Death Sentence was Ashok's main band before he joined up with Root, and it displays his fine guitar skills with all the inherent Malmsteenisms that he so stupendously flaunts nowadays. Awaiting... is some seriously classy heavy death-ish metal with tons of good atmosphere and good vibrations. Quite honestly, this shits all over similar bands such as Opeth...just going to show it often matters more what land you call home or whose cock you do suck; more so than the quality of the music. FYI, I await the Cinnamon Dawn every night. I put some of that shit in my morning oatmeal...it's delicious.
