LOVEBITES have the makings of metal stars.”
The album has been mixed by Mikko Karmila and mastered by Mika Jussila of Finnvox Studios in Finland, the same team behind the highly rated debut EP. Its cover art has been created by David Lopez Gómez, the illustrator behind German heavy metal band Helloween’s best album SWEET SEDUCTIONS, as well as their 30th anniversary book.
It also marks the first time LOVEBITES have recorded as a five-member band, with support guitarist mi-ya now joining as a permanent member.
