Rwake is a Southern sludge metal band from North Little Rock, Arkansas.


Rwake began as a four-piece in 1996. The band was originally called Wake. The first Wake show was March 15, 1997 in Batesville, Arkansas at the Landers Theater.[1]

They began touring in October 2001, and have self-released two recordings, Xenoglossalgia: The Last Stage of Awareness, and Absence Due to Projection. Since then three more albums have been released, Hell is a Door to the Sun, If You Walk Before You Crawl, You Crawl Before You Die and Voices Of Omens.

The band signed with Relapse Records in January 2006, and released "Voices Of Omens" in February 2007. After their Relapse debut, Rwake maintained a busy touring schedule in support of Voices Of Omens. Since then the band has laid low playing a few road stints here and there and going over seas two different times to Hellfest in France, and back for Roadburn in the Netherlands and further dates in Europe and finally the UK. The band finished up work for their second album on Relapse titled Rest, which was released September 27, 2011.
