March 2003: after a necessary but fruitful search for identity
and a few live appearances in 2001 / 2002, swAke. introduces its
permanent line-up that captures the essence of its current substance.
Then the band evolves through more concerts and more contacts. March
2004 is the release date of our very first studio recording reverse
The band designates its own style as being psycho-metal
which is a term clearly established by its members at the origin
of the journey. It is a musical trend deeply rooted in the metal
realm with a very psychological and conceptual approach
swAke. claims its belonging to the stream of modern metal generated
by current bands, that is to say a musical genre in the bloom
of a strong renewal.
The band creates its oddity through strange sounding atmospheres
filled with electronic chaos and dark ambiences, supported by
the imagery of swAke.
