Awaken the Dreamers is the third studio album by American deathcore band All Shall Perish. It was released on September 5, 2008 through Nuclear Blast. The tracks: "When Life Meant More...", "Never... Again", "Awaken the Dreamers", and "Stabbing to Purge Dissimulation" have been added to the band's official MySpace page.[6] Rusty Cooley plays two guitar solos on the track "From so Far Away", and Cam Pipes performs guest vocals on "Black Gold Reign". The closing track, "Songs for the Damned", includes lyrics that reference famous heavy metal albums and songs by Opeth (My Arms, Your Hearse, Blackwater Park, Damnation), Slayer (Reign in Blood), Carcass (Swansong, Necroticism – Descanting the Insalubrious, Heartwork), Cannibal Corpse ("Stripped, Raped and Strangled"), Deicide (Once Upon the Cross), Dying Fetus (Destroy the Opposition), The Dillinger Escape Plan ("Sugar Coated Sour"), Iron Maiden ("2 Minutes to Midnight"), and Danzig (as well as the song "20 Eyes" by Danzig's early band, the Misfits).

The album sold just under 5,000 copies in its first week of release entering the Billboard 200 at number 126.[7]

Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett listed the album as one of his top 25 favorite albums from 2000 to 2009.[8]
