Hailing from the shores of Santa Cruz, CA, modern heavy metal revivalist James Durbin has released his boldest, heaviest album to date, the debut album from DURBIN, “The Beast Awakens“. James Durbin has finally released the album that he has always wanted to over the course of his decade long recording career. Combining his love of all things DIO, Iron Maiden, and Judas Priest, Durbin set out to craft his own signature strain of fantasy inspired power metal for his debut Durbin album, “The Beast Awakens”. Fans of heavy metal revivalists like Haunt, Eternal Champion, Sumerlands, Enforcer, and the like, as well as hard rock and classic heavy metal enthusiasts in general are in for a treat!

“An ironclad homage to metal’s classic New Wave of British Heavy Metal era, which finds the frontman in peak form and will leave you convinced this must be some long lost gem that was inexplicably left in the vaults of a long-defunct indie metal label from nearly 40 years ago.” -Loudwire
